Enable secure connectivity

Get your industrial devices IIoT ready in a secure way with Anybus CompactCom security platform


Encrypt, Authenticate and Authorize your connectivity with Anybus CompactCom IIoT Secure



Secure boot

Secure boot is a vital part to enable any kind of security solution. The CompactCom secure boot feature checks the integrity of the product and makes sure only HMS software is used.


Certificate Management

CompactCom provides certificate management and provisioning, to enable proper device authentication and authorization. 



Data sent is encrypted using OPC UA Secure Channels. Secure access and file transfer will also be possible over TLS using HTTPS and WebDAV.


Security Chip

Secret data such as private keys are stored on a separate security chip which strengthens the integrity and identity of the product.

Three steps to secure device connectivity with CompactCom


1. Module certification at HMS factory

Every Anybus CompactCom Iiot module is prepared with an identification certificate in the production. The security chip sends a public key to a secure certification server that provides the appropriate certificate.


2. Identification at customer site

When booting the industry device the identity certificate is sent to the on site certification software that provides the device certificate to the machine.


3. Secure and identified

All certified machines at the site are identified so that every machine knows that the source of the data is the correct one. All data sent is encrypted.

Products tested for security

Security is an ever ongoing process and HMS Networks continually test the Anybus CompactCom 40-series products to check resistance against packet storms, known security holes and malformed packets.

Some of the methods and tools we use in different development projects are Achilles, Netload and Nessus.

To prevent unauthorized or malicious code from being downloaded, the CompactCom 40-series only accept firmware that has been digitally signed by HMS. The included FPGA design is encrypted.

Using our own technology, we are in full control of the design, allowing us to optimize performance and fix possible vulnerabilities easily.

Unused protocols and functionality can be disabled as necessary by the host application.

What should you think of as an industrial device manufacturer when it comes to security?

Security for industrial devices

In this Whitepaper, Christian Bergdahl, Leif Malmberg and Joakim Wiberg from HMS answer five key questions about industrial cybersecurity, as IT and OT rapidly converge.

  1. How widely will the factory floor of the future be connected to higher level systems?
  2. Aren’t today’s factories closed systems, meaning outside access is denied?
  3. Who will be responsible that an installation is secure?
  4. Do I need to secure all my products, or can I only secure the ones considered to be at risk? And how
    do I know which products those are?
  5. Is it the device manufacturer’s responsibility to solve the security requirements in a factory?
