Security Architecture for protecting Safety-critical Railway Infrastructure

Digitization, connectivity, and use of commercial-off-the-shelf technologies has reached Safety-critical areas such as the Railway sector. This creates new opportunities for attacks and makes it necessary to integrate IT Security measures into Railway command and control systems (CCS). However, the integration of Security mechanisms into a system certified according to the Railway Safety standard EN …
