English abstract:
-Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is the main
player in todays Smart Grid, and Home Area Network (HAN)
is an important subsystem in AMI. HAN connects the smart
home appliances (SHA) inside the home to the smart meter (SM),
which is connected to the power utility company. In the last
decade, hardware Trojans (HT), have been extensively studied
in both academia and industry. Consequently, the vulnerability
of integrated circuits (ICs) against HTs leads to the potential
security threat to any system that contains ICs, and HAN is no
exception. However, to the best of authors knowledge, the potential
effect of HTs on HAN has not been studied in the literature so
far. In this paper, we are investigating HT in HAN network. In
the process, we developed a testbed which can be scalable up
to 127 nodes using I2C interface to control and implement any
kind of required network behavior. We introduced three possible
scenarios of HTs in this HAN network testbed. These scenarios
illustrate the manifestation of HTs in the HAN that leads to
network performance degradation.
