  • Abstract Smart grid is an advanced electrical grid equipped with communication capability which is utilized to improve the efficiency, reliability, and sustainability of electricity services. Countries within Europe, North America and East Asia are undergoing a transformation from an antiquated infrastructure to the smart grid. However, some of problems arise due to the security and privacy issues of smart grid. Since smart meters and a grid operator can interact through its communication channel, there is a possibility that a hacker can hack into the system to steal information or even cut off the electricity service. Moreover, people are protesting and refusing to use smart meter since it enables the grid operator to perform frequent meter reading which unveils the customers’ private energy usage information that could be abused.
    To cope with the privacy issue, we proposed an enhanced version of aggregation protocol from Garcia-Jacobs protocol where our protocol protects not only customers’ energy consumption information but also the consumption information of a neighborhood. Furthermore, we proposed a novel privacy preserving billing protocol based on Priced Oblivious Transfer (POT) protocol which guarantees the grid operator to get the correct amount of money without knowing the individual energy consumption of the customers. Additionally, we also implement our proposed protocols.
