Secure data integrity for Industrial Legacy systems

Industrial legacy system security done right

The most serious threat to industrial systems is external access to control systems. Unwanted access to the human/machine interface (HMI) can allow third parties full control of a system. One way to breach a system is to gain access to the Ethernet connections between an industrial company’s headquarters and the remote systems by means of wiretapping. Wiretapping makes it possible to manipulate data traversing an Ethernet connection if this connection is not protected.

Secure data integrity for industrial legacy systems

Zybersafe provides the market’s most innovative system for encryption of data for industrial companies. As a leading cyber security company we know that securing data in motion is paramount – data sent through fiber lines is not automatically protected.

Zybersafe provides:

  • Hardware-based Layer 2 encryption of data in motion over Ethernet connections
  • Plug-in and encrypt solution
  • No local IT skills needed
  • Highest commercially available encryption level, AES 256-GCM

The threat to industrial legacy systems

The biggest threat to industrial systems is external access to control systems. Unwanted access to human/machine interfaces (HMI) could allow third parties full control of systems. One way of breaching a system is to gain access to the Ethernet connections between an industrial company HQ and its remote system by wiretapping. By means of wiretapping it will be possible to manipulate data traversing an Ethernet connection if the connection is not protected.

Protecting data integrity

A common challenge for industrial companies with multiple locations is to support industrial systems, i.e. SCADA systems, PLCs etc. that control:

  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC)
  • Public address & general alarm systems (PA/GA)
  • Video surveillance systems
  • Electronic or mechanical systems

Protection of data integrity in relation to data connections to systems that do not support application-based encryption: Industrial systems are designed for longevity and may not be designed with modern cyber security concerns in mind. Old systems do not support application-based encryption, which means that industrial companies need other means to protect the remote systems.

Zybersafe hardware encryption

Zybersafe provides protection of the integrity of data that traverses the Ethernet connections between HQs and remote systems. By placing Zybersafe hardware encryption units at the end points of links, all data will be encrypted to meet the highest commercially available standard, AES 256-GCM, and the integrity link will be protected from injection, modification, and replay.

Zybersafe applies Layer 2 encryption, which protects Layer 2 and all layers above. 99.9% of all network attacks are directed against Layer 3-7. Zybersafe’s solution is hardware-based and is secure by design so that there is no human access to encryption keys at any time, which means that the keys cannot be shared by mistake or due to malicious intent.
