[en] The paper presents a new approach for control security. Specifically, cyber-attacks on the controller are investigated by means of optimization techniques in order to determine the worst-case scenario. Then, a novel attack detector based on limit checking is introduced. The particularity of this detector is that no specific controller knowledge is necessary. Hence, the vulnerability of the detector can be reduced since no reconfiguration is required (limited accessibility). Finally, the paper shows that the effect of the attacks on the system can be significantly mitigated by applying proper optimal control laws.
