Cybersecurity Protection for Cyber-Physical Systems Against Integrity Cyberattacks

Project description

Cybersecurity protection for industrial control systems

Cybersecurity represents a major challenge of our era, calling for new methods and tools for protection. The EU-funded CSP-CPS-A-ICA project will provide effective, efficient and reliable cybersecurity protection solutions for industrial control systems. Specifically, the research will address cybersecurity protection for cyber-physical systems against integrity cyberattacks by revealing the stealthiness of integrity attacks and developing detection and distinction methodologies and schemes from control perspectives. It will be conducted by the Control and Power Research Group at Imperial College London. The project will also include two 3-month secondments at the KIOS Research and Innovation Centre of Excellence at the University of Cyprus.

Objective

Dr Kangkang Zhang will carry out a project to concern cybersecurity protection for cyber-physical systems against integrity cyberattacks (CSP-CPS-A-ICA) by revealing the stealthiness of integrity attacks and then developing detection and distinction methodologies and schemes from control perspectives. This research aims to provide effective, efficient and reliable cybersecurity protections for industrial control systems (ICSs). The project will be carried out in the Control and Power (CAP) research group, within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), at the Imperial College London (Imperial), under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Parisini. As a part of the project, I will carry out two 3-month secondments in the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence (KIOS CoE), at the University of Cyprus (UCY). The expected benefits of this project are to achieve the above research aims and enable me to make a leap in my career as well as to create a close collaboration between Imperial and UCY in the cybersecurity-related research areas.
