Updating Brownfield Substation Control Systems with DNP3 Secure Authentication

Presented by

Dean Weber, CTO, Mocana, Mark Peterson, Technical Application Engineer, GE Power, and Keao Caindec, VP of Marketing, Mocana

About this talk

One of the biggest security challenges for electric utilities is upgrading the vast number of substation control systems that lack compliant electronic access controls. Ensuring the safety and reliability of our electric grid requires a practical and effective approach to upgrading security across a variety of IEDs, RTUs, gateway controllers and bridges. Additionally, complying with standards such as NERC CIP 003-7, IEC 62443, IEC 62351, FIPS 140-2, and NIST 800-53 require stronger access controls and authentication. In this session, Mocana and GE will present an overview of the cyber threat vectors impacting the grid and ways to defend against them. Additionally, an example will be presented on upgrading brownfield substation devices with DNP3 Secure Authentication and stronger cryptographic controls to meet the new and existing cybersecurity standards.
