Security aspects of Internet of Things aided smart grids: A bibliometric survey

Security aspects of Internet of Things aided smart grids: A bibliometric survey Abstract: The integration of sensors and communication technology in power systems, known as the smart grid, is an emerging topic in science and technology. One of the critical issues in the smart grid is its increased vulnerability to cyber-threats. As such, various types […]

Non-interactive zero knowledge proofs for the authentication of IoT devices in reduced connectivity environments

Non-interactive zero knowledge proofs for the authentication of IoT devices in reduced connectivity environments Abstract: Current authentication protocols seek to establish authenticated sessions over insecure channels while maintaining a small footprint considering the energy consumption and computational overheads. Traditional authentication schemes must store a form of authentication data on the devices, putting this data at […]

A Deep and Scalable Unsupervised Machine Learning System for Cyber-Attack Detection in Large-Scale Smart Grids

A Deep and Scalable Unsupervised Machine Learning System for Cyber-Attack Detection in Large-Scale Smart Grids Abstract: Smart grid technology increases reliability, security, and efficiency of the electrical grids. However, its strong dependencies on digital communication technology bring up new vulnerabilities that need to be considered for efficient and reliable power distribution. In this paper, an […]

P4-to-blockchain: A secure blockchain-enabled packet parser for software defined networking

P4-to-blockchain: A secure blockchain-enabled packet parser for software defined networking Abstract: Security is one of the most challenging issues in software defined networking (SDN), and causes include the inability to detect the contents of the packets. In addition, file transferring to SDN is a potential attack vector that can be exploited at the network level. […]
