Aspect-oriented modeling of attacks in automotive cyber-physical systems


This paper introduces aspect-oriented modeling (AOM) as a powerful, model-based design technique to assess the secu- rity of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Particularly in safety- critical CPS such as automotive control systems, the pro- tection against malicious design and interaction faults is paramount to guaranteeing correctness and reliable opera- tion. Essentially, attack models are associated with the CPS in an aspect-oriented manner to evaluate the system under attack. This modeling technique requires minimal changes to the model of the CPS. Using application-specic metrics, the designer can gain insights into the behavior of the CPS under attack. Copyright 2014 ACM.
