Project

The goal to enhance the security of Critical Infrastructures (CRITIS) throughout all levels against unknown cyber-attacks requires the consideration of different perspectives and interdisciplinary knowledge. For our approach this results in four research areas: security of communication, security of platforms, security of the whole process and security of human interaction. The need of safety and security in running processes prevents the development of methods and algorithms in live processes. Therefore the fifth area, the simulation and evaluation platform, is necessary.

The cooperation of different partner like supply carriers, system integrators, software developers, operating companies and research institutes is essential and affects the outcome significantly. The involved circle of companies consists of small, medium and large enterprises. The research institutes are research institutes, company research departments and one university as well. The research partners contribute competence in social science, computer security, industrial automation, machine learning, pattern recognition and security in telecommunication.

The major advantage of our project is the capture and analysis of real process data. This data is captured in real plants of the different operating companies within the use-cases on different automation levels. This includes the communications data, the software sources and data models on the sensor-, control level and supervision level. Given that we are able to understand the behavior and its related signals and events. The evaluation platform will be used to test and present regular, irregular and remote scenarios. This concept is unique and will help to understand system errors and failures caused by malicious software, machine- and/or human-interaction.

Based on this research an empirical classifications of individual aspects can be done. These aspects are divided into smaller aspects to identify the weakness and strength of the real system. Methods and algorithms will be tested in the simulation and evaluation environment which is based on real behavior and real data. This ensures the verification of a correct solution.
