Executive Summary

This article, which was published in June 2016 in "Journal of Information Security and Applications," describes a multipart IEC standard that is aimed at improving security in automation systems in the power system.

The authors conclude that the standard can significantly improve security in power systems if applied comprehensively, but they also note that the need to preserve (partial) backwards-compatibility has led to some design choices that provide less security than could have been achieved with a more ambitious approach domain.
