Siemens presented a solution for detecting anomalies in industrial networks at Hannover Messe 2018. Industrial Anomaly Detection enables security-related incidents such as unauthorised intrusions and malware to be identified and countermeasures to be taken. The software is pre-installed on an industrial PC and easily integrated into industrial environments. Alternatively, it can run on network components from Siemens, such as the multiservice platform Ruggedcom RX1500 with Ruggedcom APE. The solution is especially suitable for companies in the automobile production, aerospace, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and water/wastewater industries.
Industrial Anomaly Detection begins by establishing transparency regarding the devices integrated into industrial networks (such as controllers and HMI devices) and the software installed on them. Having achieved that, the second step is to identify vulnerabilities within devices on the network by matching assets with known vulnerabilities and identifying other network hygiene configuration issues that need to be closed. The third step is to monitor a device’s communication behaviour continuously. The system collects the data passively, so it does not have any effect on production. It supports the products of all the current automation manufacturers and their protocols. If the solution detects deviations that might indicate unauthorised intrusions or misconfigurations, it automatically sends an alarm to the users. Depending on the criticality, the incidents can be dealt with by onsite experts or external security specialists.
The anomaly detection system also uses artificial intelligence (AI), which configures the system by a process of self-learning. The solution automatically analyses the data traffic in the network in a learning phase so that it can then detect anomalies that might indicate intrusion or data theft by hackers. Industrial Anomaly Detection is an important complement to the range of industrial security products and services offered by Siemens. It is based on the holistic Defense-in-Depth concept.
At the Munich Security Conference 2018, Siemens also initiated the Charter of Trust for binding rules and standards to build trust in cybersecurity and further advance digitalisation. To continuously innovate and adapt cybersecurity measures to new threats it is important to combine domain know-how. For this reason Siemens cooperates with numerous different partners for Industrial Anomaly Detection technology from leading partners.
