In the Altior IoT service platform, security is a building block of the overall design; this means that Altior components include security as a core element.
For Inkwell Data, data security is not simply based on features and products but is the result of a process. We don’t rely on specific implementation of proprietary algorithms.
On the contrary, all the security implementation features are based on well documented and, where possible, open sourced technology, to give total accountability to customers and end users.
General IIoT security considerations
Each IoT device provides one or more capabilities – features or functions – it can use on its own or in conjunction with other devices to achieve one or more goal.
Some of the most relevant features for Altior security are the following:
An IIoT network shares some commonalities with a computer network but also poses unique requirements; thus, we include the security objectives of any computer system with those peculiar of field deployed sensors and devices.
There is no such a thing as a unique approach to security and every framework has its pros and cons. The Altior Security Framework (ASF) is designed with the IIoT network operator in mind but is open to all types of integration due to its flexibility and versatility. ASF’s uniqueness lies in its device-level implementation, which allows shorter time to market for IIoT applications, while its openness can be a key value for an expanding ecosystem.
The Inkwell Data Develpment Team is focused on keeping the ASF constantly updated to guarantee a continuous service to our customers.
