DJRA1.3.3 – Security Area Work Plan and Status Report (M24)

Security Area Work Plan and Status Report: This deliverable contains the detailed work plan of the Security Services technical area compliant with the overall EMI Technical Development Plan. The plan is released early in the project life and updated every year including a status report on the achievements of the past 12 months compared to the planned objectives. This status report covers the current status and plans for the next years while the work plan at M36 will provide recommendations for further work.
This is an update of DJRA1.3.2 – Security Area Work Plan and Status Report (M12)

P1 external reviewers' report on D5.3.2 Security Area Work Plan and Status Report (M12)
This deliverable is an update of D5.3.1. Objective-level progress is reported in a status update. The workplan has been enhanced but it is still very conventional and conservative, taking a static view of the software stack. This is hardly surprising as the chosen analysis method reinforces this way of thinking. An alternative approach, starting from the perspective of attempting to understand the threat surface presented by the EMI software stack, followed by a consideration of “what it means to be secure in the grid” might reveal a number of additional dynamic and behavioural security issues that could additionally need to be resolved. Given the constraints imposed by the chosen approach, there are initial attempts to define how some of these tasks will achieve the anticipated capability defined in the respective objectives.
