Seminario di Informatica: Staying Alive: Cyber-Physical Security in Future Cities

Lunedì 3 Novembre 2014, ore 14:30 - Aula 1BC45 - David Yau



Lunedì 3 Novembre 2014 alle ore 14:30 in aula 1BC45, David Yau (Singapore University of Technology and Design) terrà un seminario dal titolo "Cyber-Physical Security in Future Cities".

Digital control and communication are being used to modernize urban infrastructures, such as electrical grids and water systems, to meet the increasing demands of future cities for size, performance, and sustainability. While the added intelligence provides desirable performance features, it also adds to the system's complexity, which raises equally critical concerns for safety and security. In this talk, I will overview research that analyzes cyber-physical system (CPS) vulnerabilities such as real-time consumer pricing in emerging smart-grid demand response. I will also propose a design methodology to monitor the (not fully trustworthy) high performance operation of a smart grid, but assure its fallback to a simple and safe operation mode when the system drifts too close to unsafety.
