This work package, led by CRAT, is the foundation of the future ATENA systems and aims to:
- define the overall ATENA architecture and the requirements for developing the prototype components of the other technological Work packages.
- improve the cyber-physical security of already existing IACS by producing the “off-line” or “slow control loop” component of the ATENA architecture, i.e. the element in charge of:
- quantifying the current CI security level and, given the potential threats and countermeasures,
- deriving the optimal CI configuration to assure a desired, static, security level. This configuration will be given in input to the operators for implementation, as well as to the “on-line” security management elements to be used as starting point of their monitoring activities.
- definition of the ATENA Requirements & Specifications
- design of the ATENA architecture, including new paradigms and functionalities for IACS
- analysis of the CI vulnerability to faults and cyber-physical attacks
- definition of security metrics for IACS (based on Common Criteria)
- design & development of off-line control/ optimization strategies to improve IACS security and resilience.
