DRAFT Smart Grid Cyber Security Strategy and Requirements

NIST announces that draft NIST IR 7628, Smart Grid Cyber Security Strategy and Requirements, is now available for public comment. The first draft of the document contains the overall security strategy for the Smart Grid and the products developed from this strategy, for example, development of vulnerability classes, identification of well-understood security problems that need to be addressed, selection and development of security-relevant use cases, identification and analysis of interfaces identified in the six functional priority areas and selection of a suite of security documents that will be used as the base for the selection and tailoring of security requirements. This is the first draft of the NISTIR; the next draft is scheduled to be posted for comment in December 2009.
