Identity-based cryptography (IBC) based key management system (KMS) for industrial control systems (ICS)

Abstract : Often considered as the brain of an industrial process, Industrial control systems are presented as the vital part of today's critical infrastructure due to their crucial role in process control and monitoring. Any failure or error in the system will have a considerable damage. Their openness to the internet world raises the risk related to cyber-attacks. Therefore, it's necessary to consider cyber security challenges while designing an ICS in order to provide security services such as authentication, integrity, access control and secure communication channels. To implement such services, it's necessary to provide an efficient key management system (KMS) as an infrastructure for all cryptographic operations, while preserving the functional characteristics of ICS. In this paper we will analyze existing KMS and their suitability for ICS, then we propose a new KMS based on Identity Based Cryptography (IBC) as a better alternative to traditional KMS. In our proposal, we consider solving two security problems in IBC which brings it up to be more suitable for ICS.
