About this Research Topic
Advances in digitization that have occurred in recent years in the industry, combined with internet technologies and future-oriented technologies in the field of the so-called “smart” objects have led to a new and fundamental paradigm in industrial production.
Industry 4.0 includes technologies such as cyber-physical systems (CPS), smart industry and products, the internet of things (IoT), the cloud (shared storage platforms that can be accessed from any application), 3D printing, robotics (a new machine-person relationship through collaborative robotics) or cybersecurity.
The connected world goes from small to large applications in all fields such as smart cities, smart grids, smart transportation, etc. Industry security and cryptographic protocols to assure and facilitate such security are essential requirements for providing security to connected devices and networks. Ensuring the information security of cyber-physical systems is one of the most complex problems in a wide range of defenses against cyber-attacks.
The goal of this Research Topic is to analyze and develop an in-deep analysis of existing cryptographic protocols to assure industry security and to propose new algorithms to guarantee information authentication, confidentiality, integrity and authenticity, and also privacy protection. The study of security measures and countermeasures against possible attackers, together with the detection of those attacks will also be treated here.
Keywords: malware dissemination, cryptographic protocols, cybersecurity, advanced critical infrastructure, security in cyber-physical systems
