Abstract

Recent research has demonstrated the vulnerabilities of cyber physical microgrid to different rates of denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, which send internal requests to degrade the victim’s performance. However, the interaction between the attacks and the security of microgrid remains largely unknown. In this paper, we address two fundamental questions: (1) What is the impact of intermittent DoS (IDoS) attacks on the security of cyber physical microgrid and (2) how can we analyze the stability of the cyber physical microgrid under IDoS attacks? To tackle these problems, we firstly model the cyber physical microgrid system considering the IDoS attacks on the network server. Based on the model, the interaction between the cyber system and the physical system is analyzed. Then, the impacts of IDoS attacks on the security of the cyber physical microgrid system are studied. It shows that the attack may lead to the system level oscillation with the information variation during the attack period. Therefore, a risk assessment method is proposed to investigate the stability of the cyber physcial microgrid system under IDoS attacks. Lastly, the proposed methodology is verified by simulation results. View Full-Text
