  2. Integration of complex and high-speed electronic components in the state of art electric power system enhances the need for improved security infrastructure and resilience against invasive and non-invasive attacks on the smart grid. A modern smart grid system integrates a variety of instruments and standards to achieve cost-effective and time-effective energy measurement and management. As the fundamental component in the smart grid, the smart meter supports real-time monitoring, automatic control, and high-speed communication along with power consumption recording. However, the wide use of smart meters also increases privacy and security concerns. In this paper, we demonstrate the vulnerability of side-channel attacks on secure communication in smart grids for software-based and hardware-based implementations.

  3. Abstract (WSN) using encrypted non-binary quantized data is studied. In a WSN, sensors transmit their observations to a fusion center through a wireless medium where the observations are susceptible to unauthorized eavesdropping. Encryption approaches for WSNs with fixed threshold binary quantization were previously explored. However, fixed threshold binary quantization limits parameter estimation to scalar parameters. In this paper, we propose a stochastic encryption approach for WSNs that can operate on non-binary quantized observations and has the capability for vector parameter estimation. We extend a binary stochastic encryption approach proposed previously, to a nonbinary generalized case. Sensor outputs are quantized using a quantizer with R + 1 levels, where R in {1.2. 3 ...}, encrypted by flipping them with certain flipping probabilities, and then transmitted. Optimal estimators using maximum-likelihood estimation are derived for both a legitimate fusion center (LFC) and a third party fusion center (TPFC) perspectives. We assume the TPFC is unaware of the encryption. Asymptotic analysis of the estimators is performed by deriving the Cramer-Rao lower bound for LFC estimation, and the asymptotic bias and variance for TPFC estimation. Numerical results validating the asymptotic analysis are presented.
