How to realize secure data exchange and communication in industry? The OPC Foundation Security User Group answers this question by publishing its first whitepaper “Practical Security Recommendations”.

Rapid growth in the networking and digitization of industrial systems has introduced a host of new security challenges that must be addressed systematically to be effectively mitigated. In particular, beyond the need for implementing secure network infrastructures, it is essential to protect product and production data moving throughout the systems.

Device vendors, engineers, and system integrators need to ensure they use these technologies in a secure way. While industry acknowledges the need for data security and that the OPC UA standard offers the means to do so – OT and IT professionals alike are often unsure on how to best get started.

German appliance manufacturer Miele has decided to consequently use the OPC UA Standard in their device manufacturing and join the OPC Foundation. The integrated security providing encryption and signing is comprehensively implemented throughout Miele.

One major advantage of OPC UA is provision of standardized interfaces within different systems. Wasted time caused by integration, when inventing the wheel over and over again, has mostly come to an end. With that the real task - transporting data content - comes back into focus.

Reducing engineering efforts in communication technology, i.e. in highly flexible production processes like Industrie 4.0, dramatically decreases cost.

The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA), in association with the OPC Foundation, has announced an OPC UA companion specification for the CLPA’s new “CSP+ for Machine” technology to further ease the implementation of Industry 4.0 type applications.

CSP+ for Machine is an extension of the CLPA’s existing “CSP+” (Control & Communication System Profile) that provides easy network configuration and maintenance by offering profiles that describe each device on a CC-Link IE or CC-Link network. CSP+ technology has been established for some time and provides easy drag and drop network configuration from CSP+ files provided by CLPA partner vendors, allowing convenient device libraries to be created.

The OPC Foundation is organizing its first workshop of 2018 in order to ensure that all OPC products continue working together. The gathered experts will validate interoperability for all required interfaces and functions, as well as validate interoperability for any optional interfaces where practical.

The foundation members will document interoperability issues that occur for purposes of adding clarity to the OPC specifications.

OPC-UA-Integration of AutoID-Devices towards “Industry 4.0”

Within the last two years OPC Foundation and AIM-D e.V. created the AIM OPCF AutoID companion specification in the AIM working group “System Integration” with the aim to integrate AutoID devices into the OPC UA world. A first version of the paper was presented at the Hanover Industrial Fair 2015. At the Hanover Industrial Fair 2016 the updated Version 1.0 was presented – including the description of first prototypes and applications as well as incorporating the cloud-capacity of AutoID systems and sensor networks which become more and more important for the concept of industry 4.0.
