Industrial cybersecurity has become a key research topic in recent years due to the massive connectivity brought by the Internet of Things and the rise of cyberattacks against industrial assets. While fostering contemporary applications and use cases, ubiquitous Internet access has also exposed legacy operational technologies to new and challenging security threats that must be addressed. This Special Session focuses on novel security, safety, and privacy-enhancing technologies for current and future industrial applications.

Topics under this session include (but not limited to)

  • Security, safety, or privacy-enhancing technologies in industrial systems
  • Modeling of cybersecurity threats
  • Applications of Artificial Intelligence in cybersecurity of industrial systems
  • Applications of distributed ledger technologies/blockchains in Industry 4.0
  • Self-sovereign identity for M2M and decentralized device-to-device communication
  • Hardware advances for securing Industrial devices and networks
  • Quantitative evaluation and/or interconnections among non-functional aspects (e.g., reliability vs. safety, security vs. performance)
  • Run-time methods and technologies for Complex Event Detection systems
  • Software engineering methods and techniques for high dependable control systems
  • Security and privacy issues in CPS for industry systems
  • Cyber-Physical Attacks and Countermeasures
  • Real-time Threat Detection and Response for CPS and industry systems
  • Case studies / lessons learned of security, safety, or privacy assessments of industrial systems
