A power grid is a network of power lines and associated equipment used to transmit and distribute electricity over a geographic area. And, due to the rapid ICT evolution several potential in centrally monitoring, controlling, and optimising the power grid. In this context, a more intelligent, responsive, and efficient, system has been devised, known as the Smart Grid (SG). 

However, besides the benefits of such an endeavour, the power grid will be exposed to security threats inherited from the ICT sector, while privacy issues and new vulnerabilities, related to the specific characteristics of the SG infrastructure, will emerge. The problem is assessed as crucial, if we consider that a potential attack to the SG may lead to cascading failures, ranging from destruction of other interconnected critical infrastructures to loss of human lives.

Considering the above, SealedGRID aims at bringing together experts from industry and academia from cross-sectorial research areas having complementary background with the long-term goal to design, analyze, and implement a scalable, highly trusted and interoperable Smart Grid security platformThe SealedGRID is an innovative platform, builds on a realistic architectural image of industrial installations considering the special characteristics of energy infrastructures, their cyber and physical requirements. The SealedGRID objectives are the following:

  • To contribute to the fulfilment of the objective of efficient operation of critical infrastructure, while preserving quality of service, for the ultimate benefit of customers.
  • To provide an integrated solution that will be applicable to existing systems as well.
  • To provide advanced security features in legacy equipment upgrading their capabilities for operation in modern computing environment.
  • To limit the security risks for the expansion of remote energy distribution network management, towards the evolution of Smart Grid.
  • To provide a platform that will abide by the existing standardization work and will be directly utilized by the shareholders to provide new tools towards a scalable, highly trusted, and interoperable Smart Grid security platform.

Have you ever received an SMS to your smartphone that asked you to follow a link for more information? It could be a delivery notice from an online store or postal service, or a notification of a new voicemail. Maybe the SMS seemed a bit off, and you might have wondered whether you should click the link or not. But you wanted to know where your parcel is or who left a message, so you went on and clicked it anyway.

Future Events

OLYMPUS H2020 project wants to invite you to a workshop on possible business opportunities around the results of the project. OLYMPUS has defined a quite new and advanced privacy preserving IdM solution based on a distributed model that can be interoperable with existing IdM solutions and that provide user centric vision of the privacy of his data.


SWForum.eu is organising its 2nd MTRL webinar series on 27 October 2021 from 14:00 to 15:00 CEST, understanding the criteria for optimal self-assessment of project outcomes using Market and Technology Readiness Levels (MTRL).
