The U.S. Department of Energy has sponsored an effort led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) to develop a flexible cryptographic solution for DERs that will provide robust security and a low total cost of ownership. The team is developing a crypto module that is lightweight, easy to operate, and can be added to any type of DER.

For this workshop, the NREL and SNL team wants your feedback. Our goal is to engage with utilities, equipment vendors, and others to identify and further understand potential challenges in this area--and be successful in developing a cryptographic module that meets industry needs and offers protection for DERs. By convening a balance of industry vendors, utility owners and operators, academia, and national labs, we hope to foster engaging dicussion, productive breakouts, and a full day of collaboration.
