Open Source Smart Meter Hacking Framework Released

wiredmikey (1824622) writes "A researcher specializing in smart grids has released an open-source tool designed to assess the security of smart meters. Dubbed “Termineter”, the framework would allow users, such as grid operators and administrators, to test smart meters for vulnerabilities.

Termineter uses the serial port connection that interacts with the meter's optical infrared interface to give the user access to the smart meter's inner workings. The user interface is much like the interface used by the Metasploit penetration testing framework. It relies on modules to extend its testing capabilities.

Spencer McIntyre, a member of SecureState's Research and Innovation Team, is scheduled to demonstrate Termineter in a session "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Smart Meter," at Security B-Sides Vegas on July 25. The Termineter Framework can be downloaded here."
