With the adoption of the IIoT comes a wave of new connected devices, many of which are small endpoint devices. These systems often perform critical functions in our factories, electric grid, and other essential elements of modern society.
System engineers face challenges today when developing IIoT-capable, network-connected embedded devices. Besides the usual issues, they must deal with security issues, encryption standards, networking protocols and new technologies.
This in-depth article describes security requirements for IIoT devices and solutions to secure them.
