WiP Abstract: Platform for Security-Aware Design of Human-on-the-Loop Cyber-Physical Systems

2017 ACM/IEEE 8th International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS), 2017

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are commonly supervisory control systems where a human-on-the-loop (HOL) supervises one or more autonomous systems, while embedded autonomy allows the operators to intermittently attend to the system and other tasks. Thus, it is imperative that the design of any security-aware CPS considers the impact of the human interaction with the system on security guarantees. Yet, there has ...

  • Applying Valued Booleans in Testing of Cyber-Physical Systems

    In software testing, as in cyber-physical systems testing, test suites are traditionally developed by hand. In this work we consider one framework for putting the computer in charge of the testing instead: constrained random test case generation as supported by the tool QuickCheck. This is implemented by the use of Valued Booleans (VBools). VBools naturally allow for an extension of QuickCheck into cyber-physical systems, which is useful particularly since QuickCheck can perform shrinking of test cases. Shrinking is a technique to make test cases simpler while preserving failure.

  • Platforms for Cyber-Physical Systems - fractal operating system and integrated development environment for the physical world

    In the article, cyber-physical systems is defined as complex systems that are able to control and coordinate physical and organizational processes on a local and a global scale via the use of information and communication technology. It links previously disjoint technical and organizational processes facilitates the provision of new products and, especially, services, exceeding the already substantial changes initiated by the business information systems and embedded systems alone. Typical examples are smart electric grids, facilitating the management of many distributed small-volume production and consumption electric loads, allowing to integrate small-to- medium-volume - production, buffering, or consumption - installations technically and economically. As cyber-physical systems share commonalties with information systems as well as embedded systems, their characteristics give rise to three different dimensions of complexity that have to be addressed simultaneously: cross-dimension; self-dimension; and live-dimension. These dimension of complexity must be addressed when we consider suitable architectural principles for cyber-physical systems, and especially the identification of general functionalities and their interoperation in such systems.

  • Control of Large-Scale Cyber-Physical Systems with Agents via a Representative Model

    In this paper, a controller design methodology is discussed for a large-scale cyber-physical system (CPS) with agents having various characteristics. Especially, a representative model is introduced, which helps us to design controllers. Actually, the representative model is of much lower order than the scale of the large-scale CPS, and thus designing a controller for this model is much easier. In this paper, we derive a representative model such that a controller designed for this model stabilizes the original large-scale CPS with given control performance. The derived representative model is in the form of a nominal model with the average discrepancy.

  • WiP Abstract: Platform for Security-Aware Design of Human-on-the-Loop Cyber-Physical Systems

    Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are commonly supervisory control systems where a human-on-the-loop (HOL) supervises one or more autonomous systems, while embedded autonomy allows the operators to intermittently attend to the system and other tasks. Thus, it is imperative that the design of any security-aware CPS considers the impact of the human interaction with the system on security guarantees. Yet, there has been very little work on design of Human-CPS that promotes human situational awareness for enhanced system performance, particularly in terms of cyber-physical security and real-time defense against attacks. One of the main obstacles to the rapid advancement of this field is the scarcity of testbeds for evaluating security-aware Human-CPS interactions. We present RESCHU-SA, an extendable virtual platform that facilitates studying the impact that HOL has on security of CPS with varying levels of autonomy. It allows users to analyze how inductive reasoning and ability to provide context, particularly during an attack, affects the overall CPS security guarantees. The proposed platform is an extension of the Research Environment for Supervisory Control of Heterogeneous Unmanned Vehicles (RESCHU) simulation environment, previously used in various applications including studies focused on supervising Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) missions and evaluation of interface usability.

