Termineter: Penetration Testing of Smart Meters

Termineter is a Python framework which provides a platform for the security testing of smart meters. It implements the C1218 and C1219 protocols for communication over an optical interface. Currently supported are Meters using C1219-2007 with 7-bit character sets. This is the most common configuration found in North America. Termineter communicates with Smart Meters via a connection using an ANSI type-2 optical probe with a serial interface.

Benefits:

Regular testing of your smart meters will help identify new vulnerabilities, risks, and changes in your environment. This assessment gives you a picture of both the physical and logical controls currently protecting these devices. This will also facilitate continual compliance with regulatory requirements.

How it Works:

Terminter utilises the C1218 and C1219 protocols for communication over an optical interface. Currently supported are Meters using C1219-2007 with 7-bit character sets.

This is the most common configuration found in North America. Termineter communicates with Smart Meters via a connection using an ANSI type-2 optical probe with a serial interface.

Users must have general knowledge of the meter’s internal workings in order to use Termineter proficiently.
