Upcoming Webinar: Security with CoreDX DDS: Protecting your Network from Attacks

April 6, 2022 - 10am MST

Industrial systems across all industries are connecting devices and components that have historically not been connected. Adding connectivity creates enormous opportunity from telematics and predictive maintenance to more intelligent operations. However, adding connectivity adds exposure to network-based attacks. These industrial systems share common connection requirements of reliability, scalability, and now, security. How are our software components connected? Do your connectivity protocols meet your reliability, scalability, and security requirements?

This presentation takes an in-depth look at Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications using CoreDX DDS, an implementation of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) standardized productivity protocol from the Object Management Group (OMG), with a focus on secure data communications. CoreDX DDS is a proven, mature protocol, with over 15 years of implementation history across military, industrial, medical, power, automotive, and IIoT industries. CoreDX DDS Secure includes state-of-the art technologies for end-to end secure data communications.

What attendees will learn:

  • Methods for securing connected devices
  • Benefits and Risks associated with connected systems
  • Benefits of using stanardized middleware to connect systems
  • Features of CoreDX DDS and the Data Distribution Service DDS standards

Who should attend:

  • Solutions Architects developing connected industrial devices and systems
  • Software and Systems Engineers building sophisticated distributed systems
  • Device manufacturers concerned with keeping connected devices secure

CoreDX DDS Tips & Tricks

Welcome to this month's edition of CoreDX DDS Tips & Tricks, where our engineers provide quick bits of information to help our customers.

This month is about making use of interfaces and interface_names configurations.

By default, CoreDX DDS will look for, and use, all available network interfaces. When your computer or device contains multiple network interfaces, consider configuring CoreDX DDS to use only the subset of interfaces needed for DDS communications. (This may be noly the 'localhost' interface, if all DDS communications are isolated to on-device).

Allowing CoreDX DDS to use multiple network interfaces results in larger discovery messages, and more traffic on the network as peers will send DDS messages to ALL advertised IP addresses.

CoreDX DDS Tips & Tricks are intended to be useful for engineering using CoreDX DDS. If you have any questions, please contact us here.

Interfaces and interface_names may be configured via environment variables, or via the CoreDX DDS transport API. Refer to the Programmer's Guide, Chapter 15 "CoreDX DDS Transport" for additional information.
