Special Issue in Energies: Data Mining in Smart Grids
This Special Issue is intended to present feature and scholarly papers that address some of the diverse array of topics related to Smart Grid Cyber Security. These topics include, but are not limited to, secure and resilient communication and control architectures, secure smart metering, cryptography, key management, authorization and access control, security threat and vulnerability assessment and measurement, cyber-physical security information and event management, trust and privacy, security design and verification tools, and simulation and performance analysis of security operations and services. Technological advances in all these areas have profoundly affected the realization of the resilient and secure communications and information management that are essential to all aspects of the Smart Grid. We invite scientists and researchers from all fields of electronics to submit papers for this important Special Issue of “Smart Grid Cyber Security”. Case studies, reviews, and research papers on all topics related to cyber security issues of smart grids are invited.
