Integrating information network into power system is the key for realizing the vision of smart grid, but also introduces many security problems. Moreover, smart grid is an attractive target for various hackers with diversified motivations, e.g. unethical customers may want to modify their meter readings to evade the electric charge; malicious users are able to extract the behaviors of household by eaves-dropping the communications of smart meters. Wireless communication offers the benefits of low cost, rapid deployment, shared communication medium and mobility at the same time, it causes many security and privacy challenges.
