This document provides a plan to test remote terminal units (RTUs) and gateways against the baseline security requirements in DA/SA-301-2022 Security requirements for RTUs and gateways (version 2022v0.1).
When the requirements are used, the need arises to evaluate the RTU or gateway against the requirements. Most procurement processes include acceptance testing to make sure that the selected RTU or gateway meets all requirements. This document provides a standardized test plan to evaluate the RTU or gateway against the security requirements.
By standardizing the test plan, the test results can be more easily shared between grid operators. The vendor of the RTU or gateway can perform security tests according to the test plan and then use the test report to show compliance in all tenders that use the security requirements. This reduces the cost of testing and can give grid operators assurance in advance that there are RTUs and gateways meeting the requirements.
