Security Solution Enables Certification Under IEC 62443-4-2



In today’s connected world, robust security measures are essential. Cyberattacks on industrial control systems for infrastructure facilities like manufacturing plants and power stations pose the risk of serious disruption to people’s lives and to the economy.

Renesas recently announced their plans to release a security solution based on the Renesas RZ/G Linux Platform that will reduce the amount of time required for users to obtain certification under IEC 62443-4-2, a new international standard for security technologies used to protect industrial control systems from cyberattacks.

The Renesas RZ/G Linux Platform security solution will include all the software and documentation necessary to obtain IEC 62443-4-2 certification, helping developers overcome the challenges associated with certification including:

  • Interpreting the difficult standard
  • Preparing the software and documentation required for certification
  • Executing a procedure requiring specialized expertise

Together with deliverables through the activities in Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) Project, the solution will enable users to reduce the time required for obtaining IEC 62443-4-2 certification by as much as six months.

The new IEC 62443-4-2-compliant security solution is scheduled to be available by the end of 2019, starting with the RZ/G2M MPU.
