Special Issue on Information Integrity in Smart Grid Systems
Information Systems, Elsevier


The smart grid is an electronically controlled electrical grid that connects power generation, transmission, distribution, and consumers using information and communication technology. One of the key characteristics of the smart grid is its support for bi-directional information flow between the consumer of electricity and the utility provider. A critical twist on the current electrical grid system, this kind of two-way interaction would allow electricity to be generated in real-time based on consumer demands and power requests. While the system would allow users to get more control over electricity use and supply, many security issues are raised to ensure information privacy of the users as well as authorization procedures for electricity use. Security loopholes in the system could, in fact, aggravate the electricity supply system instead of improving it. The quality of the information from billing and accounting is also a major concern. With this Special Issue, we open the door to encourage researchers to discuss issues related to information integrity and security services in the smart grid, particularly from the communication point of view to construct energy, control, and information processing systems for the smart grid.

Topics of Interest:

Any topic related to information integrity and security services in the smart grid, particularly from the communications and data management point of view, is to be considered. The topics include but are not limited to:

- Data quality in the smart grid
- Secure smart metering
- Secure Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) communication and management
- Privacy protection in smart grid
- Smart grid security database architecture and models
- Security services for smart grid
- User authentication, access control for smart grid
- Hardware design for information protection in smart grid
- Simulation and performance analysis of smart grid security operations
