Also at the IoT Grand Slam conference, David Maher, will deliver a spotlight Keynote address titled: Are smart grids the flying cars of the energy industry? The talk will discuss how moving from a hierarchically controlled system to a hyperconnected cyber-physical market-driven system with precise, instantaneous supply and demand synchronization will require a tour de force of secure system science. The security infrastructure for smart grids that enables reliable, fluid, low-latency, and automated market mechanisms will include: Network independent, explicit private networks; advanced, attribute-based identity management; and authenticated and authoritative mechanisms for data and control. IoT devices will need to pair with digital twins so that the operative devices remain simple, focused, and responsive. Their twins can employ AI mechanisms that detect and share anomalies and threats, continually upgrade device security, and employ self-healing strategies. The talk will go on to stress the importance of a responsive, distributed trust management infrastructure that authenticates attributes of devices, services, data feeds, and software components. We will discuss the main issue of how to design and deploy all of this interoperably in a way that attracts participation from suppliers of both devices and services. https://iotslam.com/session/are-smart-grids-the-flying-cars-of-the-energy-industry/
