Workshop on Cybersecurity at Mälardalen University

April 27, 2022 @ 13:00 - 17:00

Welcome to a Software Center workshop on Cyber-Security at Mälardalen University, April 27, Omega Conference Room, (and online)

At the Software Center/MDU workshop we will bring together experts from academia and industry to talk about the problems, challenges, and solutions in the domain of cybersecurity.

The workshop is an open hybrid event and will take place in the Omega Conference Room at Mälardalen University, Västerås (online participation is also possible). Necessary information will be distributed after registration.

16:30 Soroush Bateni (U. of Texas, Dallas, USA): Predictable Coordination for Safety-Critical Real-Time Systems

16:55 Closing

At the workshop, Jan Bosch (Chalmers) talks about how digitalization makes cybersecurity important; and he will highlight cases from the 17 member companies of Software Center (www.software-center.se). Marjan Sirjani (MDU) talks about cybersecurity, safety, and resilience and the ongoing research in some of the projects on cybersecurity at MDU.

There will be talks on Automotive Cybersecurity, Nasser Nowdehi (Volvo Cars) explores the current and future state of automotive cybersecurity and its challenges; Stefan Marksteiner (AVL/AT) talks about automated cybersecurity testing, and Barbara Gallina (MDU) talks about the automotive standards and regulations from a multi-concern perspective.

Kim Hyldgaard (Grundfos) explains how in a supply chain attack it is difficult to deal with the vast attack surface, and he will look at some of the challenges and a few mitigating initiatives. Sheela Hariharan and Talvén Jarmo (VCE) will talk about Cybersecurity in Construction Machinery. Fereidoun Moradi (MDU) will explain how a tiny digital twin can improve attack detection at runtime and help in cyber-resilience.

Edward Lee (UC Berkeley) talks about consistency and availability in cyber-physical systems and how that affects safety. Soroush Bateni (UTD) uses an open-source full-stack autonomous driving software, Autoware.Auto 1.0, which relies on ROS 2 to demonstrate how the arbitrary ordering in the handling of messages (caused by communication timing not handled properly by the ROS 2 framework) can be a significant problem. He presents an alternative framework for real-time distributed embedded systems.
