Electricity grids must cope with rising demand and complexity in a changing world. Smart grid is a promising solution to address these challenges. Recently, Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is proposed as an integral part of the smart grid that collect and analyze the measurements of energy consumption using the communication network that links the(More)
Providing security and privacy to users are critical in wireless mesh networks (WMNs). In this paper, a distributed security architecture is introduced to manage the mesh clients and a secure routing scheme that preserves the privacy of the end-users is proposed. In order to maximize routing efficiency, key indexing is used and symmetric cipher is employed(More)
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a critical system in smart grid. While readings of aggregated power consumption are needed for near real time response to energy demand, relatively slow paced readings of power demand in each individual household are also very important, because they account for an accurate billing for energy usage at each(More)
Although mesh and tree communication network topologies both bear some advantages, none of them alone can satisfy the robustness and real-time requirements of data collection in the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). To address this problem, a biconnected tree based topology is proposed in this work. Specifically, in order to mitigate the effects of(More)
