Securing Networked Control and Estimation Systems and Safeguarding Critical Infrastructure

Project Member(s): Bishop, A.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC DECRA Scheme)

Start year: 2014

Summary: Networked control and estimation underpins the core technology in numerous critical infrastructure systems; e.g. the electricity, transport and many defence systems. However, the networked nature of modern control systems often make them vulnerable to a deliberate attack; e.g. many industrial control systems may even be accessible through the internet. This project will consider the broad question: How can networked control and estimation systems be protected from malicious cyber attackers? An emphasis on robust control, estimation and robust security is a key driver of this project. The outcome will be a suite of algorithms, tools and design considerations for safeguarding networked, industrial, control and estimation systems from attack.
