Hannover Messe 2015: Infineon Offers Key Technologies for Industry 4.0; Security for Networked Production
Munich and Hannover, Germany – April 14, 2015 – Microelectronics is the key enabling technology for Industry 4.0, the networked production of the future. At the Hannover Messe Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) demonstrates how it supports a secure Industry 4.0.
Infineon’s security chips improve system integrity and data security in networked production. In collaboration with partner companies, Infineon demonstrates security solutions “Made in Germany” that better protect networked production within a single site or within a fab network across various locations.
Working with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied and Integrated Security (AISEC), Infineon has developed a solution that protects PLC (programmable logic controller)-based industrial automation systems from unauthorized access and manipulation due to malware or incorrect software updates – the last being an aspect that will gain importance as remote services for industrial facilities grow more common. Fraunhofer AISEC and Infineon exhibit their solution in hall 8 at booth D08 of the German Engineering Association VDMA.
Secured end-to-end communication between various sites in a production network is presented in hall 8 by Deutsche Telekom at booth F19, and by Wibu-Systems at booth D05. This security solution was co-developed by Deutsche Telekom, Hirschmann, Infineon, and Wibu-Systems, and was first demonstrated at the German IT Summit 2014.
