The Industrial Internet Security Concerns

Twin Oaks Computing's Nina Tucker will spoke at IoT Evolution East in Orlando this past January. Watch her introduction here.

Abstract: Identity theft happens despite attempts to protect personal information, and it can be a devastating event for the individual. Cyber-attacks occur similarly in an enterprise or its Industrial Control System (ICS) architecture, also delivering devastating impacts for the success of the business. This session will address the current state, outline what technical solutions can be identified, either available now or under development, to close the gaps regarding cyber security.

Upcoming Webinar: Ensuring Security in the Age of the Connected Device

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 your 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 the Dada Distribution Service (DDS) standardized connectivity protocol from the Object Management Group (OMG), with a focus on secure data communications. DDS is a proven, mature protocol, with over 10 years of implementation history across military, industrial, medical, power, automotive, and IIoT industries. The DDS Security specification includes state-of-the-art technologies for end-to-end secure data communications.

Attendees will learn:

  • Methods for securing connected devices
  • Benefits and Risks associated with connected systems
  • Benefits of using standardized middleware to connect systems
  • Features of 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

IIC 2018 Q1 Member Meeting Highlights

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) members met for the first time in 2018 in Reston, VA. earlier this month. The IIC steering committee announced its 2018 goals, including improving transparency and communication of research and deliverables.

If you are a solution architect for any industrial application, take a moment to read through some of the architectural, security, and connectivity frameworks publicly provided by the IIC. Documents can be found here.

Nina Tucker, VP of Technology for Twin Oaks Computing, is a co-chair of the IIC's Distributed Data Interoperability and Management (DDIM) task Group and is involved in the Connectivity, Edge Computing, and Architecture Task Groups, as well as the Security Working Group. Feel free to contact Nina with any questions related to the IIC or it's deliverables.

DDS Meet and Greet with Demo in Reston, VA

Monday, March 19, 2018 from 5-7pm - You are cordially invited to join Twin Oaks Computing's Nina Tucker and the rest of the DDS Platform Special Interest Group co-chairs for a free and informal Meet & Greet to learn more about the latest developments in DDS and its relevance in today's connected world. There will be a multi-vendor live demonstration of interoperability highlighting the DDS Security Standard. The demonstration includes an overview of the configuration options available in the standardized DDS Security plug-ins and presents some example scenarios to show how the DDS Security standard supports the key topics of Identification, Access Control, Integrity, and Confidentiality.
