Industrial control systems are a vital part of the critical infrastructure. The potentially large impact of a failure makes them attractive targets for adversaries. Unfortunately, simplistic approaches to intrusion detection using protocol analysis or näıve statistical estimation techniques are inadequate in the face of skilled adversaries who can hide(More)
Modern process control systems are increasingly vulnerable to subversion. Attacks that directly target production processes are difficult to detect because signature-based approaches are not well-suited to the unique requirements of process control systems. Also, anomaly detection mechanisms have difficulty coping with the non-linearity of industrial(More)
Defensive actions in critical infrastructure environments will increasingly require automated agents to manage the complex, dynamic interactions that occur between operators and malicious actors. Characterizing such agent behavior requires the ability to reason about distributed environments where the state of a channel or process depends on the actions of(More)
