Password-Changing Protocol in Power Grid




Project Description

Deployment of data generation devices, such as sensors and smart meters, has been accelerating towards the vision of Smart Grid. With insufficiencies of the legacy power grid communications protocols, increased data generation and communications bring about new challenges in collecting the data securely, efficiently and in a scalable fashion. Power operators are increasingly concerned about the data collection and processing to ensure smooth and effective operations.

In this project our goal is to investigate a robust, scalable and automated password-changing protocol framework as well as a secure, and scalable data communications protocol for Smart Grid data collection.
