Evaluating Multi-layer Security Resistance to Adversarial Hacking Attacks on Industrial Internet of Things Devices

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

A primary concern of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) users is the threat of loss of valuable Intellectual Property (IP) through insecure operational device security. Whilst robust levels of security are technically possible, the approaches taken to ensure resistance to adversarial attacks can lack practicality in terms of implementation. IIoT devices use constrained hardware which can limit the extent to which data can be stored, processed or communicated and this can potentially increase the vulnerability of a system as additional IIoT devices are introduced. We explore the use of a multi-layer approach to security that produces an exhaust-trail of digital evidence at different levels, depending on the characteristics of the system attack. This approach is then evaluated with respect to common categories of system breach, and a set of characteristics and considerations for system designers is presented.
