The Smart Grid is an integrated systems solution where the electrical infrastructure and the information infrastructure are combined to increase energy efficiency and operational productivity, enabling us to meet the current and future energy needs.Smart Grid wil enable to integrate traditional energy sources along with the renewable energy, deliver the energy efficiently and empower the consumer in making energy choices.
The challenges associated with the electrical infrastructure as well as information infrastructures are well documented. One of the key challenges is cyber security, due to the nature of the integration and interconnectedness of various tools, hardware, software and other systems, via the Internet.
In this review, we present a framework for cyber security for the Smart Grid. The interdependency causes one to have a fully trusted subsystems, which in practical terms in impossible to achieve. Hence, the presented framework will guide on how to assure the Smart Grid is secure enough and the intrusion detection from unreliable devices is captured or mitigated in a shortest possible time.
