Over the last decade, Internet of Things (IoTs) have brought radical changes to the means and forms ofcommunication for monitoring and control of a large number of applications including Smart Grid (SG).Traditional energy networks have been modernized to SGs to boost the energy industry in the context ofefficient and effective power management, performance, real-time control and information flow usingtwo-way communication between utility provides and end-users. However, integrating two-way communicationin SG comes at the cost of cyber security vulnerabilities and challenges. In the context of SG,node compromise is a severe security threat due to the fact that a compromised node can significantlyimpact the operations and security of the SG network. Therefore, in this chapter, Key Management Schemefor Communication Layer in the Smart Grid (KMS-CL-SG) has proposed. In order to achieve a secureend-to-end communication we assign a unique key to each node in the group.
