Within January 2019 all electricity customers in Norway will have to use smart meters. These smart meters will become part of the ”Avanserte Måle- og Styringssystemer” (Automatic Meter Systems - AMS), and include that users can have a better information on their electricity usage, a more accurate billing of their consumption and the opportunity for automatic controlling of the power consumption. Pilots have already been running at several places in Norway. Academia, Grid distributors, Industry, and Consumer Organisations have joined through the IoTSec.no initiative to discuss security and privacy related to the services and infrastructures in an AMS.
The future electricity network is based on components, which are state-of-the-art from some years back in time. As an example, the SCADA system consists of network interfaces, browser sessions..., which all can be hacked using standard vulnerabilities.
The electric grid is undergoing changes. Natural resources like sun and wind contribute to the production of energy.
Embedded Systems (ES) becomes increasingly popular in modern times. This popularity increases the importance of the security for these systems. The reliable evaluation of the ES`s security is considered as a crucial requirement for the enhancement of its security.
We have seen a variety of cities providing free wifi for their inhabitants. However, when providing the full Internet without authentication, you run the risk of criminal activities to happen using that free Wifi. When you run authentication, it makes access cumbersome. Thus, the idea is to provide free low-capacity Internet without authentication, which would allow you to only consume information (no file download, no gaming, no streaming/video). With the knowledge of risk assessment, the candidate should be able to evaluate the security of such an open access.
Previous work has established a Multi-Metrics (MM) Method for the analysis of measurable security and privacy. This MM approach is used in a.o. UNIK4750, and described more in IoTSec:T1.2. Some challenges of the method are related to the choice of metrics describing security functionality and their impact of the system. A further potential weakness is the dependency of system components, called "interconnection".
The Consumer Services of Norway (Forbrukerrådet) have established a report on privacy in Apps "App-Fail". In there they have found breach of privacy by apps. They identified a lack of "understandable privacy" as the main challenge.