  • Sustainability of cyber-physical systems in the context of targeted destructive influences

    In this paper authors propose a new approach to security assesment for cyberphysical systems. Existing security methodology applicable to information systems is ineffective for cyberphysical systems, which consists of information and physical components. Authors formulate requirements for security assesment taking into account key characteristics of cyberphysical systems. Analysis of scientific research devoted to development of a security assessment for cyberphysical systems has demonstrated their inconsistency with the formulated requirements. Authors propose a new assessment of cyberphysical systems security in the form of cyber-sustainabilty, which ensures retention of system in a stable steady state under destructive influence. Authors also propose a computational measure for assessing cyber-sustainability, based on self-similarity assessment. As a numerical measure, the Hurst exponent was chosen. Conducted experimental tests demonstrated effectiveness of proposed approach and high sensitivity of the Hurst exponent to destructive influence on cyberphysical systems.

  • Falsification of Cyber-Physical Systems with Reinforcement Learning

    We propose a novel framework for testing configurable cyber-physical systems over a given specification represented as metric temporal logic formula. Given a system model with configurable properties and a specification, our approach first learns to falsify the model by using reinforcement learning technique under a certain variety of configurations. After the training phase, it is expected that the experienced falsification agent can quickly find an input signal such that the output violates the specification, even though the specific configuration is not known to the agent. Thus we can use this agent again and again when different configurations are investigated for a product family or for trials and errors of configuration design. We performed a preliminary experiment to validate our hypothesis that the reinforcement learning technique can be applied for falsification problems.

  • Model-driven functional testing of cyber-physical systems using deterministic replay techniques

    Specialized embedded computer systems are one of the core technologies of modern industrial cyber-physical systems. They implement application algorithms and perform data acquisition, processing and transfer. The article presents the original approach to functional testing of embedded computer systems to overcome a number of restrictions imposed by specifics of the process of their design and development.

  • Specification and Design of Cyber Physical Systems Based on System of Systems Engineering Approach

    Cyber-physical Systems of Systems (CPSoS) are large complex systems where physical elements interact with and are controlled by a large number of distributed and net-worked computing elements and human users. A SoS is an integration of a finite number of constituent systems which are independent and operable, and which are networked together for a period of time to achieve a certain higher goal. In order to specify and model such kind of systems, we need develop specification and modeling methods which would be capable to encompass the systems of systems (SoS) specific properties of cyber physical systems. In this paper, we propose a new paradigm for specifying and modeling cyber physical systems based on system-of-systems approach. We propose an approach to support specification and modeling cyber physical systems based on systems of systems engineering by integrating AADL, Modelicalml and other modeling language. On the basis of the hierarchical concept of industrial CPS system, a hierarchical design scheme of industrial CPSoS system based on OPC UA heterogeneous data integration processing is proposed. This paper will also use AADL for modeling CPS on three levels: 1). robot on the unit level; 2) workshops of smart factory on the system level 3) intellectual factory on the SOS level. For the physical aspect of cyber physical system, this paper will propose a method to combine modelical, Simulink and AADL model to model a unit robot which can interaction with real environment.

  • Image processing based anomaly detection approach for synchronous movements in cyber-physical systems

    Today cyber-physical systems are becoming more and more popular with the industry 4.0. Given the size and criticality of the systems they are used, it is very important that the cyber physical systems work properly. In this study, image-processing based anomaly movement detection method, which can be integrated to systems anytime, is proposed. With detection of anomaly movements and preventing unexpected situations, the cost arises from hitches, breakdowns or damaged productions is reduced. This study consists of two main section, first is implementing remote-controlled simple industrial robot system, second is the detection of unwanted movements and controlling the system.

  • Cyber-Physical Systems Testbed Based on Cloud Computing and Software Defined Network

    More standardized, networked and intelligentized nature of industry 4.0 has intensified critical infrastructures cyberthreats. According to cyber-physical systems (CPS) layered architecture and security requirements in industry 4.0, a cyber-physical systems testbed based on cloud computing and software defined network (SDN), or CPSTCS is proposed. The CPSTCS uses a network testbed based on cloud computing and SDN to recreate the cyber elements of cyber-physical systems and real-world physical devices for the physical components. The CPSTCS helps assess cyberthreats against the cyber and physical dimensions of critical infrastructures.
