Cyber security based on public key infrastructures forms the basis for the intelligent connectivity of devices. The market demands secure hacker-resistant products that come with a security certificate, for example in the form of certification according to IEC 62443. Manufacturers can satisfy the requirements of IEC 62443 with high-quality electronic certificates that verify the authenticity of the software and hardware used in their products. achelos offers extensive support for public key infrastructures, from planning, through provisioning, all the way up to secure operation, also as managed services in the cloud.
