In this work, we discuss modeling of cyber-physical attacks and their effects on the hydraulic processes of water networks. In particular, we introduce our software epanetCPA, that allows users to quickly develop plausible attack scenarios and assess the hydraulic response of the system. epanetCPA is an open-source MATLABR toolbox, and leverages EPANET for both demand-driven and pressuredriven analysis. The toolbox extends EPANET's features to include a cyber layer of sensors, actuators, controllers, and a centralized SCADA system. The nodes of the cyber network and the attack scenarios to be simulated are defined in an additional input file, which has to be provided along with the EPANET input file describing the physical network. epanetCPA implements a wide range of cyberphysical threats such as denial-of-service of resources, manipulation of sensor readings, as well as eavesdropping, interruption and alteration of the communications between the cyber components.
