Securing Smart Grid Devices Using Virtualization to Protect the Grid
Energy providers and governments worldwide are looking for ways to upgrade their energy systems. A big part of these efforts is the smart grid concept, which introduces networking and automation across the electrical system. The smart grid can give consumers and suppliers alike better monitoring and control of power consumption, leading to increased reliability, higher efficiency, and lower costs. However, computerization and connectivity bring with them the threat of security breaches and attacks.
