Cybersecurity for battery management systems in cyber-physical environments

Abstract: The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing technologies are expected to advance the battery management systems (BMSs) by fully utilizing IoT wireless network, powerful computing and unlimited cloud support, resulting in providing significant value in cost reduction, extended scalability, and greater visibility in the lithium-ion battery energy storage systems. However, IoT presents a growing threat from cyber-attacks as the IoT devices are always connected on networks. This project provides potential cyber-attack schemes and defense strategies to protect an IoT-enabled BMS systems from malicious cyber-attacks, ensuring the secure utilization of the next-generation BMSs in cyber-physical environments. To the authors’ best knowledge, this work is a first investigation of urgent challenge and provably effective attack protection approaches for the BMSs in cyber-physical environments.
