1. Measuring the Effect of Wireless Sensor Network Communications on Industrial Process Performance
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/12/2015
Authors: Richard Candell, Kang B Lee
Abstract: Real-time sensor data is essential for making decisions in controlling industrial processes. Wireless sensor networks (WSN's) are becoming more common for industrial processes and condition monitoring. However, wireless communication is subject to in ...

2. Guest Editorial Article: Special Issue on Cyber Physical Systems and Security for Smart Grid
Topic: Networking
Published: 9/1/2015
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: Although there are many important CPS systems in practice, one of the most complex applications is the Smart Grid whose function is to distribute reliable and efficient electric energy with a high degree of sustainability. While the Smart Grid aims t ...

3. Hierarchical Wireless Network Design for Synchrophasor Communication in Distributed Generation Grid
Topic: Networking
Published: 6/8/2015
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: There has been a growing interest in the deployment of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) in a Distributed Generation (DG) grid system. The main obstacle is the lack of a communication network infrastructure that can support phasor measurements for dist ...

4. Measuring Impact of Cybersecurity on the Performance of Industrial Control Systems
Topic: Networking
Published: 12/31/2014
Authors: Keith A Stouffer, Richard Candell
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing a cybersecurity testbed for industrial control systems (ICS). The goal of the testbed is to measure the performance of ICS when instrumented with cybersecurity countermeasure ...

5. Energy Harvesting from the Human Leg Motion
Topic: Networking
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Kamran Sayrafian, Antonio M Possolo, Nathalie Yarkony
Abstract: Kinetic energy harvested from the human body motion seems to be one of the most attractive and convenient solution for wearable wireless sensors in healthcare applications. Due to their small size, such sensors typically have a very limited battery- ...

6. Trust Issues with Opportunistic Encryption
Topic: Networking
Published: 2/28/2014
Author: Scott William Rose
Abstract: Recent revelations have shed light on the scale of eavesdropping on Internet traffic; violating the privacy of almost every Internet user. In response, protocol designers, engineers and service operators have begun deploying encryption (often oppo ...

7. WS-Biometric Devices
Topic: Networking
Published: 12/17/2013
Authors: Kevin C Mangold, Ross J Micheals

8. Smart Grid Mesh Network Security Using Dynamic Key Distribution with Merkle Tree 4-Way Handshaking
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/13/2013
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: Distributed mesh sensor networks provide cost-effective communications for deployment in various smart grid domains, such as home area networks (HAN), neighborhood area networks (NAN), and substation/plant-generation local area networks. This paper i ...

9. Guideline for the Implementation of Coexistence for Low Frequency Narrowband Power Line Communication Standards in the Smart Grid
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7943
Topic: Networking
Published: 6/25/2013
Author: David H Su
Abstract: The Smart Grid Interoperability Panel (SGIP) was established by NIST to facilitate execution of tasks under the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007. The Priority Action Plan 15 (PAP 15 ) working group of the SGIP was established ...

10. Quantifying Network Topology Robustness Under Budget Constraints
Topic: Networking
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Assane Gueye, Aron Lazska
Abstract: To design robust network topologies that resist strategic attacks, one must first be able to quantify robustness. In a recent line of research, the theory of network blocking games has been used to derive robustness metrics for topologies. A netw ...
