In the smart grid, smart meters play an important role in keeping a real-time balance between energy production and energy consumption. The advanced metering infrastructure is responsible of collecting, storing, analyzing and providing metering data from smart meters to the authorized parties, and also carrying commands, requests, messages and software updates from the authorized parties to the smart meters. As such, advanced metering infrastructure is one of the important components of the smart grid, and securing it is a prerequisite for guaranteeing a large acceptance and deployment of the smart grid.
