Nowadays, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) is an emerging area that has gained a lot of attention from academia and industry. CPSs integrate computation and communication capabilities with physical processes in order to monitor and control them efficiently. The monitoring of the physical processes is a fundamental CPS function and in modern CPSs it is based on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) due to their advantages in terms of connectivity, flexibility and scalability. Nevertheless, WSNs are characterized by limitations that can affect the advancement of CPSs. To address these limitations, the application of Network Coding technology in WSNs can be a promising solution since it can provide significant benefits including improved network capacity and robustness among others. However, the Network Coding-enabled WSNs are vulnerable to various types of attacks that can compromise the security of the CPSs that integrate them. Based on that and the fact that the security is critical factor for the success of CPSs, we steer our focus on the mitigation of these types of attacks. In particular, we intend to provide a foundation for organizing research efforts towards the deployment of the appropriate countermeasures against attacks targeting Network Coding-enabled WSNs integrated in CPSs.
