Conceptual model for secure smart home energy management
Smart Home Energy Management (SHEM) systems is the main Internet of Things (IoT) application related to home energy control and consumption management. SHEM systems include subsystems which are used for monitoring, logging, control, management and alarms . Such subsystems might be potentially exposed to different kinds of security threats. Defining a security model for SHEM systems is a very complicated task due to its heterogeneous and dynamic structure. It contains millions or billions of objects that communicate with each other and with human beings. Furthermore, defining a security model for SHEM systems is not an easy task because of it is deployed in an open environment which makes the attackers’ job easier.
This study proposes a system design and architecture for secure SHEM systems based on game theory. It focuses on analyzing SHEM systems security vulnerabilities then selecting most effect defense methods based on game theory principles. An objective of this study was to propose conceptual model for secure smart home energy management.

Submission of an original manuscript to the Journal of Computing Technologies and Creative Content (JTeC) will be taken to mean that it represents original work not previoussly published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication. All submitted articles that are published by JTeC cannot be published anywhere by the authors unless with the permission by JTeC Editors. JTeC reserves the right to the publications of the articles it published, and reserves the right to reuse the articles elsewhere for academic purposes, while still retaining the names of the original authors with the original articles.
JTeC takes the stance that the publication of scholarly research is meant to disseminate knowledge and in a not-for-profit regime, benefits neither publisher nor author financially. It sees itself as having obligation to its author and to society to make content available online now that the technology allows for such possibility.
