Seminar Type:  ITEE Research Seminar


It is important to assess the security posture of systems and networks in order to enhance the security of them. In this talk, I will briefly talk about the reason why we need to perform security analysis. I will then explain security measurements, metrics and models for assessing the cyber security and their related work in brief. I will then talk about how these measurement, metrics and graphical security models are used to evaluate the security of cyber-physical systems including Smart Grid, SCADA and Internet of Things.

Seminar duration: 45 mins
