- Key Vulnerabilities of Industrial Automation and Control Systems and Recommendations to Prevent Cyber-Attacks. P. González-Nalda, I. Etxeberria-Agiriano, I. Calvo; University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), Spain
Abstract: This paper presents a generic architecture for the design of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) based on inexpensive and easily available hardware and open source software components. This architecture provides a framework aimed at building CPS in a robust, flexible and modular way. The presented architecture intends to ease the construction of this kind of systems together with its evolution and management.
The potential of the proposed architecture is illustrated by means of a case study consisting of a mobile robotics application built with low cost hardware modules. There is a large community of users for these components and plenty of related technical information is available. As a consequence, these inexpensive components were found suitable for being used at different application domains, including research and education.

- Towards a Generic Architecture for Building Modular CPS as Applied to Mobile Robotics. I. Calvo, I. Etxeberria-Agiriano, M.A. Iñigo, P. González-Nalda; University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), Spain
Abstract: Until recently, Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) were largely isolated from corporate systems by means of proprietary protocols, which facilitated their protection against cyber-attacks under the principle of security through obscurity. However, the widespread adoption of the new communication technologies, such as the Internet protocols and wireless communications has changed this scenario.
In recent years there have been many evidences of cyber-attacks to IACS that exploit their vulnerabilities. Unfortunately, these attacks have increased significantly during the last five years, and quite clearly only the tip of the iceberg comes to the public knowledge.
The purpose of this article is twofold: (1) to raise awareness about the security vulnerabilities that most companies are facing at their IACS and (2) to propose a roadmap that seeks to guide designers and programmers in the new and complex world of industrial cyber-security.
