Features

Cybersecurity is at the forefront of network operators’ considerations in digitalizing power systems.

Cybersecurity is best achieved with a defense-in-depth approach. Combining multiple security controls.

 

These include:

  • Identity management
  • Access control
  • Secure communication
  • Malware protection
  • Data protection
  • Settings protection

Management of these security controls can become a cumbersome and time-consuming activity with the ever increasing number of digitalized and interconnected products and services in power systems. Establishing a public key infrastructure (PKI) helps cope with these increasing demands in a scalable manner by bringing certificate-based security to power systems.

 

SICAM GridPass manages the following aspects:

  • Authenticate: Check identity and authenticity of automated signing requests
  • Issue: Sign certificates automatically or manually
  • Renew: Renew certificates
  • Revoke: Manage and publish a list of revoked certificates
