Abstract

Cyber-physical systems are characterized by an IT infrastructure controlling effects in the physical world. Attacks are intentional actions trying to cause undesired effects in the physical world. We examine to which extent traditional IT security techniques can protect against attacks on cyber-physical systems and which additional measures could be deployed to strengthen their security. Properties relevant in this context are the veracity and plausibility of the data being processed.
