Atos secures Smart Meter data with a “security by design” approach
19 March 2019
Atos was selected by a Group of local electricity and gas distributors to ensure the security of smart meter data through encryption. Thanks to its innovative "security by design" approach, Atos ensures security as close to the data as possible, directly in the hardware. All data collected, at every stage of the process, are encrypted using a set of encryption keys which are managed by Crypt2pay Hardware Security Modules (HSM). These HSM are also installed on the meter manufacturer side.
