The standard defines the functions and features to be provided in IEDs to accommodate CIP programs. Specifically, the standard states which safeguards, audit mechanisms, and alarm indications shall be provided by the vendor of the IED with regard to all activities associated with access, operation, configuration, firmware revision, and data retrieval from an IED. The standard also allows the user to define a security program around these features, and alert the user if an IED does not meet this standard as to the need for other defensive measures (technical and/or procedural) that may need to be taken. The encryption for the secure transmission of data both within and external to the substation is also part of this standard.The standard defines the functions and features to be provided in intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) to accommodate critical infrastructure protection (CIP) programs. The standard addresses security regarding the access, operation, configuration, firmware revision, and data retrieval from an IED. Encryption of communications to and from the IED is also addressed.
