Title

Case Study in Vulnerabilities of Infrastructure Systems

Abstract

Complex cyber-physical systems have become fundamental to modern society by effectively providing critical services and improving efficiency in various domains. However, as systems become more connected and more complex, they also can become more vulnerable and less robust. As a result, various failure modes become more common and easily triggered from both unanticipated and malicious perturbations. Research has been conducted in the area of vulnerability analysis for cyber-physical systems, to assist in locating these possible vulnerabilities before they can fail. This presentation will show work on a case study of an infrastructure system, a UAV drone swarm, to identify an observational vulnerability and show how it can be countered against.
