PROFINET Security Guideline



With its Security Guideline, PI is presenting a concept for the first time that takes into account the threats and special requirements of the automation world. This concept aims to protect automation components, irrespective of the communication protocols used or the network structure. Through the use of proven and open security mechanisms, the integration into existing security concepts is also possible.

This guideline is intended for users and operators of industrial networks, particularly those using Ethernet-based PROFINET. It points out the key aspects for the establishment of a security concept in this environment and provides appropriate recommendations.
