Perimeter-based defenses and threat detection technologies are not enough to defend against modern cyber attacks. Many smart city lighting, smart meters, surveillance systems, fire and safety systems, HVAC, thermostats, building scanners, lighting, elevators, and Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices are vulnerable due to a lack of strong cryptographic controls, including: multi-factor authentication, secure boot, secure update, and secure, encrypted communications.
Smart building technology manufacturers and building operators must ensure compliance with cybersecurity standards such as NIST 800-53, IEC 62443-3-3, and FIPS 140-2. Keeping up with these standards as well as emerging standards from the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and Industrie 4.0 can be challenging.
Mocana’s end-to-end security system is an FIPS 140-2 validated embedded cybersecurity software solution that ensures device trustworthiness and secure communications by giving industrial automation manufacturers, OEMs and critical infrastructure operators an easy way to harden electronic control units and controllers with multi-factor authentication and trust chaining, as well secure boot to validate the firmware, OS and applications.
