Abstract:

To fulfill the promise of the Smart Grid, which includes much more interaction with customers, utilities are increasingly interconnecting their information systems and encourgaging customers to interact with them via customer portal applications that can be accessed via browsers, smart phones, iPads, etc. However, most if not all of this capability is delivered through software, which if not developed in accordance with secure development best practices, will make it far too easy for attackers to find and exploit high severity vulnerabilites in these systems. This presentation will characterize the situation and suggest potential process and technology approaches to ensure these portals are as secure as they need to be and can be deployed with confidence.
