Recently, the protection of critical infrastructures became a core problem due to their importance in the everyday life and the attacks that may affect these systems. In order to ensure the safety and the efficient operation of such systems, a method together with an integrated framework is proposed to find a solution to the problem to deliver a system with cost-optimal operation by reconfiguration. Reconfiguration is possible via redundant structures of crucial resources while optimization aims at the minimization of the cost of the reconfiguration and the operational cost of the modified system. The method is illustrated by a SCADA control system case study.
