We study security of dynamical systems against malicious attacks on its sensor measurements and/or actuator inputs. In particular, we apply ideas from error control coding, as well as system theory, to produce methods for detection and automatic correction in the presence of malicious attacks. These methods seek to exploit the redundancy that is inherent in the system. This is an important topic in the context of the Internet of Things as wireless communication between devices is extremely prone to malicious attacks.
