Applied Resiliency for More Trustworthy Grid Operation (ARMORE)



  • Fall 2014-Spring 2017

Project Description

The objective of this project is to develop a distributed peer-based framework to provide secure information exchange internally in critical infrastructure to increase security, resiliency, and internal visibility of grid operation. Through leveraging and interfacing with core components of the successful Secure Information Exchange Gateway (SIEGate) platform, this project will significantly improve power system information technology security by augmenting current edge-perimeter security practices with a system that pushes secure, real-time communication capabilities deeper into utility critical networks, including substations. This approach will enable the high-speed and secure exchange of information on a peer-to-peer basis.
