Trends in substation automation have converged upon a common communications architecture with the goal of having interoperability between a variety of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) found in the substation.? The network architecture currently being adopted worldwide by utilities and IED vendors alike utilizes a common underlying technology — Ethernet.? With the growth of Smart Grid and utility adoption of IEC 61850, secure Ethernet communication is critical.? However, with increased interconnection of networks come cyber security vulnerabilities previously non-existent with isolated SCADA networks.
This presentation will briefly cover a wide array of network security topics, ranging from the definitions of basic network security terms to the application of multi-layered security solutions in the utility and industrial settings.? Topics of current interest will include NERC CIP requirements, Security Vulnerabilities, and Security Strategies for Your Network.
