The US Power Industry is in the process of overhauling the Power Grid to make it more secure, reliable, and available. The IT systems that comprise a major part of this change need to address a number of security and management challenges for the data generated by power systems and for resources consumed by distributed applications. In this work we leverage the technologies developed by the Computational Grid to address these challenges. We identify striking similarities between the systems and use these similarities to suggest ways of addressing challenging problems; e.g., securing inter-control center communications and power grid infrastructures, and managing data and resources at control centers.
