Generally speaking, resilience is the ability of a system to provide an acceptable level of service even in the face of faults and challenges to normal operation. In this chapter, focus is on two specific categories of challenges, namely: i) cyberattacks, and ii) technology changes.

Abstract

Generally speaking, resilience is the ability of a system to provide an acceptable level of service even in the face of faults and challenges to normal operation. In this chapter, focus is on two specific categories of challenges, namely: i) cyberattacks, and ii) technology changes. We present a number of resilience enhancing techniques, which are suitable for a wide variety of current and future Critical Infrastructures (CIs). We do so in a practice-oriented view, and with respect to some of the most widely used and/or emerging network technologies for building CIs, specifically: satellite networks, IP based systems, and Wireless Sensor Networks. The techniques have been implemented in a distributed architecture, which integrates four main functions: monitoring, detection, diagnosis, and remediation. The ideas and results presented in this chapter are part of the lessons we have learned in INTERSECTION and INSPIRE, two FP7 projects we have been involved in. Additional information is available on the web sites of the projects.
