Perfect authentication is unachievable at the scales required for the smart grid, but we continue to design systems as if it had been achieved. Our ongoing research, using a viewpoint inspired by the concept of trust, along with results from decision theory, is attempting to provide a foundation for system design that explicitly addresses uncertainty of authentication. Although progress on the mathematical theory thus far is promising, a great deal more work is needed to understand how (or even whether) real-world behavior and experience can be modeled in the theory to make it useful in practice.
