University researchers develop algorithm to detect, isolate cyber-attacks in networked control systems
in an effort to combat cyber attacks, North Carolina State University researchers have developed a software algorithm to detect and isolate cyber-attacks on networked control systems that play an important role in coordinating transportation, power and other infrastructure across the United States.
The networked control systems not only connect and coordinate activities between computers and physical devices, but also connect temperature sensors, heating systems and user controls in modern buildings. Largely used for transportation and power in the national infrastructure, the networked control systems are vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
Two costly, high-profile software called 'Flame' and 'Stuxnet' have been used to attack networked control systems in recent years.
The huge and complex structure of the networked control systems have provoked designers to create 'distributed network control systems' (D-NCSs) to allow all the system agents to work together and coordinate their activities, allowing the systems to operate more efficiently and more safely.
The researchers have successfully developed a software algorithm to detect an individual agent in a D-NCS if it has been compromised to a cyber-attack. ...
