Surveying unresolved security problems for automated buildings. 
A Systematic Literature Review of cyber security published research articles proposed over the period 2013-2018 concluded that the cooperation between engineers in civil engineering and software development experts will be needed to achieve coherent security in a smart-building application.

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.
Construction Cybersecurity and Critical Infrastructure Protection: Significance, Overlaps, and Proposed Action Plan
It is proposed that construction learns from the work done in the context of critical infrastructures (CI), and the possible inclusion of Construction 4.0 considerations into existing critical infrastructure protection (CIP) frameworks with minimum frictions is described.
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) that
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 buildings
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.
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 green

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.
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.
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.
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.
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 the
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.
