1711 - Standard for a Cryptographic Protocol for EPS Serial Links

The elevated concern of cyber security throughout the power industry has created a need to protect communications to and from substations or other locations throughout the Electric Power System (EPS). This suite of standards defines cryptographic protocols for serial communications throughout the EPS such as those typically used by substation equipment. This standard, IEEE 1711, is the overarching standard that defines common elements for serial cryptographic protocols while related standards, e.g. IEEE 1711.1 and IEEE 1711.2, define particular cryptographic protocol implementations.
