Benefits and Needs for an Integrated Approach to Cyber–Physical Security for Transportation

Physical and cyber security mechanisms protect people and infrastructure assets for transportation from hazards, both natural and human-initiated. Both physical and cyber security mechanisms are diverse in size, function, deployment, and cost, and have proliferated. Since they are often colocated and functionally interdependent they need to be compatible. These physical and cyber mechanisms accomplish multiple security functions and reinforce one another for cost savings and conflict avoidance. First, connections between cyber and physical systems are presented in the context of interdependencies and resilience. Second, patterns and trends in cyber-attacks on transportation set the stage for typologies for both physical and cyber systems with illustrative cases. Third, social and economic effects and organizational arrangements are introduced to begin shaping solutions. Finally, conclusions are drawn as lessons learned.
