SunSpec & Sandia Cybersecurity Webinar
Project Ekhi: Proactive Intrusion Detection and Mitigation System for DER Cybersecurity
About this Event
As part of its Civilian Cybersecurity research program, Sandia National Laboratories, led by Dr. Shamina Hossain-McKenzie, has developed a low-power, low-cost, “bump-in-the-wire” solution for detecting and responding to cyber threats to Distributed Energy Resources.
During this webinar, Dr. Hossain-McKenzie will describe her research in this area, highlighting the following aspects of the project:
- Understanding the network cybersecurity challenges associated with individual DER systems
- An overview of Project Ekhi technology, including how it leverages machine learning algorithms and signature-based intrusion detection techniques
- How the technology can be applied to solar PV/energy storage systems in the field and to emulation/analytics (“emulytics”) problems in the test lab environment
This session will also include a short, complimentary presentation by Jay Johnson, also of Sandia, regarding upcoming activities in the SunSpec/Sandia Cybersecurity Working Group.
