A Global Industry First: Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0 to Host Joint IIoT Security Demonstration at Hannover Messe 2017

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and Plattform Industrie 4.0 are pleased to announce their plans to host a joint demonstration at Hannover Messe, April 24-28, 2017, in Hannover, Germany, highlighting Industrial Internet security, interoperability and collaboration.

With the rise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0, manufacturers are adding more connected devices, sharing operational data with IT systems within both their own factories and businesses, as well as extending information exchange across their entire value chain. This increased digitization offers a host of benefits to manufacturers, their partners, suppliers and customers.

In a connected world, this robust connectivity amplifies the importance of security both within a single manufacturer’s plant and across every participant in the value chain. There is no single, homogeneous security environment; rather there are multiple companies and systems that need to work together.

The joint real-time demonstration at Hannover Messe shows how the IIC’s recently released Industrial Internet Security Framework and the concepts of secure cooperation in cross company environments developed by the Plattform Industrie 4.0 can be applied to solve this challenge. Mimicking a real-world, multi-vendor, distributed environment, the demonstration integrates Hannover Messe demos from over 20 IIC member companies and Plattform Industrie 4.0 partner companies respectively into a single security demonstration. It spans multiple booths at Hannover Messe and remote sites around the world.

The IIC and Plattform Industrie 4.0 have been collaborating for just over a year to combine the cross-domain approach of the IIC with Plattform Industrie 4.0’s focus on the manufacturing industry. The concept of this demonstration was launched only four short months ago.

The demonstration highlights how multiple unique, existing security systems can be consolidated in a set of interacting industrial security systems, leveraging products and technologies available today that demonstrate secure integration of existing systems without disrupting operations. Security events are shared across the entire ecosystem, letting each member in the value chain see all security events that are relevant to them.

“It’s really terrific to see so many global IIC members from multiple disciplines, working together with Plattform Industry 4.0 to achieve this industry first manufacturing-based real-time demo in a secure environment,” said John Tuccillo, Chair of the IIC Steering Committee, and Senior Vice President, Schneider Electric.

“The joint demonstration is an important milestone in our cooperation. It shows that the exchange between the partners creates practical and transferable solutions. We are very thankful to our Joint Technology Group Security for this successful work,” said Henning Banthien, General Secretary of the Plattform Industrie 4.0.

“Security is critical to industrial deployments and the Hannover Messe demonstration highlights the fact that deploying a robust industrial security monitoring solution in a heterogeneous environment across multiple companies and organizations can be achieved using today’s technology,” said Sven Schrecker, Co-Chair of the IIC Security Working Group and Chief Architect, IoT Security Solutions, Intel.

“Our work result illustrates: secure data exchange across domains can be done. This means a central precondition for secure cross-company value networks is met,” adds Michael Jochem, Robert Bosch GmbH and Chair of the Plattform Industrie 4.0 Working Group Security of Networked Systems.

Live Demonstration at the Hannover Messe
The central presentation can be found in Stands C24 and D24 of Hall 8 of Hannover Messe and live demonstrations can be found in many participating member stands and halls throughout the event, in other parts of Germany and in other parts of the world.

There will be a joint press conference on April 25, 2017 from 9 – 10 am CET at the Hannover Messe, Convention Center, Saal 15. You can join the live telephone conference via this link where you can submit written questions.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
