New Virtual Private Network authenticates, encrypts SCADA

Authentication and encryption of SCADA and automation communications are announced to be easily made 

via new Tofino Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Released by this company and MTL, VPN is declared as “the first solution for securely connecting industrial control facilities and people together over untrusted networks (such as Internet). It does not need an IT expert to set up and administer.”

Some 80% of Tofino installations are in petroleum operations with three of its’ five major users being refineries or pipelines.

In use, controls technicians install Tofino Security Appliances in the field, log into and install the VPN modules into the SAs, then drag-and-drop the icons for SAs to pair the units.

There are no passwords to remember, no encryption keys to manage, no technical details since “Tofino looks after it all,” declares the maker. Complete Virtual Private Network specifics are yours free upon request.
