The deployment of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) technology significantly increases the attack surface that utilities have to protect. As a result, there is a critical need for efficient monitoring solutions to supplement protective measures and keep the infrastructure secure. This document investigates current industrial and academic efforts to address the challenge of detecting security events across the range of AMI networks and devices. The goal of this study is to help utilities and vendors to understand intrusion detection requirements, gaps in existing approaches, and research problems that need to be solved to build and deploy a scalable and comprehensive security monitoring solution.
