Security for Smart Meters
The drive to introduce smart meters into the Dutch energy market has accelerated, thanks to the initiative shown by Enexis and a successful data encryption solution delivered by Atos.
Enexis is one of the leading players in the Netherlands energy market. Of the 7 million households in the country 2.7 million take their power from Enexis, which is both committed to the deployment of smart meters and has the scale and influence to make a real difference to the market.
Worldline’s combined hardware and software approach was chosen as the basis for the Enexis smart meter data security solution, now known as Cryptoserver, and work began on developing and delivering the solution in early 2012.
The successful development and implementation of Cryptoserver has demonstrated that secure and effective use of smart meters on a very large scale is a reality. Atos and
Worldline have made a vital contribution to our roll-out of smart meters and we are certain that the cryptoserver solution can and will be used much more widely in the future.
