    Findings from National Yunlin University of Science and Technology Update Knowledge of Computers and Electrical Engineering (Secure Authentication Protocol for Home Area Network In Smart Grid-based Smart Cities)

    June 2, 2023 - NewsRx Policy and Law Daily


      2023 JUN 01 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at NewsRx Policy and Law Daily -- Investigators publish new report on Engineering - Computers and Electrical Engineering. According to news originating from Touliu, Taiwan, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “The Internet of Things (IoT) allows better solutions for managing challenges such as reliability and power quality in a smart grid environment. It also assists in adopting smart grid measures in smart city development.”

      Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the National Yunlin University of Science and Technology, “A smart meter in the smart grid environment must securely access services from a service provider via public channels. An adversary can pose several security vulnerabilities as the communication occurs through a public channel. Various researchers recently conducted several research types to determine the most challenging problems with the smart grid. The security features like integrity, authentication, and confidentiality are indispensable requirements of the smart grid environment. On the other hand, different objects like smart meters in the smart grid environment are resource-constrained, posing in designing lightweight security protocols. Hence, we propose a lightweight mutual authentication scheme to offer surveillance to smart meters in smart grid infrastructure. We analyze the suggested protocol against well-known security threats.”

      According to the news editors, the research concluded: “Finally, we evaluate the performance of the protocol to illustrate its efficiency.”

      This research has been peer-reviewed.
