New book release: "Security and Privacy in Cyber-Physical Systems"


We are very pleased to announce the publication of the book "Security and Privacy in Cyber-Physical Systems: Foundations, Principles, and Applications" (Wiley). For this book, the approved editorial duo Prof. Houbing Song (Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, USA) and Prof. Sabina Jeschke (Cybernetics Lab IMA/ZLW & IfU) employed the collaboration with Dr.-Ing. Glenn Fink (National Security Directorate, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA), cybersecurity expert. The assembled writing team consists of experts at the forefront of the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) revolution. They offer a thorough look at security and privacy, two of the most critical challenges faced by both research and development on CPS and professionals in information and communication technologies. It covers in depth the most important technical, social and legal issues and provides readers with key information to advance this exciting field. Cyber-Physical Systems are to be understood as "de facto equivalents" to the Internet of Things and the Industry 4.0 concept and thus systems consisting of the seamless integration of diverse and heterogeneous physical components. The resulting complex systems resemble organisms or organizations whose individual entities contribute autonomously to achieving common goals, such as in a production line or in car2car communication. Advances in CPS lead to high adaptability, scalability and robustness, as well as the implementation of new models in terms of security and usability. As the Internet has transformed information and communication paradigms between people, CPS technology has already begun to completely change the information and communication paradigms between humans and machines. This book supports researchers, experts, and students working on Cyber-Physical Systems at the interface of security and privacy.
