Power substations use Generic Object Oriented Substation Events (GOOSE) protocol [IEC-61850-8-1] to distribute control information to groups of devices using a multicast strategy. Sources within the power substations also distribute IEC 61850-9-2 sampled values data streams [IEC-61850-9-2]. The IEC 62351-9 standard [IEC-62351-9] describes key management methods for the security methods protecting these IEC 61850 messages, including methods of device authentication and authorization, and methods of policy and keying material

              Group Domain of Interpretation (GDOI) Protocol                 Support for IEC 62351 Security Services


   The IEC 61850 power utility automation family of standards describes    methods using Ethernet and IP for distributing control and data    frames within and between substations.  The IEC 61850-90-5 and IEC    62351-9 standards specify the use of the Group Domain of    Interpretation (GDOI) protocol (RFC 6407) to distribute security    transforms for some IEC 61850 security protocols.  This memo defines    GDOI payloads to support those security protocols.
