Cross Cutting Thrusts: Threat Analysis and Modeling
Scope: The ubiquitous use of information and communication technologies has resulted in intelligent, increasingly interconnected, complex, interdependent, and therefore more vulnerable, systems. While highly dense and distributed wireless sensor-actuator networks promise a wealth of new applications and a radical improvement to the existing ones, their robustness to faults and security breaches represents a major concern, as issues of communication delay, data loss, time-synchronization and data integrity play a critical role. The project aims at designing robust, secure, efficient Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).
Outcomes: Journal publication, multiple conference publications, follow-on funding via research collaboration with industry within the realm of critical infrastructure.
