Abstract: : Today digitalization is key of our lifestyle not only in cities but also in rural areas. Nowadays, Internet of Things (IoT) is adding feathers to this globalization. In this research paper we will discuss about the safety and security of one of the most popular applications in IoT, i.e, Smart Meter in Smart Grid. Especially about Smart Meter in Smart Grid, which is fundamental part of it. Smart Meter unlike traditional metering system bidirectional in nature. Thus they have two streams one for power flow and second is data collection, analysis and processing i.e, communication, this is done by communication channel. Assured, strong, high-end security must be designed to the communication network so that data cannot be tampered, manipulated or interrupted by outer world. Here we will apply a unique technique of cryptography by which a secure communication channel method using Genetic Algorithm can be designed. By implementing this technique we can ensure a safe communication between customer and utility company. Thus, provide security to the data flow.
