Cyber Security, Reliability and Safety of Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks

Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity

Abstract: The recent advances in Cyber Physical Systems (CPSs), Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) and the Internet of Things (IoT) have gained high attention in the industrial sector. During the last few years, the concept was tailored to fulfill the stringent requirements of the industrial market in the form of the fourth industrial revolution or “Industry 4.0”. Many manufacturers in the Middle East countries are gradually adopting the concept of industrial WSN in their Smart Fields as they realized the advantages of WSN over the conventional wired sensors’ approach. This technical paper addresses the employment of different industrial WSN standards in the industrial control applications from cost, Quality of Service (QoS), scalability, safety and security perspectives.
