Securing the Smart Grid

Smart utility grids have, for a variety of reasons such as their size and accessibility, a raised susceptibility to cyber attacks. Such attacks can destroy national critical infrastructure and the need for smart grid cyber security is therefore imperative. Our research aims in this field could comprise: smart grid requirements gathering methodology; protection technologies for components of smart grids such as smart meters; secure technologies for communications in smart grids; integration of smart grids with home area networks (HAN) that provides for the privacy and security of collected information; development of smart grid standards.

More information will follow.
