Agent-based Protection of Event-based Smart Meters

This article presents a work performed in the context of SUCCESS (Energy) Horizon-2020 project. The authors discuss about information protection in real-time Energy Management Systems of consumer-centered Smart Grid with renewable energy. The threat is represented by an attacker that injects packets aimed to mislead the Energy Management System. Authors propose a Security Agent-based approach that bridges between the Metering- and the Control sub-systems.
