Application of Cyber Security Techniques in the Protection of Efficient Cyber-Physical Energy Generation Systems

 This project is called, "Application of Cyber Security Techniques in the Protection of Efficient Cyber-Physical Energy Generation Systems." In this project, we designed and developed a security monitoring and analysis framework for control systems and smart grid technologies. This system is designed to enhance resiliency of the system by integrating traditional computer security and safety engineering techniques. The goal is to integrate the monitoring and analysis of IP network traffic, as well as serial communications and physical constraints within a single intrusion detection system (IDS) framework and provide capabilities for determining the physical safety of system operations by simultaneously examining behavior at multiple hierarchical layers and contexts.

This project was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy's Cybersecurity for Energy Delivery Systems (CEDS) program.
