Transportation Cyber-Physical Security: Things We Should Know
Thursday, May 10, 2018 5:00:00 PM UTC - 7:00:00 PM UTC
Threats to cyber-physical systems are targeting institutions and infrastructures around the world, and transportation critical infrastructure is a target. This research addresses this problem with a strong alternative intrusion detection method, mainly in the analog domain. This method extracts the influence of manufacturing inconsistencies of devices on their output analog signal, so called fingerprints, and identifies compromised devices in the vehicle on the basis of these fingerprints. The webinar will also discuss attacks on Variable Message Signs (VMS). The researchers use a risk-based approach to perform a qualitative vulnerability-oriented threat analysis with aims at identifying issues that are caused by adversaries exploiting ITS security vulnerabilities with VMS. An impact-likelihood matrix maps the adverse impacts of the threat events onto a meaningful, visual matrix, helping decision-makers to prioritize risks of a hacking event.
