Article
The smart grid is envisioned to use a cyber-physical network paradigm to prevent failures from propagating along large-scale infrastructures, which is a primary cause for massive blackouts. Despite this promising vision, how effective cyber and physical interactions are against failure propagation is not yet fully investigated. In this paper, we us...

Although the smart gird is expected to eliminate cascading failures with the help of real-time system monitoring and control, it is yet unknown whether its underlying communication network is fast and reliable enough to achieve this goal. In this paper, we take an in-depth study on this issue by addressing three specific questions: (i) what is the...
Conference Paper
To secure a Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET), extensive studies have been conducted on developing authenti-cation infrastructures, and identifying misbehaving vehicles. The effectiveness of such efforts heavily depends on the underlying communication network. However, information exchange in the VANET can be severely delayed because of its highly-d...
Chapter
In many wireless networks (e.g., tactical military networks), the one-to-multiple communication model is pervasive due to commanding and control requirements in mission operations. In these networks, the roles of nodes are non-homogeneous; i.e., they are not equally important. This, however, opens a door for an adversary to target important nodes i...
Article
One of the most distinguished challenges in studying the aftermath of cyber attacks in smart grid lies in data-centric threats, which refer to cyber attacks aimed at gaining advantage or sabotage the infrastructure by manipulating the data exchanged in the underlying communication network. Even though such attacks are critical by itself in the info...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cascading failure is one of the most catastrophic events in power grid, which refers to large scale power system outage caused by the rampant spread of small scale system fault or even single device failure. Its disastrous result is expected to be mitigated in the scope of smart gird, in which communication enabled smart devices exchange critical i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Smart grid is a cyber-physical system which integrates communication networks into traditional power grid. This integration, however, makes the power grid susceptible to cyber attacks. One of the most distinguished challenges in studying the aftermath of cyber attacks in smart grid lies in data-centric threats. Even though such attacks are critical...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Smart grid is an emerging cyber-physical system which aims at making power systems more intelligent and efficient. One of the major attributes of smart grid is integration of distributed renewable power resources into the traditional power grid. As a result, traditional centralized control is not always effective in smart grid, and distributed cont...
