Special Issue Introduction

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) are smart systems that include engineered interacting networks of physical and computational components. They integrate computation, communication, sensing, and actuation with physical systems to fulfill time-sensitive functions with varying degrees of interaction with the environment, including human interaction. This technological evolution is expected to bring tremendous benefits for the government, the society, and the economy, including improved productivity and efficiency, better flexibility and agility, and increased profitability. However, it also comes with increased cyber security and privacy risks, primarily deriving from the integration of the physical space with cyberspace. Thus, as in all cases of a major shift in computing paradigms, a number of cyber security and privacy challenges arose, which cannot be addressed by simply porting solutions from other domains, such as the domain of Information and Communication Technologies. This special issue focuses on novel and innovative research results of either a theoretical or applied nature in the areas of cybersecurity, privacy, and resilience of cyber-physical systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
● Security governance and management for CPSs
● Attack and adversary modeling
● Cryptology for CPSs
● Authentication, access control, and authorization in CPSs
● Big data security for CPSs
● Blockchain use in CPSs
● CPS forensics
● CPS security, privacy, and safety requirements engineering
● Malware targeting CPSs
● Security and resilience of CPSs in critical infrastructures
● Legal and regulatory aspects of CPS security and privacy
● Human and organizational aspects of CPS security, privacy, and resilience
