This study addresses the resilient finite-time distributed event-triggered (ET) consensus control of multi-agent systems (MASs) with multiple cyber-attacks, such as replay, deception, and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. For the first attempt, a model is proposed for multiple cyber-attacks on MASs under DoS, deception, and replay attacks, that occur stochastically in a unified framework. Furthermore, an appropriate distributed ET consensus control mechanism is proposed to handle the unwanted traffic in the network communication channel. This scheme determines whether or not the signal can be transmitted to each agent in MASs. Sufficient conditions for the consensus of MASs are derived using Lyapunov stability theory and linear matrix inequalities (LMIs), which ensure the exponentially mean-square finite-time stability. On the basis of the obtained conditions, the explicit expressions of the consensus control gain matrix and trigger parameter matrices are given. Eventually, simulation results are provided to verify the proposed theoretical results.
