Member Supported Innovation and Development

The DNP Users Group supports our user community and the industry by enhancing and promoting the Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3), also known as IEEE Std 1815TM. Our members include utilities, suppliers, consultants, and individuals. Many of our initiatives support greater interoperability between supplier’s products and systems and/or enhance cyber security. On-going refinements also add new features and time saving capabilities which are then included in the next update of IEEE Std 1815 TM. Our growing library of Application Notes, Security Notices, and Technical Bulletins provide essential information for our members. The leadership team and Technical Committee provide periodic educational opportunities including tutorials, white papers, and conference presentations. The Test Management Committee supports our large vendor community with conformance testing review services. The DNP Users Group is a California nonprofit mutual benefit Corporation, operating pursuant to United States IRS code 501(c)(6).


The Standard

The latest version of the standard, IEEE Std 1815TM-2012,  was released Oct. 12, 2012. The updated standard contains many changes, including DNP3 Secure Authentication v5, which defines a protocol mechanism that enables a DNP3 outstation/master to unambiguously determine that it is communicating with the correct user/outstation.

IEEE Std 1815-2012 and the accompanying DNP3 Specification Supplement 1 - Device Profile Template and XML Schema are now available for download to DNP Users Group members from the DNP3 Document Library.

In November 2021 a vote was commenced for all (primary) members of the DNP-UG.  Unfortunately, the vote response was small, and we later discovered some configuration issues with our email server.  Therefore, we are resending the material and reopening the voting period for another 30 days effective today and closing on March 27, 2022, at midnight Eastern time.  The following is slightly modified from the message in November in the tutorial has already occurred and the dates have changed.

If you have already voted, thank you and please disregard this message.

The Directors of the DNP Users Group are pleased to announce that our 2022 AGM will occur on Thursday, April 21, 2022 at 4PM Eastern.  Please plan to attend.  Our AGM agenda includes updates on the activities of our four active committees/task forces as well as business topics. There is a LOT happening with the DNP-UG!

The Directors of the DNP Users Group are pleased to announce that our 2021 AGM will occur on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 4PM Eastern.  Please plan to attend.

<<If you know of others that need to see this announcement, please forward it.  Thank you!>>

<<If you have already renewed or joined for 2020, thank you!>>

On June 5, 2020 we posted an announcement called “DNP-UG COVID-19 Response”.  There have been 565 views of that post, so it was been widely read!  You can still read the post below. 

In essence, the post indicated that the UG would, upon request, extend website access for a further 90 days beyond the usual 30 days (120 days total) to July 31, 2020, for members unable to renew their memberships on time.  The message has clearly been received as we have seen a precipitous drop in membership renewals since that time. 

The problem now is that the level of renewals is far below a sustainable level for the UG.  For example, the membership fee income for October was approximately 1/10 our target level.
