An integrated system of IED access management and password management...
This paper is for electrical utilities that need to maintain and manage assets, maintain high reliability of power systems; and efficiently comply with regulatory standards.
Vendor-specific password, security, faceplate, and display capabilities of substation IEDs makes it difficult for utilities to easily manage the access to, and passwords of, all their different substation IEDs. This limitation also complicates compliance with NERC CIP standards during this process. This, in turn, impairs utilities’ ability to operate efficiently.
This white paper describes a solution from SUBNET Solutions Inc., called the SUBNET IED Management Solution – PowerSYSTEM Center, which addresses these challenges by providing an integrated system of IED access management and password management.
Topic headings include:
- 1. The interoperability challenge
- 2. The IED access and management challenge
- 3. Remote access to IEDs
- 4. NERC CIP compliance
- 5. IED management solution
- 6. Password management
- 7. Unified Grid Intelligence
