In recent years, Cyber-Physical System (CPS) has become an important research direction for academia, industry, and government agencies as CPS is considered to be following the third wave of world information technology after the computer and the Internet. Software defined networking (SDN) is an emerging technology that can be integrated with CPS to provide scalable, reliable, secure and efficient communication in heterogeneous infrastructure. Blockchain technology clearly emerged as of increasing importance as it offers security solutions in various domains including CPS.
This workshop aims to bring together a number of researchers from academia, industry, and government agencies to focus on understanding security challenges and attack surface of modern cyber-physical systems, and architect innovative solutions with the help of cutting-edge technologies like SDN and Blockchain.
The workshop will serve as a forum for sharing experiences and outcomes with protocol design, real testbeds, experimental evaluation, prototyping and empirical characterization of Blockchain and SDN technologies in CPS. The workshop will facilitate discussions on unresolved issues in the field, such as blockchain-based security solutions of critical infrastructures, secure and resilient system architectures, protocols and applications for softwarized CPS environment, and SDN capabilities in critical infrastructures, as well as key challenges facing the software defined CPS of the future.
The workshop welcomes poster proposals for demonstrations of novel work / work-in-progress in software defined networking Blockchain for security in critical infrastructure as well as testbeds, measurement platforms and results, and innovative prototypes.
