Secure IIoT applications need secure application code

IIRA? Or RAMI 4.0? Both Demand High Quality Software

Mark Richardson, working for LDRA, an expert in the development of real-time embedded software, is presenting a paper on Secure IIoT Applications and why they need Secure Application Code at the SC2 conference in Eindhoven, October 2, 2017.


The ability to securely separate domains is a well-publicized factor in adhering to the principles of either the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA) or the Reference Architectural Model for Industrie 4.0 (RAMI 4.0). This talk argues that such separation technologies make a welcome contribution, but that the application code must also be secure if adequate protection is to be achieved. It will go on to discuss why the adherence to process standards such as IEC 61508 can provide a path to the fulfilment of security and safety requirements, and how an integrated tool suite eases the adoption of such standards.

Benefit and special features

This presentation introduces an approach to the development of high quality code which is very familiar to those working in the safety critical sphere, but less so for those developing connected applications. The content is designed to show why simply adhering to the prescribed architectures will still result in a flawed system unless the code quality is also high.
