- Why PKI Matters for the IIoT
Published May 2017
The Industrial Internet of Things can transform manufacturing, transportation, power generation and other industries with greater automation, new services and more efficient resource allocation. These advancements depend on data generated by IIoT devices now being built and deployed. But the potential cannot be realized if the data produced by the devices cannot be trusted, and that requires stronger security. Icon Labs' Alan Grau and Dave West discuss the role of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), a set of technologies and services for managing the authentication of computer systems. (6 pages)
- Device Security for the Industrial Internet of Things
Published August 2016
The Industrial Internet of Things is driving investment in new technologies and manufacturing methodologies as companies rush to capitalize on a predicted $14 trillion economic gain. A wave of new connected devices is the result, many of which are small endpoint devices running real-time operating systems. In this white paper, Renesas' Carl Stenquist and Wil Florentino and Icon Labs' Alan Grau describe security requirements for IIoT devices and the solutions currently available for securing them.
