## Description

Cyber-Physical System (CPS) is a broad term for software and hardware monitoring or controlling physical environments. This includes Operational Technology (OT), like industrial automation and control systems, transportation, water supply, energy production (SCADA, smart grid), and supply chains, but also areas such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Automotive, Medical, and smart home/building management systems. In the fourth industrial revolution era, corporations are increasingly dependent on connecting IT and OT to successfully fulfill their mission. Attacks on those networks and systems, as well as CPS in general, are constantly on the rise. Due to their capability to physically interact with their environment, the impact of such an attack can be potentially hazardous.

This seminar deals with various security aspects of CPS and their implications. The format represents an academic conference, including paper writing, submission, review, rebuttal, revision, presentation, and discussion.


## Topics (preliminary)

Possible topics include:

* Industrial applicability of Messaging Layer Security (MLS)

* Group Key Agreement on Industrial Busses

* Progressive Authentication Approaches

* An Analysis of Dumb Password Policies and the Why

* Authentication Method Obstacles

* GNSS Authenticity

* Exploring NFV for Industrial Security Applications

* Integrating security in the data plane - Using P4 for secure communication

* Light authenticity schemes in resource-constrained environments

* Secure Logging in CPS

* Automotive Authentication

* Video Streaming Security

* Intrusion Detection Systems for CPS

* Anomaly Detection for CPS

* Selection of Privacy-Enhancing Technologies

* Attribute-based encryption of data in P2P networks

* Federated Learning for CPS

* Forensic of Autonomous Vehicles

* Security of electronic data interchange

* Security of V2X

Furthermore, it is possible to suggest own topics within the seminar's thematic scope.


## Course Objectives

* Know and understand different aspects of CPS security

* Prepare, write, and review a scientific paper in LaTeX (English; IEEE Conference Proceedings Template; 10 pages excl. list of references and appendix)

* Present and discuss the topic (English; 25 minutes presentation + 15 minutes discussion)
