AccessHub provides vendors of different IoT and Industry 4.0 equipment with an ability to connect their devices to the SecureZone for Manufacturing platform directly. For this purpose, we do propose the AccessHub Middleware with a pre-integrated SecureZone Agent functionality and many cybersecurity and data protection features available via simple API.
Strong Mutual Authentication, Data Encryption and Digital Signing are required and mandatory to prevent and mitigate most of the cybersecurity risks, but this is not enough since the following functionality should be also established:
- Truly random private keys generation inside all connected devices
- Keys protection from illegal access, usage and different threats incl. tamper resistance
- Integrity and authenticity of the firmware
- Fully automated certificates management (CSR processing, Enrolment, Revocation, Renewal, etc.)
- Strong mutual authentication of all devices, people and platforms
- Adaptive encryption and signing algorithms (military-grade vs lightweight)
- Blockchains and smart contracts compatibility
- Secure firmware update
- GDPR compliant
AccessHub Middleware implements all these functions and more!
