March 29, 2017 – Mocana Corporation, a provider of mission-critical IoT security solutions for the emerging digital industrial ecosystem, announced the availability of the Mocana IoT Security Platform, a full-stack security solution to protect industrial IoT devices, industrial clouds and device-to-cloud communications. The company also announced capabilities designed to give industrial manufacturers the power to leverage hardware-based security technologies and automated digital certificate management to harden devices and effectively enable scalable IoT deployments.
Hundreds of companies, including Schneider Electric, Wind River, Intel, Infineon Technologies AG, DDC-I and GE have integrated Mocana’s cybersecurity software into industrial control systems, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), cloud platforms, remote terminal units (RTUs), intelligent electronic devices (IEDs), device gateways and controllers. With the new platform, customers and partners are further protecting IoT devices and industrial clouds against sophisticated cyberattacks that are shutting down power grids, forcing massive segments of the Internet offline and threatening the safety of critical infrastructures.
The Mocana platform provides a solution for securing IoT systems from the endpoint, to the gateway, to the cloud and back again. The platform includes an inside-out hardening approach that ensures endpoint and gateway trustworthiness, data and device integrity, authentication and confidentiality. The Mocana IoT Security Platform provides software capabilities, a set of APIs and a path to utilize Mocana’s planned management and analytics capabilities.
The Mocana IoT Security Platform builds upon the Mocana Security of Things Platform and includes updated features:
- Mocana Trust Engine: A vendor-agnostic trust abstraction layer that allows device manufacturers to take advantage of security chip technologies, such as the Infineon OPTIGA Trusted Platform Module (TPM), ARM TrustZone, Intel SGX and Intel EPID.
- Automated Certificate Management: Support for automated certificate management using Enrollment over Secure Transport (EST) and trust chaining to ensure a lifecycle of trust for secure boot, secure firmware updates and trusted operations.
- Full Stack Platform: The full-stack architecture and strong cryptographic engine ensure authentication, integrity, confidentiality, visibility and control for devices, gateways and cloud applications.
- API: The software abstracts the underlying hardware, enabling applications to call cryptographic functions through a single API. OpenSSL-compatibility interface allows customers to replace OpenSSL with a lightweight defense-grade crypto library.
Mocana is trusted by more than 200 manufacturers and IoT companies, and its software is integrated with more than 70 chipsets, 30 operating systems and supports networking environments such as SSL, SSH, multicast, IPsec and wireless. Mocana plans to introduce management and analytics capabilities later this year to provide a new level of visibility and control into IoT devices.
