Industrial cybersecurity has emerged as a key topic of research in recent years due to the massive connectivity brought by the Internet of Things and the rise of cyberattacks against industrial assets. While fostering contemporary use-cases and applications, the ubiquitous access to the Internet has also exposed legacy operational technologies to new and challenging security threats that need to be addressed. This Special Session focuses on novel security, safety, and privacy-enhancing technologies for existing and future industrial applications, aiming at bringing together researchers, practitioners, and experts from industry that conduct innovative cybersecurity work on related technical fields.

Topics under this session include (but not limited to)

  • Security, safety, or privacy - enhancing technologies in industrial systems
  • Modeling of cybersecurity threats
  • Applications of distributed ledger technologies / blockchains in Industry 4.0
  • Self - sovereign identity for M2M and decentralized device - to - device communication
  • Hardware advances for securing Industrial devices and networks
  • Quantitative evaluation and / or interconnections among non-functional aspects (e.g., reliability, security vs.performance)
  • Run-time methods and technologies for Complex Event Detection systems
  • Software engineering methods and techniques for high dependable control systems
  • Case studies / lessons learned of security, safety, or privacy assessments of industrial systems
