Open Flow Secure Grid OFSE

Short introduction to OFSE

Project specifications/boundaries

  1. OF control risks (communication between of switch and of controller) will be looked at theoretically only
  1. Will not have SCADA in test bed
  1. OF time synchronization will be based on ntp/gps clocks


WP1 Management


WP2 OF Technical Risk Assessment

WP3 OF Rapid Prototype

WP4 OF Modelling

Future Tasks

  1. Mapping of goose, sv, ... traffic using OpenFlow

Potentially of interest for testing:

"It should be kept in mind that the reliability of of GOOSE messages depends on the prerequisite that not more than two consecutive messages are lost. This prerequisite has been validated by a lot of tests based on physical disturbance scenarios [3], pages 53-56."

"...the latencies of the critical protection GOOSE frames [must] be less than 10 ms 99,99 % of the time [8], page 109."
