Title: Threat Modeling of Cyber-Physical Systems in Practice
Abstract: Traditional Cyber-physical Systems (CPSs) were not built with cybersecurity in mind. They operated on separate Operational Technology (OT) networks. As these systems now become more integrated with Information Technology (IT) networks based on IP, they expose vulnerabilities that can be exploited by the attackers through these IT networks. The attackers can control such systems and cause behavior that jeopardizes the performance and safety measures that were originally designed into the system. In this presentation, the results of interviewing the security experts including the approaches to identify threats to CPSs and ensure the quality of the created threat models, and the key challenges faced by the practitioners will be presented.
