Cryptography Measures for HMI in Smart Grids

Presented by: Dr. Shashikant Bakre

Ensuring security is much more difficult in smart grids as compared to the conventional girds as these are extensive and integrated with other networks. As such, Cyber security plays a vital role in Smart Grids. Cyber security offers a protection against cyber attacks and hacking of websites. Cryptography is one of the important components under Cyber security. It aims to protect data from theft, forging and making authorized changes. The proposed webinar covers symmetric and asymmetric and various methods associated. The Python programming is used for writing source code for data communication, encryption and decryption. The source code is executed under Google Colab Platform which will be demonstrated during the webinar. The applications of machine learning are also covered in the proposed webinar.
