STP-CPS: Security Trust Privacy for Emerging Cyber-Physical Systems

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) integrate computing and communication capabilities with monitoring and control of entities in the physical world. These systems are usually composed of a set of networked agents, including sensors, actuators, control processing units, and communication devices. All the critical infrastructures will also be a part of such a cyber-physical ecosystem to enable smart and connected environments. The tight coupling of Cybersystems with the physical systems brings challenges in terms of stability, security, reliability, robustness, and efficiency. Prevalence of such cyber-physical ecosystem, which is inherent of distributed nature, demands to architect models and propose solutions that can suitably address the above-mentioned challenges. A multitude of CPS devices and applications exist in industrial, transportation, medical, home‑security, building automation, emergency management, power, and many other systems, which serve critical functions in our lives. Given the popularity of the CPS applications, securing them against malicious activities is of utmost importance. Otherwise, malfunctioning and insecure CPS devices and applications can cause enormous damage to individuals, businesses, and nations.

The automatic orchestration of networks is enabled by the Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Virtualization (NV), and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) paradigms, and offers many advantages for the network operators and service providers. Especially, SDN can be integrated with CPS to provide scalable, reliable, secure and efficient communication in a heterogeneous infrastructure. It manages and verifies the correctness of the network operations at run time. The globalized view of SDN controller and programmability feature enables control, configure, monitor and fault (due to accidental failures and malicious attacks) detection and remediate of abnormal operation in the SDN-based CPS more efficiently as compared to the traditional based networks.

This workshop intends to focus on understanding security challenges and the attack surface of modern cyber-physical systems, and architect innovative solutions with the help of cutting-edge technologies. We hope to attract high-quality research articles on the above-mentioned topic along with review articles that describe the current state of the art. The workshop seeks novel submissions describing practical and theoretical solutions to the cybersecurity challenges facing CPS. Submissions may represent any application area for CPS. The proposed workshop will serve as a forum for researchers from academia, government, and industries, to exchange ideas, present new results, and provide future visions on these topics.

Example topics of interest are given below, but are not limited to:

· STP for softwarized CPS architectures
· Trustworthy AI and CPS
· D2D security and CPS
· Threat models and Vulnerability analysis for softwarized CPS
· Physical layer security for CPS
· Anonymization in CPS
· STP of CPS in automotive aerospace, embedded, industrial control systems and medical devices
· STP management and usability issues in CPS
· User interfaces for secure and privacy-aware pervasive computing applications
· STP-aware service discovery mechanisms for pervasive computing environments
· STP issues for handheld device CPS applications such as healthcare
· Application of blockchain technologies for STP-aware CPS
· Resilient deployment strategies and auto-configuration mechanisms for softwarized CPS ecosystems
· Secure system architectures, protocols and applications for softwarized CPS environment (smart grid, healthcare, etc.)
· Secure Integration of CPS and Cloud Computing
· Energy-efficient security in softwarized IoT and CPS
· Trust models and trust handling/propagation for softwarized CPS security
