Ethernet gateway for Smart Grid

This Ethernet Security Gateway protects site-to-site Ethernet communications and private networks, allowing users to maximize the benefits of a Smart Grid while minimizing security risk.


SEL 3620 Ethernet Security Gateway

The SEL-3620 Ethernet Security Gateway protects site-to-site

Ethernet communications as well as private networks, allowing users to maximize

the benefits of a Smart Grid while minimizing security risk. Easy to use and

tough enough for harsh environments, the gateway operates with existing IT and

control systems, using an intuitive, menu-driven Web interface. SEL designed

and built the Ethernet security gateway, available this November, as part of a

research project with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Tennessee Valley

Authority and Sandia National Laboratories, among other partners.

Another element of SEL's smart grid security solutions is

the SEL-3021 Serial Encrypting Transceiver. It protects point-to-point and

multidrop data links from attacks and eavesdropping, with advanced encryption

validated to Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2. For

wireless applications, the SEL-3022 Wireless Encrypting Transceiver creates a

cryptographically secure wireless link between a computer and remote IED serial

communications port.

SEL's security solutions provide an effective means for

reducing electronic vulnerabilities in critical communications systems ranging

from serial to Ethernet and SCADA to engineering access. Securing systems

ranging from water treatment facilities to electric power transmission

infrastructure with SEL cybersecurity solutions ensures continued smart grid
