July 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Spencer McIntyre, a 2010 UAT graduate  recently helped to create a tool called Termineter that helps security auditors test the vulnerability of smart meters. SecureState is the smart grid researcher that released Terminter; the free open-source hacking tool. Termineter is a framework that allows users to assess the security of Smart Meter Utility meters over the optical interface. This is the first framework designed to give authorized individuals access to manipulate and test the security of smart meters and is an open source tool available for anyone to download. The tool will be demonstrated this week at the BSides conference in Las Vegas.  The framework of Termineter is written in python and implements C12.18 and C12.19 protocols for communication.

Spencer graduated from the University in 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Network Security. He is currently a member of SecureState’s Research and Innovation team and was a key figure in developing and releasing the Termineter tool.
