Towards Suppressing Attacks on and Improving Resilience of Building Automation Systems - an Approach Exemplified Using BACnet

A new paper of us got accepted:

Sebastian Szlósarczyk, Steffen Wendzel, Jaspreet Kaur, Michael Meier, Frank Schubert: Towards Suppressing Attacks on and Improving Resilience of Building Automation Systems - an Approach Exemplified Using BACnet, in Proc. GI Sicherheit, Vienna, 2014.

Abstract:
Different concepts of IT security, like communication encryption, have already been applied to building automation systems (BAS). However, no research is available to mitigate malicious or incompliant network traffic in BAS. Both aspects are covered by traffic normalizers. We present the first work-in-progress research on traffic normalization for building automation networks exemplified using building automation control and network (BACnet) protocol.

New Paper: Next-Generation Home Automation Systems

A new paper was published in the context of the Usability Day X in Dornbirn.

T. Rist, S. Wendzel, M. Masoodian, E. André: Next-Generation Home Automation Systems, In Proc. Technik für Menschen im nächsten Jahrzehnt – Beiträge zum Usability Day X, Kempter, G. and Weidemann K.-H. (Eds.), Pabst Science Publishers, pp. 80-87, 2012.

Abstract:
While for many years home automation (HA) used to be a niche market for technically minded home owners, chances are that HA will be in widespread use in the near future. There are a number of reasons for this prediction, some of which are elaborated in this article. By means of selected scenarios from ongoing projects we will illustrate how recent developments are guiding the future of HA domain.

For completing the abstracts: Creating Awareness for Efficient Energy Use in Smart Homes

Here is my last scientific abstract posting for today. The paper was already presented in May at UDay IX.

Creating Awareness for Efficient Energy Use in Smart Homes

T. Rist, S. Wendzel, M. Masoodian, P. Monigatti, E. André
In Proc. Zusammenfassung der Beiträge zum Usability Day IX, Dornbirn, Austria, Feuerstein Gerhild, Ritter Walter (Hrsg.), pp. 162-168, 2011.

Abstract
Energy advisory services are designed to help habitants of smart homes to learn about their consumption patterns and eventually save and use energy more efficiently. In this paper we sketch some ideas for energy advisory services and present a layered software architecture that facilitates the integration of systems for power metering, home automation, and user interface technologies.
