As a goal, we would like to guide realization of an security in energy system that is interoperable, by standardizing the meaning of secure data exchange and guide secure implementation of open source projects developing exchange (interfaces) based on these security standards. We focus on the business side of security as common understanding, trust and transparency of data used and data privacy is a fundamental part of the energy system of the future, regardless of geography.
The purpose of the Security WG is to have a center of gravity for discussions and thought leadership within the energy sector on software security, which will create the standard approach from software security as the industry evolves and the use of open source continues to grow. This will provide market education on pressing topics such as the software supply chain, which will ensure that solutions can be developed in a secure and safe manner. The group intends to work cross-functionally across LFE, but also bring in and leverage expertise from other groups such as CNCF.
