“Smart” is slowly becoming a concept that infiltrates all branches of
everyday life and environments in which we are living. The “Smart
Industrial Environments” term can be coined to describe every aspect of
future-focused industrial environments, being it smart transportation
systems, smart vehicles, smart factories, smart grids, smart devices
(smartphones, wearables), smart services (e.g. individual just-in-time
production pipelines adjusted to the needs of the supply-chain) to smart
management of plants using information technology. In addition of being
a term that contains all these aspects, it also includes the
inter-connection of all these smart technologies, crossing any kind of
technological and political borders.

Smart Industrial Environments, developed under the support of a new
generation of cyber-physical systems, can realize information resources
in a highly concentrated manner. With the increase of information
sharing, this underpins the increasing importance of information and
network security.

Securing a Smart Industrial Environment is a great challenge as there
are many actors, complex systems, and interplays between them. One of
the key issues in a Smart Industrial Environments is to ensure users’
information security and privacy as well as security of systems that it
consists of. Therefore effective technical and policy measures shall be
derived to deal with the potential threats. Smart Industrial
Environments shall establish and perfect various cyber-physical system
security technology mechanisms, such as the establishment of remote
disaster recovery and backup, physical access control, cyber-physical
system emergency response in distributed heterogeneous environments,
cyber-physical system security monitoring and situational awareness as
well as other mechanisms. Smart Industrial Environments shall
particularly strengthen security awareness, promote the security
strategy and network legislation, strengthen security management and
adopt self-control based hardware and software among other methods and
measures. This will allow to build a Smart Industrial Environments on
the basis of security and reliability to support the stable operation
and the healthy development of cyber-physically supported societies.

This special section will focus on (but not limited to) the following
- Secure, dependable and trustable cyber-physical systems for the Smart
  Industrial Environments
- Electronic authentication and certification for the Smart Industrial
- System design methodologies for Cyber-Physical system security
- Security frameworks and solutions for Cyber-Physical systems
- Cyber-Physical system emergency response for the Smart Industrial
- Cyber-Physical system security capability evaluation for the Smart
  Industrial Environments
- Methodologies for modeling and assessment of cyber-physical security
  and privacy
- Privacy protection and trust management
- Sensing and control for attack detection and mitigation
- Secure and trustworthy demand-response management
- Sensor security supervision
- Cyber-physical security of energy storage and management systems
- Cyber-physical security of renewable energy systems (e.g., large-scale
  PV and wind farms)
- SCADA and industrial control system (ICS) system security
- Access control systems and policies for the Smart Industrial
- Privacy and data protection for the Smart Industrial Environments
- Intrusion detection/prevention solutions for cyber-physical systems
  for the Smart Industrial Environments
- Internet of Things Network Protocol Security
- Protection of legacy sub-systems in the Smart Industrial Environments
- Situational awareness and monitoring
- Security of smart system-interconnection
- Discussion of novel threat scenarios
- Forensics in the Smart Industrial Environments
- Teaching and education for the Smart Industrial Environments security
