An attacker’s perspective on Distribution System Operator (in)security

Hacking Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) – an attacker’s perspective on Distribution System Operator (in)security
21.10.2020

The presentation will guide audience through a complete ICS attack vector aimed at compromising smart meters and advanced metering infrastructure. It will show how in a recent case study team of security researchers identified zero days in smart devices and vulnerabilities in other components of AMI architecture and leveraged those to simulate comprehensive attack scenario. The talk will show an overview of challenges of smart metering solutions cybersecurity in Europe.

During the presentation, you can find out more about:

  • Smart meters design, architecture and role of firmware
  • Approach to reverse engineering smart meters firmware
  • Results of DLMS/COSEM protocol implementation reversing – examples of identified key vulnerabilities
  • Examples of common misconfigurations of 3G modems, PLC concentrators and serial port gateways
  • Exploitation of identified vulnerabilities in simulated attack on DSO (Energy Distribution System Operator) and end customer
