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 รข?? 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.
