In the past, the easiest way to attack the electrical grid would have been to physically access and

destroy components. However, with the introduction of the smart grid and its increased dependence on

information and communication technologies (ICT), the future grid may be vulnerable to pernicious cyber

attacks performed remotely. In CRISALIS and SysSec, we are studying the properties of the envisioned

smart grid to enable us to anticipate and mitigate future attacks against this critical infrastructure.
