“It is critical for system engineers to address security issues at every layer, from the sensors and actuators, to the controllers and the connected operations and business systems,” said Julian Psaila, Director, Marketing, General Purpose Unit, at Renesas Electronics America. “Although traditional IT-endpoint security and network-monitoring solutions protect IT business applications, such solutions won’t work for the embedded devices closest to the physical systems, which must be protected against cyberattacks by integrating security directly into the devices themselves.”
“Minimising vulnerabilities requires specialized security software,” said Alan Grau, CEO of Icon Labs. “To support enterprise security standards, embedded devices must incorporate the following key features: secure boot code, secure application updates, tightly controlled authentications, and secure communication protocols.”
The white paper covers new IIoT security platforms, as well as access control, security protocols, asymmetric and symmetric encryption, hardware security modules, intrusion detection, secure boot, secure firmware update, Data at Rest (DAR) Protection, and security management & visibility.
