SYSTEMATIZATION OF CYBER THREATS TO LARGE-SCALE SYSTEMS WITH ADAPTIVE NETWORK TOPOLOGY
Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU)
Annotation: This paper focuses on the investigation and systematization of cyber threats to large-scale cyber-physical systems with dynamic network infrastructures. The proposed taxonomy provides a unified view of the specifics of such systems in terms of security, attacker targets, and TCP/IP network stack levels. Taken together, the systematization developed provides the basis for a new technology to protect complex dynamic systems by providing knowledge of which networking parameters need to be controlled to counteract certain classes of cyberthreats.
Keywords: ad hoc networks, MANET, wireless sensor networks, cyber threat, TCP/IP stack
