This paper proposes a local electricity trading market and provides a comprehensive security analysis of this market. It first presents a market for electricity trading among individual users, and describes the different entities and the interactions among them. Based on this market model and the interactions, the paper analyses security problems and potential privacy threats imposed on users, which leads to the specification of a set of security and privacy requirements. These requirements can be used to guide the future design of secure local electricity trading markets or to perform a risk assessment of such markets
