This paper proposes an Energy Theft Traceback Protocol(ETTP) based on Logging and Marking that can trace Energy Theft back in Smart Grid Environment. The ETTP consists of the following three phases. First, it classifies Energy Theft Type into Measurement Rejection and Data Fabrication by generating an Energy Theft Tree. Second, it detects an Energy Theft by using the Energy Theft Tree. Finally, it trace an Energy Theft back by using the Logging Table of a Router and the Marking Information of a Packet. The result of its simulation shows that the Detection Ratio of Energy Theft is estimated at 92% and the Success Ratio of Energy Theft Traceback at 93%. Therefore, the ETTP not only reduces such risk factors as Forgery and Tampering about Billing information but also provides safe and reliable Smart Grid environment.
