This report presents the anticipatory adaptive security models for adopting and enhancing adaptive security for system of systems. It reviews, extends and establishes models for adaptive security through predication and advanced behavioural analysis of real-time big-data, security monitoring of the entire grid operations prevention, detection and recovery from the failures of security and privacy protections. It also describes the use cases which will be used to validate the developed components.
With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) smart grids become interrelated, interconnected, and even more accessible, both for legitimate users and for adversaries. The IoTSec (Security in IoT for Smart Grids) project promotes the safe and secure IoT-enabled smart power grid infrastructure. We develop anticipatory adaptive security models which address evolving threats by increasing awareness, anticipating and automating prevention, detection, and recovery at runtime by re-configuring control parameters and even changing structures and security goals. The developed anticipatory adaptive security mechanisms will use the combination of evolutionary game theory and distributed behavioural analysis for IoT-enabled Smart Grids. The expected outcome of this work are modules for use in the operational security.
