The city of Miami and several commercial partners plan to rollout a "Smart Grid" citywide electrical infrastructure by the year 2011. This rollout was announced on the heels of news that foreign agents have infiltrated existing electrical infrastructure and that recent penetration tests have uncovered numerous vulnerabilities in the proposed technologies. Simultaneously, the National Institute for Standards in Technology ("NIST") has recently released a roadmap for producing smart grid standards.
