Modeling, analysis and design of secure networked control systems
Grant number: DP170104099 | Funding period: 2017 - 2020
This project aims to develop models, design and analysis techniques for secure Networked Control Systems (NCS). These could control large-scale and complex distributed systems. Improved NCS technology will underpin our ability to optimise water and energy use, live in sustainable communities and create greater efficiencies in manufacturing and transport globally. Only secure NCS design methodologies can use this emerging technology to deliver benefits while protecting it against cyber-attacks. Modelling and designing secure NCS with specific networks is expected to realise the full potential of existing and emerging technology.
