Industrial Control Systems
There is a trend towards using IP networks to connect meters, switches, valves, levers and sensors that were previously connected by dedicated wires. One of the major challenges is developing a secure communications solution for control systems is that the devices have very little compute or memory. And often very little integrated network functionality.
Trusted Networking can be used to lock down access to IP based control systems by remotely verifying the boot process and application software before establishing network connectivity to back end application servers. The encrypted overlay architecture enables the deployment of control systems across heterogeneous network environments.
