  • Cybersecurity in Manufacturing Webinar - November 20th at 11:00am EST

    Dear All,

    We are pleased to invite you to ASME CIE division’s Cybersecurity in Manufacturing Webinar on November 20th at 11:00am – 12:30pm EST.

    The focus of this month’s webinar will be on Additive Manufacturing security. The webinar includes two talks:

    1. Additive Manufacturing Security: Welcome to the New Frontier by Dr. Mark Yampolskiy, Associate Professor of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE) at Auburn University.
    2. Manufacturing Security: Yes, Mechanical Engineers can Protect Designs and Intellectual Property by Dr. Nikhil Gupta, Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at New York University.

    The meeting details, along with abstracts and speaker bios are included below.

    Additive Manufacturing Security: Welcome to the New Frontier

    Abstract: Additive Manufacturing (AM), often referred to as 3D printing, is a rapidly growing multibillion-dollar industry. AM is increasingly used to manufacture functional parts, including components of safety critical systems. However, its high degree on computerization and reliance on digital design files makes AM susceptible to a variety of cyber and cyber-physical attacks. This talk will provide an introduction in AM Security, a new and highly inter-disciplinary field of research. On the example of several selected attacks, this talk will outline novel challenges that the security of this manufacturing technology faces. While cyber-security is a necessary component of AM Security, numerous characteristic aspects of this manufacturing technology require special considerations. Fortunately, novel approaches have emerged that address some of the identified security threats. This talk will conclude with a summary of current state of the field and point out limitations that must be addressed by the research community in the future.

    Speaker Bio: Dr. Mark Yampolskiy is an Associate Professor at Auburn University, department of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE). He is also an Affiliated Faculty with Auburn Cyber Research Center (ACRC) and National Center for Additive Manufacturing Excellence (NCAME). He was among the pioneers and is one of the leading experts in the field of Additive Manufacturing Security. His research interests include the cyber-physical means of attack and defense in AM.


    Manufacturing Security: Yes, Mechanical Engineers can Protect Designs and Intellectual Property

    Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM), also called 3D printing, is now used for manufacturing parts that have been deployed in operational aerospace systems. AM is a completely digital system until the part is manufactured on a 3D printer. The cyber-physical nature of the process chain exposes it to cybersecurity risks that include sabotage, intellectual property theft and counterfeiting. Cybersecurity methods such as access control, password protection and encryption can be applied to design files but these methods do not protect against production of high quality parts from stolen files and reverse engineering. Security should be used as a design constraint like any other product performance metric. This talk will introduce the design based security paradigm with examples such as embedded features in the CAD models that do not allow printing high quality parts by unauthorized users, anti-reverse engineering methods and genuine product identification methods. The fundamentally different process chain of AM compared to the traditional manufacturing methods requires a new design thinking that can lead to high quality products with security embedded in the design or the physical product.

    Speaker Bio: Dr. Nikhil Gupta is a professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at New York University. He is affiliated with NYU Center for Cybersecurity. His research program is focused on additive manufacturing, including security and manufacturability of products, machine learning methods for materials characterization and lightweight composite materials. Dr. Gupta’s research directions on additive manufacturing security are supported by National Science Foundation, SecureAmerica Institute as well as industry. He is an author of over 205 journal papers and book chapters, inventor of 4 US patents and serves on the editorial board of journals including Composites Part B, Materials Performance and Characterization and Materials Science and Engineering A.
