Kick-off meeting of SDN-microSENSE project

The SDN – microsense (microgrid reSilient Electrical eNergy SystEm) project is led by AYESA along with other 30 partners from all over Europe, including the group of Power Systems at IREC. The kick-off meeting of a this new H2020 European project was held yesterday in Sevilla.

The SDN-microSENSE project intends to provide a set of secure, privacy-enabled and resilient to cyberattacks tools, thus ensuring the normal operation of EPES as well as the integrity and the confidentiality of communications. In particular, adopting an SDN-based technology, SDN-microSENSE will develop a three-layer security architecture, by deploying and implementing risk assessment processes, self-healing capabilities, large-scale distributed detection and prevention mechanisms, as well as an overlay privacy protection framework.
