Trade-off Management between Safety and Cybersecurity

Project: Research

Project Details


This research is aimed at assuring cybersecurity and safety of complex CPS/IoT systems, which arise from convergence of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT). Such systems-of-systems interact with humans and integrate digital capabilities (networking, data, computational systems) with physical devices and engineering systems to enhance performance and functionality. Their application domains include transportation, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture and other sectors.
The core challenge addressed by this research is the trade-off management between cybersecurity and safety. Safety and cybersecurity are inter-dependent, often complementing or conflicting each other. Trade-off assessment can help to determine an optimal balance between safety and security measures and risks.
