2021 MAR 29 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Engineering Daily News -- Current study results on Engineering have been published. According to news originating from Manhattan, Kansas, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “Recent advances in the cyber-physical smart grid (CPSG) have enabled a broad range of new devices based on the information and communication technology (ICT). However, these ICT-enabled devices are susceptible to a growing threat of cyber-physical attacks.”

Financial supporters for this research include National Science Foundation (NSF), United States Department of Energy (DOE).

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Kansas State University, “This paper performs a thorough review of the state-of-the-art cyber-physical security of the smart grid. By focusing on the physical layer of the CPSG, this paper provides an abstracted and unified state-space model, in which cyber-physical attack and defense models can be effectively generalized. The existing cyber-physical attacks are categorized in terms of their target components. We then discuss several operational and informational defense approaches that present the current state-of-the-art in the field, including moving target defense, watermarking, and data-driven approaches.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “Finally, we discuss challenges and future opportunities associated with the smart grid cyber-physical security.”
