Analysis and Optimization Technique of Secure Smart Grid Communication Network for Sustainable Development

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes on Multidisciplinary Industrial Engineering book series (LNMUINEN)


The smart network includes many sub-frameworks, for example, the Home Area Network (HAN), which are at risk and prone to be attacked remotely. A smart grid communication is meant to design a mutual authentication scheme and a key management protocol. This study is aimed with an efficient arrangement for HAN that analyzes a framework set-up for HAN. In this paper, we have analyzed three cases: First, we show the normal execution then execution along with attackers. Using mutual authentication, we overcome attacks. It has introduced a number of routing schemes for grid networks in recent years, and they provide different level of privacy protection at different cost. First, an unspecified key establishment process is performed to construct secret session keys. By using NS-2, the performance analysis such as energy, bandwidth is simulated. In this work, our primary concern is to identify the attacks in HAN.
