Abstract: With the promotion of electric power reforms, Power plants are at a high risk associated with potential disclosure of privacy data. They should overcome various kinds of threats like SQL injection Denial of Service(DOS), Cross Site Scripting(XSS), Phishing and Malware. In this paper we propose a secure and trustworthy method to protect power plant in which data is stored in Block chain instead of general centralized databases in which data is stored in distributed blocks across the network after validation.
