SoS Musings #53 - True Randomness Boosts Security For most, if not all, cryptographic systems, random numbers play an essential role in determining the strength of the system's security and influence how difficult it is to attack the system. Randomness in cryptography prevents eavesdroppers from guessing the...
SoS Musings #50 - Moving Automotive Cybersecurity into the Fast Lane Connected and autonomous vehicles offer benefits, but they also introduce significant cybersecurity risks that can lead to the loss of life on the road. As vehicles increase in connectivity, they become more vulnerable to being hacked, manipulated,...
We’re incredibly excited to return to San Francisco in 2022! The theme for RSAC 2022 is Transform. Today, we are stronger and wiser as the world continues to rely more on data. The roles and responsibilities of cybersecurity professionals are constantly changing. There’s even more riding on the decisions and actions we...

  • Abstract: We propose an autoencoder based approach to anomaly detection in smart grid systems. Data collecting sensors within smart home systems are susceptible to many data corruption issues, such as malicious attacks or physical malfunctions. By applying machine learning to a smart home or grid, sensor... more
  • Abstract: Smart grids are being continually adopted as a replacement of the traditional power grid systems to ensure safe, efficient, and cost-effective power distribution. The smart grid is a heterogeneous communication network made up of various devices such as smart meters, automation, and emerging... more
  • Abstract: Smart substation and Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network (VANET) are two important applications of aggregate signature scheme. Due to the large number of data collection equipment in substation, it needs security authentication and integrity protection to transmit data. Similarly, in VANET, due to limited... more
  • Abstract: Looking at the Smart Grid as a Cyber - Physical system of great complexity, the paper synthesizes the main IT security issues that may arise. Security issues are seen from a hybrid point of view, combining theory of information with system theory. Smart Grid has changed dramatically over the past... more
  • Abstract: By leveraging the advancements in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), Smart Grid (SG) aims to modernize the traditional electric power grid towards efficient distribution and reliable management of energy in the electrical domain. The SG Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) contains... more
