CS4R workshops announcement in European Robotics Forum 2020

Hey folk roboticists,

Are you planning to be in Málaga (Spain) for European Robotics Forum from 3r March on? If so, do not miss Cyber Security for Robotics (CS4R) workshops I and II happening on 3rd March at 14 - 15:30 pm and 16:15- 17:45 respectively. Link to both workshop webpages:

The next generation of robots will be connected, either to each other or the Internet, and that comes with huge risks in terms of cyber security.

CS4R part I
It will deal with Cybersecurity challenges in Robotics and will provide a deep insight and discussion about potential cyber-risks the robotics ecosystem is facing. There will be an roundtable with open Q&A to the public, also. Putting the elephant in the room.

Agenda:

  • Opening 00:00-05:00 (Endika, Alias Robotics)
  • Talk 1 : Current security threat landscape in robotics, Víctor Mayoral
  • Talk 2 : MQ intrusion via mobile, results from the IoT4CPS project. Mario Drobics, AIT
  • Talk 3 : Robotics honeypots: Learning from robot hackers. Francisco Lera, University of León
  • Talk 4 : Attacking mobile robot bases Bernhard Dieber, Joanneum Research
  • Discussion - Debate & Interactive Workshop

CS4R part II
The second part of the afternoon will be focusing towards approaches to providing cybersecurity for robotics, by looking into the responsibility of all involved in the robotics value chain. There will be a initial debate with open Q&A to the public, also.

Agenda:

  • Introduction: 00:00-05:00 (Endika, Ulrich)
  • Debate : Researchers, Manufacturers, Integrators, Security Technology providers, End Users and Operators : why standalones and alone awareness are not the answer
    • shared roles & responsibilities, risk based approach (what to put in an RFP?)
    • Industry Value chain definition
    • Raising the awareness of cybersecurity in robotics, conclusions on CSFR19, Bilbao
    • Cybersecurity by design, Vulnerabilities and Mitigation Strategies,
    • Standardization & Responsible Disclosure
  • Talk 2 : Security in ROS & ROS 2 robot setups, Víctor Mayoral Vilches, Alias Robotics
  • Talk 3 : SecDevOps & Agile Development, Stephen de Vries, ContinuumSecurity
  • Talk 3 : Access Control Models with Applications to Robotics, Stefan Rass, University of Klagenfurt (AAU)
  • Talk 4 : Embedded Security, Stefano Alberico, Skudo
  • Closing & Robot Security Survey, Endika Gil Uriarte, Alias Robotics

If you plan to be around or for more info, ping me. For those of you who cannot attend, we’ll do our best to bring the material and discussion back to Discourse.

Very best,

A small update on the workshops conducted and links to the material we recorded. Quality is not outstanding since we did a manual recording ourselves but we’ve heard it’s manageable. Input for future improvements is very welcome though!

Enjoy!


CS4R-I

Talk 1: Current security threat landscape in robotics

05:00-20:00

Víctor Mayoral Vilches, Alias Robotics

Following an offensive approach, Víctor shares state-of-the-art tools for robot cybersecurity research and how his team is pentesting robots and robotic systems around the world while helping companies deliver more cyber-secure solutions.

CS4R-II

Talk 1: Security in ROS & ROS 2 robot setups

35:00-45:00

Víctor Mayoral Vilches, ALIAS ROBOTICS

Víctor shares some of the latest developments in securing ROS and ROS2. He discusses how industrial robots require Zero Trust network architectures and will introduce RIS, (Robot Immune System) an EPP for Industrial robots that empowers this reality.

Talk 2: Access control Models with application to robotics

60:00-75:00

Stefan Rass, ALPEN ANDRIA UNIVERSITY

Dr. Stefan Rass an expert in the security field discussed why access control is critical in robotics. Rass leverages on a comparative overview of the different methods in use, such as discretionary, mandatory, role-based, etc. and models like Bell-LaPadula.

Hey, just noting for the record that CS4R at ERF counted on quite a number of attendees that reflects how the security topic is becoming an interesting one for the community. Let’s hope all your contributions keep it up and cope with the expectations.

If you have any further questions on CS4R, ping me anytime!

Thanks for organizing the sessions and the update!

The links for “Security in ROS & ROS 2 robot setups” seem to still be invalid: the one on the alias robotics website points to https://aliasrobotics.com/ and the one on discourse points to http://127.0.0.1/

Right! I’ve applied some fixes to the post above and will send them also to the Alias Robotics website as well. Can you retry and let me know if I still missed something?

Works perfectly now :+1:
