Securing the Smart Grid discusses the features of the smart grid, particularly its strengths and weaknesses, to better understand threats and attacks, and to prevent insecure deployments of smart grid technologies. A smart grid is a modernized electric grid that uses information and communications technology to be able to process information, such as the behaviors of suppliers and consumers. The book discusses different infrastructures in a smart grid, such as the automatic metering infrastructure (AMI). It also discusses the controls that consumers, device manufacturers, and utility companies can use to minimize the risk associated with the smart grid. It explains the smart grid components in detail so readers can understand how the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of these components can be secured or compromised. This book will be a valuable reference for readers who secure the networks of smart grid deployments, as well as consumers who use smart grid devices. Details how old and new hacking techniques can be used against the grid and how to defend against them Discusses current security initiatives and how they fall short of what is needed Find out how hackers can use the new infrastructure against itself

Many people think of the Smart Grid as a power distribution group built on advanced smart metering—but that’s just one aspect of a much larger and more complex system. The "Smart Grid" requires new technologies throughout energy generation, transmission and distribution, and even the homes and businesses being served by the grid. This also represents new information paths between these new systems and services, all of which represents risk, requiring a more thorough approach to where and how cyber security controls are implemented. This insight provides a detailed architecture of the entire Smart Grid, with recommended cyber security measures for everything from the supply chain to the consumer. Discover the potential of the Smart Grid Learn in depth about its systems See its vulnerabilities and how best to protect it

The engineering, deployment and security of the future smart grid will be an enormous project requiring the consensus of many stakeholders with different views on the security and privacy requirements, not to mention methods and solutions. The fragmentation of research agendas and proposed approaches or solutions for securing the future smart grid becomes apparent observing the results from different projects, standards, committees, etc, in different countries. The different approaches and views of the papers in this collection also witness this fragmentation. This book contains three full-paper length invited papers and 7 corrected and extended papers from the First International Workshop on Smart Grid Security, SmartGridSec 2012, which brought together researchers from different communities from academia and industry in the area of securing the Future Smart Grid and was held in Berlin, Germany, on December 3, 2012.

Message authentication has vital significance for dynamic microgrid partition in smart grid. However, current message authentication protocols based on “public key infrastructure” are too complicated to be deployed in smart grid and lack group information management function. On the other hand, group information management protocols based on “logic key hierarchy” need to broadcast a lot of messages during microgrid partition processes, resulting in high communication costs. To address these issues, we present a novel identity-based message authentication protocol for dynamic microgrid partition called securing dynamic microgrid partition. Similar to the protocols of this field, securing dynamic microgrid partition can provide message authentication and group information management functions. However, compared to other well-known approaches, securing dynamic microgrid partition uses Bloom filter for managing group information, which can reduce the communication cost of logic key hierarchy significantly. Moreover, securing dynamic microgrid partition uses Lagrange interpolation for designing new identity-based signing and verification algorithms, which is simple to be deployed in smart grid environment and much more efficient than current identity-based protocols. Experimental results show that the proposed approach is feasible for real-world applications.

In conjunction with the rapid growth in adopting smart devices, the smart cities concept has been raised simultaneously in many modern societies. A smart grid is an essential part of any smart city as both consumers and power utility companies benefit from the features provided by the power grid. In addition to advanced features presented by smart grids, there may also be a risk when the grids are exposed to malicious acts such as security attacks performed by terrorists. Many vendors develop smart meters and at the same time, many researchers have proposed various supported security systems, however, no security measures were considered in most of those designs. This book presents a security study for smart metering systems with a prototype implementation for future works.

The worldwide reach of the Internet allows malicious cyber criminals to coordinate and launch attacks on both cyber and cyber-physical infrastructure from anywhere in the world. This purpose of this handbook is to introduce the theoretical foundations and practical solution techniques for securing critical cyber and physical infrastructures as well as their underlying computing and communication architectures and systems. Examples of such infrastructures include utility networks (e.g., electrical power grids), ground transportation systems (automotives, roads, bridges and tunnels), airports and air traffic control systems, wired and wireless communication and sensor networks, systems for storing and distributing water and food supplies, medical and healthcare delivery systems, as well as financial, banking and commercial transaction assets. The handbook focus mostly on the scientific foundations and engineering techniques – while also addressing the proper integration of policies and access control mechanisms, for example, how human-developed policies can be properly enforced by an automated system. Addresses the technical challenges facing design of secure infrastructures by providing examples of problems and solutions from a wide variety of internal and external attack scenarios Includes contributions from leading researchers and practitioners in relevant application areas such as smart power grid, intelligent transportation systems, healthcare industry and so on Loaded with examples of real world problems and pathways to solutions utilizing specific tools and techniques described in detail throughout

Securing smart grid [SG] is an essential part of power operations. In last few years, cyber security of SG has emerged as a critical issue because of the exponential growth in number of devices added in communication network. Such a heavy dependence on new technologies make SG to surrender in front of potential vulnerabilities associated with the new components which are not built with security in mind. The complexity and heterogeneity of components introduce new challenges in terms of security and privacy. With the demand of constant availability of power and complex interaction between components, experts possess tedious task to find vulnerabilities and threats in the communication network. Weakness in cyber security of power system is also threatening for the physical security as both are deeply integrated with each other. With the complex networking of SG, it is almost impossible to secure every single node. Therefore, communication network needs constant monitoring and analysis of traffic to detect abnormal activities. To conquer security challenges, various techniques have been implemented in every aspect of SG, from implementing new architecture to upgrading control center, and deploying new secure components in Advanced Metering Infrastructure [AMI].To contribute into security of SG, we present a research which deals with threats in power systems and analyzes the impacts of these threats on control center, advanced metering infrastructure and customers. Before predicting the impact, simulated model is implemented using network simulator NS3. A model represents the communication network consist of nodes in Control Center and AMI, where substation node is transmitting data to control center node. The results of simulation are captured in the pcap files which can be analyze to conclude smooth working of smart grid.
