Internet Consortium (IIC) and Plattform
Industrie 4.0 are pleased to announce their plans to host a joint
demonstration at Hannover
Messe, April 24-28, 2017, in Hannover, Germany, highlighting
Industrial Internet security, interoperability and collaboration.
This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here:
With the rise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie
4.0, manufacturers are adding more connected devices, sharing
operational data with IT systems within both their own factories and
businesses, as well as extending information exchange across their
entire value chain. This increased digitization offers a host of
benefits to manufacturers, their partners, suppliers and customers.
In a connected world, this robust connectivity amplifies the importance
of security both within a single manufacturer's plant and across every
participant in the value chain. There is no single, homogeneous security
environment; rather there are multiple companies and systems that need
to work together.
The joint real-time demonstration at Hannover Messe shows how the IIC's
recently released Industrial
Internet Security Framework and the concepts of secure cooperation
in cross company environments developed by the Plattform Industrie 4.0
can be applied to solve this challenge. Mimicking a real-world,
multi-vendor, distributed environment, the demonstration integrates
Hannover Messe demos from over 20 IIC member companies and Plattform
Industrie 4.0 partner companies respectively into a single security
demonstration. It spans multiple booths at Hannover Messe and remote
sites around the world.
The IIC and Plttform Industrie 4.0 have been collaborating for just
over a year to combine the cross-domain approach of the IIC with
Plattform Industrie 4.0's focus on the manufacturing industry. The
concept of this demonstration was launched only four short months ago.
The demonstration highlights how multiple unique, existing security
systems can be consolidated in a set of interacting industrial security
systems, leveraging products and technologies available today that
demonstrate secure integration of existing systems without disrupting
operations. Security events are shared across the entire ecosystem,
letting each member in the value chain see all security events that are
relevant to them.
"It's really terrific to see so many global IIC members from multiple
disciplines, working together with Plattform Industry 4.0 to achieve
this industry first manufacturing-based real-time demo in a secure
environment," said John Tuccillo, Chair of the IIC Steering Committee,
and Senior Vice President, Schneider Electric.
"The joint demonstration is an important milestone in our cooperation.
It shows that the exchange between the partners creates practical and
transferable solutions. We are very thankful to our Joint Technology
Group Security for this successful work," said Henning Banthien, General
Secretary of the Plattform Industrie 4.0.
"Security is critical to industrial deployments and the Hannover Messe
demonstration highlights the fact that deploying a robust industrial
security monitoring solution in a heterogeneous environment across
multiple companies and organizations can be achieved using today's
technology," said Sven Schrecker, Co-Chair of the IIC Security Working
Group and Chief Architect, IoT Security Solutions, Intel.
"Our work result illustrates: secure data exchange across domains can be
done. This means a central precondition for secure cross-company value
networks is met," adds Michael Jochem, Robert Bosch GmbH and Chair of
the Plattform Industrie 4.0 Working Group Security of Networked Systems.
Live Demonstration at the Hannover MesseThe central
presentation can be found in Stands C24 and D24 of Hall 8 of Hannover
Messe and live demonstrations can be found in many participating member
stands and halls throughout the event, in other parts of Germany and in
other parts of the world.
There will be a joint press conference on April 25, 2017 from 9 - 10 am
CET at the Hannover Messe, Convention Center, Saal 15. You can join the
live telephone conference via this link
where you can submit written questions.
