Over the last couple years, those in the Smart Grid security community have witnessed a number of news reports on vulnerabilities with Smart Grid technology that are not particularly flattering. For example, a widely circulated AP article called into question the security of various smart meters currently being deployed. However, the article left out some of the caveats noted during their interviews that utilities and vendors are working hard to identify and fix flaws discovered and that there are effective defense-in-depth measures available that would significantly limit the effects of a successful attack. These considerations are addressed in a clarification published by one of the companies cited in the article. Unfortunately, this is the inevitable result of a rapidly growing technology that is not well understood by many and a news media that may believe bold statements make more interesting reading than balanced reporting.
