Saving energy, reducing costs, and increasing reliability are advantages of smart grid, but only if the safety of the system is guaranteed. To ensure correct operation, communications must be secure. A novel crypto graphic mechanism suitable for smart grid environments, namely the time-varying encryption system, is proposed in this paper. In the Ethernet network, the millisecond level time synchronization among client clocks and the server clock can be reached if they follow the Network Time… CONTINUE READING
