This article deals with the observer-based proportional-integral-derivative (PID) security control problem for a kind of linear discrete time-delay systems subject to cyber-attacks. The cyber-attacks, which include both denial-of-service and deception attacks, are allowed to be randomly occurring as regulated by two sequences of Bernoulli distributed random variables with certain probabilities. A novel observer-based PID controller is proposed such that the closed-loop system achieves the desired security level and the quadratic cost criterion (QCC) has an upper bound. Sufficient conditions are derived under which the exponentially mean-square input-to-state stability is guaranteed and the desired security level is then achieved. Subsequently, an upper bound of the QCC is obtained and the explicit expression of the desired PID controller is also parameterized. Finally, the validity of the developed design approach is verified via an illustrative example.
