Two trends will help to ensure resilient electricity supply in Smart Cities: a) the ongoing deployment of Smart Grid technology and b) the adoption of distributed energy resources. Unfortunately, the increased reliance on ICT in the Smart Grid will expose new threats that could result in incidents that might affect urban electricity distribution networks by(More)
Amongst the features of Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs), their flexibility, dynamicity, and scalability make them particularly attractive for adoption in the ICT infrastructure of organizations. Such features come at the cost of improved difficulty in monitoring the SOA for error detection: i) faults may manifest themselves differently due to services(More)
Self-adaptive systems need to be designed with respect to threats within their operating conditions. Identifying such threats during the design phase can benefit from the involvement of stakeholders. Using a system model, the stakeholders, who may neither be IT experts nor security experts, can identify threats as a first step towards formulating security(More)
The loosely coupled interoperability of heterogeneous existing systems, together with the ongoing replacement of monolithic systems design with Off-The-Shelf (OTS) approaches, promotes a new architectural paradigm that is called System of Systems (SoS). In SoSs, independent and autonomous constituent systems (CSs) cooperate to achieve higher-level goals.(More)
Cyber security is becoming more and more relevant with the advent of large-scale systems made of independent and autonomous constituent systems that interoperate to achieve complex goals. To ensure security of cyberphysical systems, it is important to analyze identified threats and their possible consequences. In case of smart grids as an example of a(More)
