Industry Workshop Banner 

Our CREDC Annual Industry Workshop will be held September 12-13 at the MIT Samberg Conference Center in Cambridge, MA. A welcome reception will be held the evening of September 11. 

   •  Registration Deadline: August 15, 2018
   •  Room Block Reservation Deadline: August 20, 2018
   •  The cost to attend is $200 per attendee
   •  Use Invitation Code: IW18INVITE

If you represent energy stakeholders at power utilities, oil and gas industries, vendors of energy delivery technology or equipment, security consultant firms, or industry R&D labs, please plan to join us! 

Our 1.5 day program features invited speakers and panelists from industry, national labs, and government agencies that focus on emerging and critical topics in EDS cybersecurity and cyber resiliency, a CREDC research poster session, and networking opportunities. Participants will have an opportunity to engage with CREDC researchers, to learn about CREDC research, development, & technology, and to have an impact on current research and future research plans. Visit the event website and follow CREDC on social media for registration and program updates as they become available. 

NOTE: this event is not open to academic researchers from non-CREDC partner universities.


Energy utilities and EDS industries are encouraged to partner with CREDC and contribute to the development and transfer of emerging EDS tools and technology. Below is a sample of opportunities. Click on each item to learn how you can inform or benefit from emerging tech that promotes cyber-physical operational resiliency and recovery! Please also follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook for the latest updates.

Abstract image representing ADNA: Anomaly Detection aNd Analysis Tool 

Wenyu Ren and Klara Nahrstedt at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are working on an online, context-aware, intelligent tool for anomaly detection and analysis for SCADA networks. Industry are encouraged to contact Wenyu and Klara to learn how they can inform R&D and promote cyber-physical operational resiliency and recovery. Learn more >>

Abstract image representing CyPhyR: Cyber-Physical Resiliency technology 

Anurag Srivastava, Adam Hahn, and Venkatesh Venkataramanan at Washington State University are working on technology that analyzes the impact of vulnerabilities on the planning and operation phases of a microgrid. CyPhyR also provides a measure for resilience, for both cyber and physical systems to manage vulnerabilities better, and for the system operator to quickly understand the real-time resilience of the system. The team welcomes additional industry and utility collaborators to further develop CyPhyR. Learn more >>

Abstract image representing ExSol: A Risk Assessment Ecosystem for EDS technology 

Carlos Rubio Medrano and Josie Lamp at Arizona State University are working on ExSol, a risk-assessment ecosystem that uses collaborative feedback & fine-grained metrics from diverse parts of an Energy Delivery System (EDS) to quantify and assess cyber-security risk. Prototype is available for asset holders. Learn more >>

Abstract image representing TSV: Trusted Safety Verifier technology 

Trusted Safety Verifier (TSV) is an emerging technology that addresses the security vulnerability of a control system by verifying safety-critical code before it can be executed on PLC's. Saman Zonouz and his research team at Rutgers University welcome collaboration from utilities and EDS vendors. Learn more >>

Abstract image representing Secure Conduits technology 

CREDC Researchers at Darmouth College are developing secure conduits which can help replace vulnerable legacy code with hardened code that keeps functionality, but removes dead features. EDS industry collaboration is welcome! For more information about secure conduits and forthcoming prototype, contact J. Peter (Pete) Brady. Learn more >>

Abstract image representing Secure Parsers for EDS Protocols 

Protect your SCADA/ICS protocol implementations from input-handling vulnerabilities using hardened protocol parsers. Ready-to-use implementations for DNP3, MQTT, C37.118 available now. The team welcomes additional industrial collaboration. Contact Prashant Anantharaman at Dartmouth College. Learn more >>

Abstract image representing Scalable Identity and Key Management Scheme for MQTT 

Scalable identity and key management scheme for MQTT solves identity ontology problems in smart grid while protecting devices from active server compromises and MITM attacks. The team welcomes additional collaborators. Contact Prashant Anantharaman at Dartmouth College. Learn more >>
