Canito, A., Aleid, K., Praca, I., Corchado, J., & Marreiros, G. (2020). An ontology to promote interoperability between cyber-physical security systems in critical infrastructures. 2020 IEEE 6th International Conference on Computer and Communications (ICCC), Computer and Communications (ICCC), 2020 IEEE 6th International Conference On, 553–560. https://doi.org/10.1109/ICCC51575.2020.9345163 In this journal article, the authors explore the current status and activities of cybersecurity as a basis for the development process and propose an integrated ontology for combined cyber and physical security. Several evaluation methods to be applied to the resulting ontology to check its usefulness in achieving the interoperability goal are suggested.
