Researchers from BEIA and UPRC conducted a research entitled “Secure and Interoperable Platform for Smart GRID Applications” which is a joint scientific publication and belongs to the Special Issue: State-of-the-Art Sensors Technology in Romania 2021. The scientific paper was published in Sensors journal with an impact factor of 3.576.
The publication describes the recent advancements in information and communication technologies (ICT) where have improve the power grid, leading to what is known as the smart grid, which, as part of a critical economic and social infrastructure, is vulnerable to security threats from the use of ICT and new emerging vulnerabilities and privacy issues.
Furthermore, addresses how access control can be applied without disrupting the power grid’s functioning while also properly maintaining the security, scalability, and interoperability of the smart grid.
The outcome of the research aims to develop a novel, hierarchical architecture composed of different licensing entities that manage access to resources within the network infrastructure.
The focus of the Special Issue is on advanced IoT cybersecurity technologies that not only take into account the per-device security but also their grid-interconnected network as a whole towards establishing “communities of trust”.
