Re: I asked my supplier how the data was encrypted...

There is no encryption. A friend found one in a flat he moved into last month. We had a play with the meter and a GSM test set. We not only could provoke the thing to send whatever data we wanted it to send, but we could change the logging parameters - ie: the tariffs - at will.

You can be certain that at a strategically sensitive moment, the details of how to hack your Smart Meter will be widely published.........
