Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Industrial control systems (ICSs) are, at present, extremely vulnerable to cyber attack because they are homogenous and interconnected. Mitigating solutions are urgently required because systems breaches can feasibly lead to fatalities. In this paper we propose the deployment of permuted code onto Physically Unclonable Unique Processors in order to resist common cyber attacks. We present our proposal and explain how it would resist attacks from hostile agents.
