Surveying unresolved security problems for automated buildings. 
Smart Buildings exploit various resources in order to offer enriched services and information for the buildings occupants. Achieving security in such a context with predefined and static securityExpand
Smart buildings and urban spaces
This chapter introduces four aspects that are strongly interconnected: the software and hardware of the smart building systems, building types in the urban spaces, permits and standards for smart buildings, and smart building market potentials. Expand

In this paper different approaches to security in building automation systems are discussed and the different benefits as well as limitations of the solutions is shown. Expand
A Context Aware Anomaly Behavior Analysis Methodology for Building Automation Systems
Advances in mobile and pervasive computing, electronics technology, and the exponential growth in Internet of Things (IoT) applications and services has led to Building Automation System (BAS) thatExpand
Factors Affecting the Adoption of Smart Buildings at Universities
This study explores the factors that affect the adoption smart building at universities. The main research objective of the study was to understand the factors affect the adoption of smart buildingsExpand
Anomaly behavior analysis for building automation systems
This paper presents an anomaly based Intrusion Detection System (IDS) that combines context awareness and Cyber DNA techniques to detect network misbehavior from security and functionality perspectives and evaluates the approach in the Smart Building testbed developed at the University of Arizona Center for Cloud and Autonomic Computing.

Data Privacy Management, Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Technology
This paper provides a formal definition of attack trees in Isabelle’s Higher Order Logic: a proof calculus that defines how to refine sequences of attack steps into a valid attack. Expand
A business ecosystem driven market analysis: The bright green building market potential
Due to the huge globally emerging market of the bright green buildings, this paper aims to develop a business-ecosystem driven market analysis approach for the investigation of the bright greenExpand
Sicherheit im Internet der Dinge
Dieses Kapitel fuhrt in die IT-Sicherheit fur das Internet der Dinge (IoT) ein. Zunachst wird definiert, was das IoT ist und weshalb IT-Sicherheit im IoT sich von der IT-Sicherheit in klassischenExpand
Towards a Toolkit for Utility and Privacy-Preserving Transformation of Semi-structured Data Using Data Pseudonymization
The toolkit could be used to pseudonymize data in order to preserve the privacy of data owners while data processing and to meet the requirements of the new European general data protection regulation. Expand


Security in Building Automation Systems
This paper starts with a security threat analysis and identifies the challenges of providing security in the building automation domain and two approaches that provide both secure communication and secure execution of possibly untrusted control applications are presented. Expand
Securing BACnet's Pitfalls
This work provides the first implementation and evaluation of traffic normalization for BAS traffic, and presents a novel solution for the two most important BACnet layers, i.e. those independent of the data link layer technology, namely the network and the application layer. Expand
Envisioning Smart Building Botnets
The botnet concept and scenario is novel in the sense that it takes advantage of the phyiscal capabilities of a building and as it has to adapt to a specialized environment being highly deterministic, predictable, simplistic and conservative. Expand
Current developments and challenges in building automation
The classic three-layer automation model is transferred into a service-oriented architecture (SOA) of objects, which requires a defense-in-depth strategy to ensure security and the strength of integrated building automation over different domains and industries is highlighted. Expand
Building automation in the 21st century
The term "intelligent building" is becoming more and more popular and this concept has generated a good deal of excitement during the last decade, much of which subsequently dissipated once theExpand
Where are My Colleagues and Why? Tracking Multiple Persons in Indoor Environments
This paper presents an information fusion approach based on causal models to solve the simultaneous identification and multi target tracking problem in an office environment equipped with infrared presence sensors for light control as modern buildings offer. Expand
