Advanced metering devices (smart meters) are being installed throughout electric networks in Germany (as well as in other parts of Europe and in the United States). Unfortunately, smart meters are able to become surveillance devices that monitor the behavior of the customers. This leads to unprecedented invasions of consumer privacy. The high-resolution energy consumption data which are transmitted to the utility company allow intrusive identification and monitoring of equipment within… Expand
Enhancing user privacy by preprocessing distributed smart meter data
TLDR
This paper investigates the impact on user privacy when the consumption data collected by distributed smart metering devices are preprocessed prior to their usage and shows that a combination of these preprocessing steps can provide a balanced trade-off that is in the interests of both users and utilities. Expand
Identification of TV Channel Watching from Smart Meter Data Using Energy Disaggregation
TLDR
This paper investigates the potential of identifying the multimedia content played by a TV or monitor device using the central house's smart meter measuring the aggregated energy consumption from all working appliances of the household. Expand
Security issues in smart metering systems
Intelligent buildings are not imaginable anymore without smart metering devices. Smart metering systems are used not only for the provisioning of instantaneous metering information on commodities,Expand
Smart Meter Data Privacy: A Survey
TLDR
This paper provides a structured overview, shortcomings, recommendations, and research directions of security solutions that are needed for privacy-preserving meter data delivery and management for the three application areas: 1) billing; 2) operations; and 3) value-added services including demand response. Expand
Neighborhood watch: security and privacy analysis of automatic meter reading systems
TLDR
A security and privacy analysis of Automatic Meter Reading technology finds that the technology lacks basic security measures to ensure privacy, integrity, and authenticity of the data and recommends security remedies including a solution based on defensive jamming that may be easier to deploy than upgrading the meters themselves. Expand
Privacy Aware Demand Response and Smart Metering
TLDR
It is shown that it is possible to hide most charging signals and One Level Consumption tries to exploit demand response components such as battery, elastic load and distributed generators to maintain a constant consumption throughout the whole day. Expand
Influence of Data Granularity on Smart Meter Privacy
  • G. Eibl, D. Engel
  • Engineering, Computer Science
  • IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid
  • 2015
TLDR
It is shown that when the time interval exceeds half the on-time of an appliance, the appliance use detection rate declines and represents these F-scores visually through a heatmap yields an easily understandable way of presenting potential privacy implications in smart metering to the end-user or other decision makers. Expand
A Study on Realistic Energy Storage Systems for the Privacy of Smart Meter Readings of Residential Users
TLDR
This paper analyses and compares different energy storage technologies for the protection of residential users by estimating the minimal required capacities and costs for both single and multiple user cases and shows that the integrity can be protected with reasonable capacities and investments ranging in the margin of market available products.

EB MONITOR-LIFI BASED INTEGRATION OF USER BEHAVIOUR MONITORING , PRIVACY PRESERVING
Light Fidelity technology is a data transmission method which employs illumination for transferring light or data as a communication medium. This paper illustrates development of advancedExpand
Privacy of smart meter systems with an alternative energy source
TLDR
Focusing on continuous input loads, the privacy-power function is characterized when there is only peak power limitation on the AES, while the Shannon lower bound is provided for the general case and the bound is shown to be achievable for the exponential input distribution. Expand

Private memoirs of a smart meter
TLDR
It is shown that even without a priori knowledge of household activities or prior training, it is possible to extract complex usage patterns from smart meter data using off-the-shelf statistical methods. Expand
Plug-In Privacy for Smart Metering Billing
TLDR
A privacy-preserving protocol that enables billing with time-of-use tariffs without disclosing the actual consumption profile to the supplier and a performance evaluation of a prototypical implementation is given. Expand
Privacy for Smart Meters: Towards Undetectable Appliance Load Signatures
Smart grid privacy encompasses the privacy of information extracted by analysing smart metering data. In this paper, we suggest that home electrical power routing can be used to moderate the home'sExpand
Smart Grid Privacy via Anonymization of Smart Metering Data
TLDR
The method described in this paper provides a 3rd party escrow mechanism for authenticated anonymous meter readings which are difficult to associate with a particular smart meter or customer. Expand
A privacy-preserving Concept for Smart Grids
TLDR
This paper proposes a solution that provides anonymity for customers towards their ESP, and allows for the ESP to build trust in the software that is executed within their customers’ smart meters. Expand
Privacy protection system and metrics for hiding electrical events
TLDR
This paper develops a range of privacy metrics by combining clustering, information theoretic, correlation and regression techniques, and testing over a large data set obtained from real home measurements, and measuring how the appearance of ElecPrivacy events can be estimated. Expand
Privacy-Friendly Aggregation for the Smart-Grid
TLDR
Protocols that can be used to privately compute aggregate meter measurements over defined sets of meters, allowing for fraud and leakage detection as well as network management and further statistical processing of meter measurements, without revealing any additional information about the individual meter readings are presented.

DREAM: DiffeRentially privatE smArt Metering
This paper presents a new privacy-preserving smart metering system. Our scheme is private under the differential privacy model and therefore provides strong and provable guarantees. With our scheme,Expand
Televisions, video privacy, and powerline electromagnetic interference
TLDR
The power supplies of modern TVs produce discernible electromagnetic interference (EMI) signatures that are indicative of the video content being displayed, and these signatures are measured over time and across multiple instances of the same TV model. Expand
Some Ideas on Privacy Preserving Meter Aggregation
With the upcoming widespread distribution of smart meters for electricity, gas and water consumption, new opportunities are closely linked to new privacy concerns. In this paper, we present protocolsExpand
