The necessity of reliable and secure Substation Automation Market protection and control systems as well as the entire utility information infrastructure is being pushed in many markets. This is done majorly by regulations to ensure national security due to the potential impact that a coordinated cyber-attack on the electric utility control system could have on wide scale outages. Till recently, cyber security was not considered an issue as many utilities were unaware of possible cyber security threats. As most of substation communication networks are open and additional information access requirements are growing, protocols (like TCP/IP) and the network itself are becoming more and more vulnerable. IEDs are continuously becoming more interconnected. Remote access to IEDs via modern IP networks, Internet, and WAN (Wide Area Network) technologies present many security threats.
