Cybersecurity configuration

Security configuration settings selected in ION Setup are applied to the meter and can be saved as a Security Configuration File (.scf). The security log file (SECURITY.LOG) contains the history of Security Configuration Files saved from ION Setup.

The security log and Security Configuration Files are saved to the C:\ProgramData\Schneider Electric\ION Setup\Security folder.

NOTE: The security log file can be changed by anyone with access to the ProgramData folder.

Recommendations to optimize cybersecurity in a protected environment:

  • Use Advanced Security mode.

  • Store your meter’s Security Configuration File (.scf) in a protected location.

  • Revenue-lock the meter, confirm it is revenue-locked and use anti-tamper sealing points before putting the meter into service. This helps prevent unauthorized access to the meter, parameter values and settings.
