Abstract:
The study of critical infrastructure systems organization and behavior has drawn great attention in the recent years. This is in part due to their great influence on the ordinary life of every citizen. In this paper, we study critical infrastructures' characteristics and propose a reference model based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML). This reference model attempts to provide suitable means for the task of modeling an infrastructure system through offering five major metamodels. We introduce each of these metamodels and explain how it is possible to integrate them into a unique representation to characterize various aspects of an infrastructure system. Based on the metamodels of UML-CI, infrastructure system knowledge bases can be built to aid the process of infrastructure system modeling, profiling, and management.
