Security of the Distributed Model Predictive Control

Abstract : In this paper, we explore the security of a distributed model predictive control (DMPC) scheme. A global system is decomposed into several local subsystems which share a common resource. For instance a heating problem among several rooms with a limited amount of power. Each subsystem owns a model predictive control (MPC) controller which cooperates and works iteratively with all the other controllers in order to reach the system's objective. Here, we focus on the security of such a system. Indeed, we report that a user could disturb the DMPC through several attacks in order to destabilize the resource distribution. Hence, examples of cheating protocols and counter-cheat ideas are presented and discussed.
