Securing IoT-based Cyber-Physical Human Systems against Collaborative Attacks

Research Areas: Human Centric Security

Principal Investigator: Bharat Bhargava

Security issues in the IoT-based Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are exacerbated with human participation in CPHS due to the vulnerabilities in both the technologies and the human involvement. A holistic framework to mitigate security threats in the IoT-based Cyber-Physical Human Systems (CPHS) environment is presented to mitigate these issues. We have developed threat model involving human elements in the CPHS environment. Research questions, directions, and ideas with respect to securing IoT-based CPHS against collaborative attacks are presented.
