Cyber Security for Industrial Communications
With ViPNet Coordinator for MICA, you can protect industrial communications by encrypting the data securely and controlling it - both for the MICA application container and external systems.
The modular principle of MICA allows you to implement a variety of scenarios for machine data registration and processing. With an intelligent security component by ViPNet added as an extension, MICA also ensures the secure data exchange.
The ViPNet software used as a MICA container acts as a virtual security gateway for other application containers on the same device. ViPNet intercepts, encrypts, and reliably forwards the data sent out by applications to the recipient, which is also protected. The recipient’s location is not important. It can be another machine at the same location or another object for data processing that works in a remote network. The communication is always direct, without involving an upper-level system. This principle enables especially many options for a secure vertical and horizontal data transfer in distributed and heterogeneous environments.
If the ViPNet software is the only container in MICA, the device acts as a security gateway for external objects. MICA can be successfully applied, for example, in charging infrastructures for e-car users.
