Cyber Physical Systems

Cyber and physical spaces are becoming more intertwined, and you can now control your home appliances and even your car from your smart phone. If you can, then your neighbour can also... and so can a cyber attacker! It might just be annoying if this happened. But it would be catastrophic if the attacker targets all home appliances of an entire city, or the power grid, or the water distribution system. We are developing methods to understand and manage these risks, and keep your physical world secure against cyber attackers.
