Information technology is the backbone of the smart grid, where all networks like generation, transmission, distribution, and customer components are connected to each other. Connectivity between these components offers many advantages including consumer�s ability to manage their electricity consumption rates and electricity bills etc. Smart grid also provides operators great extent of system visibility and control over electricity services, supervision and control of generating units, power quality improvements and reduced fuel cost etc. Highly connected infrastructure in smart grid threats the reliable operation of grid, especially in terms of cyber security. In automated system, where control actions can be generated by a single command even from a great distance may lead complete shutdown of the whole system. Failure/disoperation of power service suspends all critical services. Therefore, the electrical grid becomes the most significant target for acts of vandalism and terrorism. So an extensive security against the cyber-attacks is required in smart grid environment as compare to traditional electricity grid, where almost all control actions were taken manually or with little use of local controllers. Therefore, with control atomization modulation of traditional energy supply system into a smart network requires a huge investment to develop security strategies as a safeguard for this critical infrastructure.
