‘Smart manufacturing’ involves a transition to digital manufacturing- a reliance on a range of technology platforms to help streamline and accelerate production processes. In general, IIoT systems span IT, operational technology and core business functions- essential for generating sustainable growth from innovation and initiatives, requiring highest security in data and software governance and interoperability without restricting process agility and openness.
Cryptographic Identity for Components
In a networked production environment, each component has to "know and trust" each other, and "identify" themselves with their digital identity - cryptographic techniques enable strong encryption and qualified identity validation. The route to secure identity commences during the manufacturing process when components are enhanced through cryptographic key injection.
