IEC 62443 is the international series of standards for cyber security in industrial automation. Chapter 4-2 describes the requirements for safe components. Manufacturers of industrial components have the opportunity to develop information-secure components for Industry 4.0 applications.
After a successful audit by the DAkkS, the cyber security experts at the VDE Institute are now accredited to carry out tests in the area of cyber security for automation systems and can check the security of the implementation of components and prove it with a certificate.
With its tests and certifications, the VDE Institute supports the development of an information-secure and therefore trustworthy Industry 4.0.
