Hardware

ViPNet Security for Industrial and Embedded Solutions is a security solution that can be easily integrated into industrial automation control systems and M2M systems.

ViPNet SIES includes:

  • Field-level security solutions: ViPNet SIES Core and ViPNet SIES Pack cryptographic modules perform basic cryptographic operations for automation control system end hosts.
  • Automation control system top-level security solutions:
    • ViPNet SIES Server software offering high-performance basic cryptographic operations for SCADA servers, OPC servers, server-based data collection and monitoring systems, and HMI panels
    • ViPNet SIES HSM appliance for storage of key information and high-performance basic cryptographic operations for SCADA servers, OPC servers, server-based data collection and monitoring systems, and HMI panels.
  • ViPNet SIES Management Center. 

Use Cases

ViPNet SIES products are intended for the following systems:

  • Automated Process Control Systems
  • M2M Systems
  • IIOT
  • Automated Process Control Systems
  • Automated electric Power Metering Systems, Advanced Metering Infrastructure
  • Building Automation Systems
  • Building Management Control Systems
  • Transportation Management Systems
  • Energy Management Systems
  • Electronic Security Systems, Access Control Systems
  • Geolocation Systems
  • Robotics
  • Emergency Management Systems

Advantages

  • The ViPNet SIES solution, integrated into an automation control system, ensures information security at the data layer. The developer of the automation control system determines the volume of data that should be protected.
  • The developer of the automation control system determines the protected information processing logic and the way the automation control system responds to an information security breach.
  • Support of a large number of business information security scenarios that can be implemented in a ViPNet SIES-based automation control system.
  • ViPNet SIES supports various industrial interfaces, which allows you to integrate the cryptographic module into any automation control system without the need to modify the data flow topology.
  • Automation control systems are not intended to perform the initial configuration set up of the cryptographic features; they ensure the security of keys and maintain the infrastructure required for the cryptographic data protection tools.

ViPNet SIES is an integrated security solution creating a root of trust for automation control system and М2М elements. ViPNet SIES can implement the following information protections based on the root of trust and basic cryptographic operations: 

  • Identification (cryptosecure) of the protected host
  • Authentication of the protected host by other protected hosts
  • Authentication of the protected host by standard network tools (EAP, RADIUS, etc.)
  • Ensuring integrity (including non-repudiation) of the information transferred between protected hosts
  • Encryption of (a part of) the data transferred between protected hosts
  • Authentication of the commands and data transferred between protected hosts
  • Trusted booting of protected devices
  • Trusted software updates on protected devices
  • Secure remote access to protected hosts, including from mobile devices
  • A “black box” on the protected device (to store critical information on operation of the protected device)
