Comprehensive study of DG network security models and their economics

The report gives and overview of security issues related to information protection and ownership related to future “virtual utilities”. In effect we have to protect and maintain Power Net Operations simultaneously as we protect and maintain Business Models related to value-added energy related services and products. To cope with this complexity we propose a hierarchical coordination model between energy management systems and business management systems.

To cope with security issues we propose a security engineering approach aiming at implementing and maintaining robust systems. Specifically, we have addressed issues related to secure execution of non-secure software. Furthermore, we have addressed the use of “honey nets” to identify the kind and art of threats to a specific system.

The task of defining a workable model of assessing security investments in a cost effective way have several inherent challenges. We have identified some of those challenges and also identified a general framework to that end.
