Alefiya Hussain presents on Security and Resiliency of CPS Infrastructure at USC’s Center for CPS & IoT

DETER’s Alefiya Hussain presented on CPS domain-specific specializations and her work on evaluating the security and resiliency of CPS infrastructure at the first Mini-Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security and Privacy, held at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things, on May 2, 2017. Over the past decade, there has become a great interest in developing novel cyber-physical systems and analyzing them with respect to security.

Ethics & Privacy in Cyber Physical Systems presented by DETER's Dr. Alefiya Hussain at USC Symposium at DECIDE

Dr. Alefiya Hussain hosted a panel on Engineering Ethics at the USC Center for Interdisciplinary Decisions and Ethics (DECIDE) on October 28th. The panel was part of the Fall symposium on Next Generation Ethics and addressed some of the engineering ethical dilemmas we face today or will face in the near future with advances in various technologies in the area of cyber physical systems and the Internet of Things.

Report on NASPI 2014 Survey of Synchrophasor System Networks

The NASPI (North American SynchroPhasor Initiative) working group brings together power engineers and other people from electric utilities, from power equipment vendors, and from academia. NASPI's objective is to improve the reliability, throughput, efficiency, and economics of the electric power grid by accelerating the widespread deployment of devices called PMUs (Phasor Measurement Units). A PMU makes fine-grained time-synchronized measurements of the electrical state of a particular point on the grid.

Cypress at TridentCom

This week I presented the first Cypress paper at TridentCom 2015 in Vancouver, BC. TridentCom is an international conference that brings together technical experts and researchers from academia, industry, and government to present work concerning research infrastructure and testbeds for advanced networking, cloud computing, cyber physical systems, and connected vehicles.

NIST Cyber-Physical Systems Testbed Workshop

This week NIST held a workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) testbeds. While the development of CPS testbeds is still in the early stages, this workshop was presented as an opportunity to bring a diverse spectrum of the CPS and testbed communities together, to talk about key capabilities that CPS testbeds should have and the design principles that make them possible.

Join DETER at SmartAmerica Expo to Showcase Innovations for Cyber-Physical Systems

I am here in Washington D.C. preparing for the Smart America Challenge Expo.  Our team - the Smart Energy Cyber-Physical Systems – will be demonstrating an integrated federated cyber physical testbed for experimentation and analysis for improving efficiency and resiliency, as well as protecting the crucial resource from potential terrorist attacks.

Cyber-physical System Experimentation Using DETER

DeterLab provides the capability to conduct risk evaluations of cyber-physical systems where the controllable variables range from IP level dynamics to introduction of malicious entities such as DDoS attacks. I recently co-authored an article published in the IEEE Magazine that discusses how the cyber aspects and the physical aspects of such systems can be integrated together to provide a CPS risk assessment environment.
