Understanding EAX' Smart Grid Security

Much of the latest smart grid and AMI technology relies on the open ANSI C12.22/IEEE1703 standard for the transport of meter data over networks. And this specification relies on a security mechanism called EAX', a modification of the EAX mode cryptography scheme.

A new report provides a concise explanation of how this security protocol functions. Download the full PDF here.

As we recently posted, smart grid security is becoming a booming industry unto itself, with billions of dollars to be spent in the coming years.
