IIoT Endpoint Security – The Model in Practice Secure endpoints, namely devices that employ both computation and communications resources and expose functional capabilities, are your first line of defense against cyberattacks. What is your first line of defense against cyberattacks? Secure endpoints! Endpoints are everywhere in the IIoT landscape. Without proper security, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems are not trustworthy, putting organizations, their missions and the greater public at increased risk. The viability of the IIoT depends on proper implementation of security to counter the growing and ever changing threats that are emerging.

Addressing this challenge is critical to the success of the Industrial IoT, Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet revolution. To that end, Industrial Internet Consortium members have developed a common security framework and an approach to assess cybersecurity in Industrial Internet of Things systems: The Industrial Internet Security Framework (IISF).

The editors of the IISF and security experts from the Industrial Internet Consortium will discuss the endpoint protection/security model and policy in its Industrial Internet Security Framework (IISF) document and present a real-world customer use case for an approach taken to secure an industrial system.

Watch the recording to learn:

  • Securing the IIoT and why it differs from securing the IoT
  • Important elements to consider in securing IIoT endpoints
  • The significance of endpoint data protection, physical security, root of trust, endpoint identity, access control, monitoring and analysis, secure configuration and management, and integrity protection

This webinar is part two in a series of monthly webinars offered by the Industrial Internet Consortium. Be sure to see the previous webinar, now available on-demand.

OPC UA Security: Native and Add-on Solutions for the Rise of Smart Factories OPC UA is a multi-platform, plug & play Information Exchange Standard that is facilitating the convergence of OT and IT. CodeMeter Embedded fully supports the defined Security Profiles, configurations and provides even stronger security. The Industrial Internet of Things has set the stage for the convergence of Operations Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT), that is, the plant floor and the higher-level IT infrastructure. One of the many aspects of this transitional journey is represented by M2M communications.

OPC UA is a multi-platform, plug & play Information Exchange Standard for industrial smart automation and cloud networking. It standardizes communications within machines, between machines, and from machines to smart systems, securely networked with IoT architectures.

As a member of the OPC Foundation, Wibu-Systems has been an early adopter of the OPC UA standard in Industrie 4.0 projects like IUNO, the German national reference project for IT security in Industrie 4.0, S4SmartPro, the key finder prototype production line of SmartFactoryKL, and OpSit, the optimal use of smart items technologies in healthcare.

As recently pointed out in the Industrial Internet Security Framework as well, it is endpoints, i.e. the device or cloud-based components that have interfaces for network communication, that are particularly vulnerable in a world of cyber-physical systems connected to open networks. The Unified Automation ANSI C based and High Performance OPC UA SDKs, powered by CodeMeter Embedded, fully support the OPC UA defined Security Profiles and configurations and provide even stronger security for modern M2M communications. Secret information, like RSA private keys, certificates, and trust lists, is stored in a hardware secure element and protected from theft and tampering attacks. In a time when intellectual property is shifting in the value chain from hardware to software, manufacturers now also have new opportunities to capitalize on their software and offer feature-based, time-based, version-based, or pay-per-use models to scale up their offerings, expand their market share, and produce recurrent revenues.

Join Thomas J. Burke, President and Executive Director of the OPC Foundation, and Oliver Winzenried, CEO and co-founder of Wibu-Systems, for an insightful conversation on:

In this one-hour session, we are going to navigate you through a journey of exploration that will touch upon:

  • The elements of innovation in smart manufacturing
  • The connection requirements for M2M in the IIoT age
  • The building blocks of the OPC Unified Architecture
  • Use cases that are accelerating the rise of Smart Factories
  • The integration of CodeMeter in the OPC UA standard
  • The OPC UA security extension for endpoints

Working with Windows, Linux, macOS, or Android? With minimal embedded controllers up to massive cloud infrastructures? OPC UA and CodeMeter are equally suited, scalable, and secure, and most of all integrated in a streamlined fashion to provide the ultimate technology in access control, authentication, and encryption.

Embedded security in ARM-based microcontrollers CodeMeter µEmbedded extends the security features to Programmable Logic Controllers and microcontrollers. The integration with the XMC4000 microcontroller from Infineon Technologies offers software developers the ability to protect and license their code CodeMeter µEmbedded from Wibu-Systems enhances the standard tool chain to provide secure firmware updates or functional upgrades in embedded systems built around the XMC4000 microcontrollers made by Infineon Technologies. This ARM Cortex™ family features a huge set of connectivity peripherals and is designed for controls of industrial applications, especially in harsh environments. It predominantly addresses five target markets: factory automation, building automation, transportation, power and energy, and home and professional applications. What these have in common is the many and diverse security challenges they face.

With CodeMeter µEmbedded, software developers of field programmable gate arrays and microcontrollers can protect their application code and intellectual property against reverse engineering and implement a license control system. The technology represents a practical answer to common security needs: How to protect intellectual property that is shared with a contractor from cloning, how to provide secure firmware upgrades in the field, how to make sure that only authorized devices are built in factory machines, or how to enable additional functionality in a microcontroller that is already operational in the field.

The tools for the protection of the application code are fully integrated in the development platform DAVE™. The user-friendly dialogue frontend of CodeMeter µEmbedded created for the DAVE plugin is a great help also to those developers who have little cryptography skills in their arsenal. In one single dialogue, they are able to input all required security settings to guarantee the effective and thorough integrity protection of their machine code.

Note:Product branding was updated since the webcast took place; please note that:

  • µCodeMeter has become CodeMeter µEmbedded
  • μCmE has become CmµE
  • μExEngine has become ExEngine
  • μCmActLicense has become CmActLicense
  • μExProtector has become ExProtector
