Dr. Sargolzaei presents the “Security of Networked Control Systems” at Sonoma State University on Thursday, February 4th at 4:00 pm PST.
Abstract – With the immense growth of networked control systems (NCSs) development and utilization in critical infrastructures such as unmanned aerial vehicles and autonomous systems, assurance of their safety, security, and resiliency are yet a significant challenge for industries. Although defense mechanisms for NCSs have been significantly improved, incorporating smart detection and control platforms, yet a similar growth in the generations and models of cyber-attacks cannot be discarded. Existing control and communication protocol strategies are not fully capable of preventing and responding to new types of cyber-attacks. This requires vulnerability identifications along with smart, collaborative integration of controllers, sensors, actuators, and communication protocols in real-time. The seminar discusses recently introduced a mathematical approach to the Time Delay Switch (TDS) attack as a comprehensive outlook for the new generation of cyber-attacks.
