Icon Labs whitepaper – Why PKI Matters for the IIoT

22 May 2017

This new IoT security white paper explains PKI, Authentication, and Certificate Management – how they work, what they are, and how OEMs, manufacturers, and developers can implement the latest technical developments in PKI security technologies.

“OEMs building IIoT devices, and enterprises deploying IIoT networks must be proactive by ensuring the proper security capabilities are built into both the devices and the networks in which they operate,” says Alan Grau, President of Icon Labs. “Strong authentication of all devices within an IIoT network is a critical requirement for securing these networks.” 

Cyber-attacks against industrial control systems, water treatment plants, critical infrastructure, and other IIoT networks are on the rise as is the number of devices that hackers can target. As the number of devices grows, so does the range of opportunities to hack those devices, and subsequently alter the data. The bottom line is we now have a growing number of both targets and attacks, so we must put the cyber-security solution in place to protect these devices.

Just as cyber-attacks take many forms and exploit a wide range of vulnerabilities in the target device, so too is cyber-security multi-faceted. A fundamental, but often ignored, aspect of cyber-security for IIoT devices is strong authentication.
