CyberSAVe - Situational awareness visualization for cyber security of smart grid systems

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Date of Original Version



We offer algorithms and visualization techniques for cyber trust in a Smart Grid system. Cyber trust is evaluated in terms of a mathematical model consisting of availability, detection and false alarm trust values, as well as a model of predictability. We develop a prototype Cyber Situational Awareness Visualization (CyberSAVe) tool to visualize cyber trust. We provide Operational Decision Aids (ODAs) displayed in context with a SCADA management information. We define cyber trust metrics, which are calculated and displayed in real-time in the Metric Assessment System (MAS) of CyberSAVe. We demonstrate the use of trust combined with visualization of trust to detect various types of attacks on the Smart Grid. Copyright 2013 ACM.
