Limiting privacy by using smart meters - information security perspectives
Uroš Jelenc, Blaž Markelj, 2019, original scientific article

Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to present the key features of smart energy meters, their strengths and weaknesses. In addition, the paper aims at establishing how they interfere with user privacy and determine the users’ level of awareness. Design/Methods/Approach: For the purpose of this paper, existing literature was reviewed and analysed, and a questionnaire was distributed in a digital form. 229 respondents participated in the survey. Findings: It has been found that smart energy meters collect very accurate information about users’ electricity consumption at short intervals. The information can then be used to identify devices, identify the presence or absence of people, their habits and activities. According to the survey results, the awareness among people using smart energy meters is low. Research Limitations / Implications: The limitations stem from the survey sample, as only people who are users of online social networks, e-mail and internet messaging applications (Viber, WhatsApp) were included in the survey. Practical Implications: The paper presents key findings in the field of smart energy meters and their potential for compromising individuals’ safety and privacy. The paper discusses different ways in which energy consumption information can be exploited and used to harm users, as well as methods for establishing a secure and reliable network. Originality/Value: Due to the increasing share of smart energy meters installed in Slovenia, there is an increasing risk of privacy intrusions and threats to the safety of individuals. The research findings will help increasing users’ awareness about smart energy meters and prevent potential abuse of their data.

Pametni merilniki energije in informacijska varnost
Uroš Jelenc, 2019, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Pametni merilniki energije predstavljajo korak k modernizaciji električnih omrežij. So naprave, izdelane za hitro, učinkovito in zanesljivo dovajanje informacij o porabi energije energetskim podjetjem. Njihova preprosta naloga ima velik pomen v svetu informacijske varnosti. Pametni merilniki energije merijo porabo energije na intervalu od 60 minut do 1 minute, merijo lahko tudi vsako sekundo ali v realnem času. Učinkovitost in zanesljivost omrežja je odvisna od intervala merjenja. Interval merjenja hkrati pomeni količino in natančnost podatkov o uporabnikih in njihovih domovih. S podatki o porabi energije se lahko razvidi dejavnost uporabnikov, njihova odsotnost ali prisotnost ter njihove navade. V okviru raziskovalnega dela je bila izvedena anketa, narejena z namenom pridobivanja znanja oseb o pametnih merilnikih energije - zlasti zavedanje oseb o potencialnih grožnjah, ki jih predstavljajo pametni merilniki energije ter ali so osebam na splošno pomembni podatki, ki se lahko pridobijo s pametnimi merilniki energije. Ugotovljeno je bilo, da seznanjenost oseb s pametnimi merilniki v Sloveniji ni visoka, vendar se kljub temu zavedajo pomembnosti podatkov o porabi energije in njihovi zaščiti. Z anketo se je ugotovilo, da je pri anketiranih visok odklon v primeru, da bi energetsko podjetje slabo ravnalo z njihovimi podatki in jih izkoriščalo. V diplomskem delu so prikazane ključne lastnosti pametnih merilnikov energije, njihove prednosti, tveganja in grožnje. S pregledom literature in raziskav je bilo ugotovljeno, da se iz porabe energije lahko razvidi veliko o osebah in njihovih domovih. Podatki o porabi energije, ki so neustrezno zaščiteni, se lahko zlorabljajo in uporabljajo za različne namene, ki škodujejo uporabnikom.
