讲座题目：Towards a Secure and Resilient Microgrid Using Software-Defined Networking
讲座内容： Smart microgrids are increasingly adopting Internet technology to boost control efficiency, which unfortunately opens up a new front for a potential “cyber Pearl Harbor.” People typically apply existing security techniques, such as firewalls or anti-virus software to secure critical energy infrastructures. However, those solutions can only provide fine-grained protection at single devices. In this talk, we present a novel software-defined networking (SDN) based communication architecture for microgrid operations, with the goal of building a resilient and secure microgrid in the face of growing cyber-attacks and human errors. To enable high-fidelity evaluation of those applications in large-scale settings, we also develop a hybrid testbed combining virtual-machine-based network emulation and power system simulation using our kernel-based virtual time system.
