“Utility smart meters and infrastructure – security and privacy implications”

Utility companies around the world are rapidly embracing wireless smart meters as part of their energy and resource conservation programs. Smart meters significantly speed up the time it takes utility companies to measure the consumption of electricity, water and gas and identify critical service disruptions. Coupled with smart in-home devices, smart meters allow consumers to see how much energy they are using in real time and make conscious decisions to use appliances during non-peak times when energy can be less costly. Millions of smart meters are now being deployed and the use of smart meters and infrastructure present new security and privacy challenges. It’s now theoretically possible to use smart meter data to determine how many people live at a particular address, the daily habits of these people and even what time of day they take showers or baths. Privacy protection and proper use of the data resulting from smart meters will affect the overall success of smart meter programs as consumers need to be assured that their data will be properly protected and not be used for unrestricted marketing. From a security perspective, the integrity of the meter data will be essential for proper billing and positive identification of all of the individual meters will guard against data manipulation or masquerading as an authorized device to negatively impact the utility infrastructure. This presentation will present some of the security and privacy challenges of smart meter programs and offer some practices to support a successful smart meter program.
