Motivation and Goals
In contrast to the traditional powergrid, the Smart Grid in enhanced by modern information and communication technology. Hence, it also implies new risks to data security and dataprotection.
For example, the integrity of control information that will be exchanged has to be ensured; risks to consumers’ privacy arise from detailed measurements of energy consumption.
