Icon Labs and Renesas Electronics America demonstrate security platform for IoT and industrial automation

Icon Labs has announced the integration of Icon Labs’ Floodgate security products with Renesas’ R-IN32M3 industrial network controller ICs and Renesas Synergy Platform.

Renesas_logoThe integrated solution creates a secure platform for IoT and industrial automation and extends the Internet of Secure ThingsTM initiative into industrial control systems. This integrated solution is being jointly demonstrated at the Renesas Developers Conference.

Icon Labs’ Internet of Secure Things Initiative defines a platform for developing secure, connected devices. The platform ensures that security is intrinsic to the architecture of the device itself and incorporates security management, visibility, device hardening, data protection and secure communications. These capabilities provide the foundation for the Industrial Internet of Secure Things. Natively securing the devices simplifies protection, audit, and compliance – independent of the secure perimeter, reducing the need for expensive and complicated security appliances.

“Security has become a critical requirement for our customers in all segments especially in industrial and IoT applications.  Partnering with Icon Labs allows us to provide a complete security solution that is fully integrated with our hardware platforms,” stated Semir Haddad, senior marketing director, MCU and MPU Products and Solutions, Renesas Electronics America.  “Icon Labs Floodgate product family provides a comprehensive security platform for developing secure, embedded devices using the new Renesas SynergyT Platform for IoT or the R-IN32M3 ICs for Industrial Automation.”

The integration of Icon Labs’ Floodgate products and Renesas’ hardware platforms provides:

  • Integrated embedded firewall
  • Modbus protocol filtering
  • Intrusion detection
  • Secure communication
  • Authentication
  • Small footprint crypto libs
  • Integration with security management systems
  • Security policy management
  • Event and command audit log reporting

“The Industrial IoT provides unprecedented connectivity to the systems we interact with every day, and industrial automation systems are increasingly connected and charged with performing critical functions,” said Alan Grau, CEO of Icon Labs.  “Including security in these devices is a critical design task.  Security features must be considered early in the design process to ensure the device is protected from the advanced cyber-threats they will be facing now as well as attacks that will be created in the future.  By partnering with Renesas, we now are able to offer a solution in which critical security elements are integrated into the platform, ensuring that security is a foundational component of the device.”
