COMMSEC: Shining a Light On Solar System Cyber Security

In this talk, I will present serious issues with residential & commercial hardware used to control critical elements of the power sector. A sustained attack on the energy sector would be catastrophic, to say the very least. With novel scenarios such as ripple detectors, negative power demand, automatic street transformer tap changers, and the risk of high household solar penetrance. Featuring the usual suspects: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and remote insecure dashboards. What could possibly go wrong? This talk will demonstrate some of my own research, as well as hopefully inspire others to perform low barrier-to-entry yet severly overlooked & under-researched points of disaster.
