Who are you? Authentication by certificates 


Digital certificates have proved their worth as a strong means of authentication for decades. With IIoT taking center stage in industrial automation, machines need to be identified securely as well to stop illicit users or systems from sneaking in and potentially wreaking havoc in networks. X.509 certificates, coupled with communication protocols like OPC UA and hardware-based safe storage solutions like CmDongles, are ideal choices to meet the challenges of today.

Industrial Security: Safety Protects the Man from Machine, Security the Reverse


The Industrial Security Podcast, hosted by Andrew Ginter and Nate Nelson, of Waterfall Security Solutions, features leading experts who talk about ICS security, SCADA security standards, protection from cyberattacks, and more. During the interview, Marco Blume, Product Manager Embedded at Wibu-Systems, explored how intellectual property protection, safety, and cybersecurity work together in the discrete manufacturing sector. He addressed four key areas where smart industries could maintain the security of the machine-to-machine communications and protect the IP integral to the operations and integrity of the PLCs, sensors, and other connected devices: Software protection, license management, secure key storage, and certificate management.
