  • Laboratory of Cybersecurity in the Smart Grid

    The Laboratory of Cybersecurity in the Smart Grid emulates a Software - Hardware real time communications environment of a Primary Distribution Substation, in which the electronic equipment (IEDs) that control and supervise the electrical equipment (switches, transformers, ...) have been deployed. It also simulates a Control Center, with basic functionalities, to which the Substation equipment is connected. The laboratory allows to: - Simulate the real communications between the different equipment and systems of the control center and the substation. - Play a set of cyber attacks through tools for generating penetration tests (ethical hacking) - Test the response of equipment (RTU, SCU, protection relays, ...) and information systems (SCADA, LDAP server, ...) from external manufacturers to those attacks. - Test the effectiveness of attack detection tools developed by external manufacturers. The two environments (substation and control center) are connected through an Ethernet network established between two routers. This allows the management of external access to the laboratory. Both routers establish a VPN connection.
