Hi Elizabeth thanks for the link. It seems that lots of similar products and key ideas are available over net. But when it comes to implementation or productization of technology, meeting the security specification/requirements may not be feasible always.
Hi, Mydesign, thanks for your comment. I don't know all the specifics of the product but here is the web page with information about it for your reference: http://www.infoblox.com/products/network-automation/security-device-controller
I am sure you will find more info there about security, as you're right, it is a key concern, and a key design goal of this product.
Elizabeth, thanks for the details of this particular product. Security is a main concern, especially in networked environment and cloud eco system. How the security aspects are addressed in this product? Any idea, I mean about the communication layer protocols and encryption technology.
As more and more diverse devices become connected to the network, technology like this is going to be important to manage and secure it all. This is especially becoming more critical to areas like manufacturing, which are moving to streamline and adopt a single protocol from the factory floor to the back office to the field.
New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
