Report lays groundwork for cyber-physical systems research
The Cyber Security Research Alliance released a report that lays out a logical road map for designing security into cyber-physical systems (CPS), which are IP-based systems that support the nation’s critical infrastructure and increasingly the target of cyberattackers.
CPS manipulate critical infrastructure operations such as power and water, industrial systems, transportation systems, medical devices, security systems, building automation and emergency management.
The report summarizes findings from an April 2013 workshop where industry, government and academic researchers explored how to address vulnerabilities in the global IT supply chain, government-industry information sharing on cyberattacks and CPS vulnerabilities, and approaches to CPS product assurance and trustworthy operational readiness.
CSRA is working on specific research topics associated with the report. Institutions and individual researchers interested in learning more about research opportunities may contact the CSRA via the CSRA website.
