Multiple cyber-attacks against critical infrastructure 

Over the years, the Electrical Network has experienced a transformation on its operation. Although electricity is still flowing through the cables, a new component has been recently added, which is providing a more complex paradigm. We are talking about data and its transmission. Currently, the Electrical Network must deal with an unprecedented vast number of devices generating and sharing data through it. This situation converts the Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES) in a vulnerable infrastructure against cyber-attacks. Thus, one of the main objectives of the SDN-µSENSE project, was to design and demonstrate the robustness of the new resilient, multi-layered, and SDN-enabled microgrid architecture to tackle vulnerabilities. 
For this issue, six large-scale pilots across Europe were design for testing the technology. In the case of this blog post, we will focus on Pilot 4, which was tackling coordinated cyber-attacks from multiple external sources targeting different components of the EPES infrastructure. Then, the main purpose was to validate the different SDN-µSENSE components, to guarantee that the system provides the necessary prevention and detection measures to handle cyber-attacks.
