The NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is pleased to announce the release of NIST SP 1800-32, Securing Distributed Energy Resources: An Example Solution of Industrial Internet of Things Cybersecurity.
The use of small-scale distributed energy resources (DERs) is growing rapidly and transforming the power grid. In this new, modern power grid a distribution utility may need to remotely communicate with thousands of DERs and other grid-edge devices—many of which are not owned by them. Any attack that can deny, disrupt, or tamper with DER communications could prevent a utility from performing necessary control actions and could diminish grid resiliency.
The NCCoE practice guide features an example solution that can help organizations:
