CLPA Working Group on industrial ethernet security

Jun 01, 2017

The newly created CC-Link Partner Association Ethernet Security Working Group focuses on network security, especially when the user adopts the SeamLess Message Protocol (SLMP) and CC-Link IE clpaField Basic, where general IP communication is used for both cyclic and transient communications.

A guideline document for secure network design is being created, based on IEC62443, including the defense-in-depth security approach. Router/switch configuration examples for secure SLMP and CC-Link IE Field Basic are also described, alongside an overview of industrial-network security, an examination of the defense-in-depth security approach, and use-case examples.

The CC-Link Partner Association Ethernet Security Working Group includes participation from Cisco Systems, Hilscher, Mitsubishi Electric, HMS, Belden-Hirschmann, MOXA, Panduit and MIND.

The CC-Link Partner Association is an international, open-network organization founded in 2000, and dedicated to the technical development and promotion of the CC-Link family of open-automation networks. The CLPA's key technology is CC-Link IE, the open-gigabit ethernet for automation. The CLPA, which began with 163 corporate members, has expanded yearly and currently includes more than 2,800 members.
