Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) use computational resources to control physical processes and provide critical services. For this reason, an attack in these systems may have dangerous consequences in the physical world. Hence, cyber- resilience is a fundamental property to ensure the safety of the people, the environment and the controlled physical processes. In this paper, we present metrics to quantify the cyber-resilience level based on the design, structure, stability, and performance under…

Research progress of CPS resilience

A statistical analysis of the research on CPS resilience in recent years is conducted by using the systematic mapping method, and the three aspects of CPS resilience, namely, modeling, evaluation, and application are deeply summarized for facilitating further research.

Safe and secure cyber‐physical systems

Six articles are selected that provide relevant contributions to the field of safety and security for CPSs, the next generation of cyber‐Physical Systems.

Multi-Agent Learning for Resilient Distributed Control Systems

This chapter introduces the creation of an artificial intelligence (AI) stack in the MAS to provide computational intelligence for subsystems to detect, respond, and recover and discusses the role of MAS learning in resiliency.



Cyber-Physical Resilience: Definition and Assessment Metric

A formal definition of resilience and assessment metric for resilience, which quantifies the ability of the system to recover from an attack provided the attack is discovered within a fixed time interval, as well as the cost of recovery.

“Resilience” describes how systems operate at an acceptable level of normalcy despite disturbances or threats. In this paper we first consider the cognitive, cyber-physical interdependencies inherent

A Moving Target Defense Control Framework for Cyber-Physical Systems

A rigorous mathematical framework is presented to guarantee the stability of the equilibrium point of the closed-loop system, and provide a quantified bound on the performance loss when utilizing both reactive and proactive mechanisms.

Detection of covert attacks on cyber-physical systems by extending the system dynamics with an auxiliary system

An approach to detect a covert attack by extending the original system with a switched auxiliary system is proposed and a detection system using a switched Luenberger observer is presented.

Robust detection and reconstruction of state and sensor attacks for cyber-physical systems using sliding modes

The problem of detection and reconstruction of cyber-attacks corrupting states and/or outputs of a linear cyber-physical system is addressed. Robust state/sensor attack observers are designed able

Resilience metrics for cyber systems

A generic approach is proposed that could integrate actual data, technical judgment, and literature-based measures to assess system resilience across physical, information, cognitive, and social domains and link national policy goals to specific system measures, such that resource allocation decisions can be translated into actionable interventions and investments.

Secure Estimation and Control for Cyber-Physical Systems Under Adversarial Attacks

A new simple characterization of the maximum number of attacks that can be detected and corrected as a function of the pair (A,C) of the system is given and it is shown that it is impossible to accurately reconstruct the state of a system if more than half the sensors are attacked.

Power system protection and resilient metrics

The interdependencies inherent in critical infrastructure systems are considered and some distributed resilience metrics that can be in current supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) to provide a level of state awareness are discussed.

On the use of watermark-based schemes to detect cyber-physical attacks

A new detection scheme which employs several non-stationary watermarks is proposed which is able to detect adversaries using non-parametric methods, but it is not equally effective against adversaries using parametric identification methods.

Towards a unified resilience analysis: State estimation against integrity attacks

This work aims to present the generic sufficient and necessary conditions for resilience by considering a general class of convex optimization based estimators and specialize the result to scalar sensor measurements case and present some conservative but verifiable results for practical use.
