Only when cyber security is taken into account in the design, companies can successfully participate in the digitization and avert damage from the beginning.
First, the lecture gives an overview of possible attack vectors especially in the production environment. It will be shown which measures correspond to the state-of-the-art and exist for self-protection. On the one hand, it explains what a data diode is and how it can help to increase the cyber security level by means of galvanic isolation and to allow a control of the communication flow without impairing the transparent data communication. The second proposed solution describes why a rendezvous server belongs to the modern remote maintenance concept and which properties it should have to be able to use it safely. Lastly, the influence of industrial firewalls is explained, which distinguishes them from conventional firewalls and why it is particularly important to ensure that the firewalls used are tailored to the automation environment.
