Timed Event-Based Methods for Networked Control Systems Security – MENACES

Submission summary

In today's Industry 4.0, the manufacturing sector has become very vulnerable to cyber attacks on their networked control systems (NCS). NCSs are now considered a special form of cyber-physical systems where cyber elements collaborate to control physical entities. They operate in networked environments as they need to communicate remotely with monitoring and management systems. This makes them more vulnerable to intrusions and cyber-attacks that may cause the interruption of the production, and at worst, could manipulate the control process and induce a catastrophic event. The objective of the MENACES project is to use the discrete event systems (DESs) theory to model, analyse the hybrid behaviour, and detect attacks of industrial processes. These digital twin models will take into account heterogeneous data and temporal aspects for the representation of security concepts. The goal is to develop timed methods for efficient and early detection of cyber-attacks in NCSs.
