Electrical grid cybersecurity laboratory

Laboratorio de Ciberseguridad en Redes Eléctricas

The power grid cybersecurity laboratory provides a controllable, secure environment in which new cybersecurity capabilities incorporated into IEDs can be installed and tested.

The laboratory also simulates cybersecurity incidents and makes it possible to test advanced solutions for detecting and protecting against intruders.


Our laboratory has the following facilities:

  • IEC 61850 primary substation.
  • Control centre with an IEC 60870-5-104 SCADA and LDAP and NTP servers
  • Industrial protocols: IEC 60870-5-104, IEC 61850, DNP3, IEC 60870-5-104, LDAP (LDAPS), NTP (NTPS), FTPS, Telnet, SSH, WS and others.

We have a variety of ethical hacking tools, including an intrusion detection system (SOTER), and a hacking toolbox containing a set of hacking tools to simulate different types of cyberattacks such as:

  • Denial of service (DoS).
  • Man in the Middle.
  • Theft of credentials.

The laboratory makes it possible to carry out functional cybersecurity tests and provides the equipment required for validating the new cybersecurity capabilities required by current cybersecurity standards, such as IEC 62351, IEEE 1686 or IEC 62443.

We are part of the Basque Digital Innovation Hub cybersecurity node coordinated by the Basque Cybersecurity Centre.

Aimed at:

  • Manufacturers of IEDs and SCADAs.
  • Infrastructure operators.
  • Developers of cybersecurity solutions
