—Privacy and protection of user-related data is of paramount importance in Smart Grid scenarios: on one hand, information regarding customers' personal habits can be inferred by analysing metering data; on the other hand, detailed knowledge of consumption measurements is crucial for the timely management of energy distribution, provisioning, and(More)
—The widespread deployment of Automatic Metering Infrastructures in Smart Grid scenarios rises great concerns about privacy preservation of user-related data, from which detailed information about customer's habits and behaviours can be deduced. Therefore, the users' individual measurements should be aggregated before being provided to External Entities(More)
The increasing diffusion of Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) and the possibility to open the system to third party services has raised many concerns about the protection of personal data related to energy, water or gas consumption , from which details about the habits of the users can be inferred. This paper proposes an infrastructure and a communication(More)
—The increasing diffusion of Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) has raised many concerns about the protection of personal data related to energy, water or gas consumption, from which details about the habits of the users can be inferred. On the other hand, aggregated measurements about consumption are crucial for several goals, including resource provisioning,(More)
—Measurements gathered by Smart Meters and collected through the Automatic Metering Infrastructure of Smart Grids can be accessed by numerous external subjects for different purposes, ranging from billing to grid monitoring and management. Therefore, metering data must be securely handled, in order to protect the users' privacy and to prevent the disclosure(More)
Stochastic Network Calculus is a modern theory for studying the delay performance of a queuing system. So far, this theory proved very effective in studying QoS in the wireline transmission media. In fact, it provides an upper bound to the probability tail of the queuing delay and requires only the expression of an arrival curve, which models the traffic(More)
