  Honeywell Receives Certification for ESASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) Level 2 for Control Edge Remote Terminal Unit

7. June 2018 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced that its ControlEdge Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) process controller ISASecure has received Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) Level 2 certification. The evaluation by the independent ISO 17065 accredited certification body exida took into account both the integrity of the RTU and its development lifecycle, as well as communication testing and functional and software development security assessments.

The certification recognizes the cybersecurity features of the ControlEdge RTU. This is used for remote control and control applications such as well monitoring in the oil and gas industry. Tests by exida revealed that the RTU was "free from known cyber security vulnerabilities, robust against network attacks and [conformed] to ISASecure EDSA Level 2 security features".

ISASecure certification was developed by the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) based on the ISA / IEC 62443 series of standards for improving the cyber security of industrial automation and control systems. The Level 2 certification recognizes advanced levels of protection such as data privacy and peace of mind, detection of unauthorized changes, and additional protection against denial of service attacks against Level 1 certified devices.

"Cyber ​​security is becoming more and more important for control systems," said Andre Ristaino, managing director of ISCI. "Honeywell has invested a lot to be a leader in this regard, and these certifications reflect that."

Honeywell's RTU helps plants manage complex distributed assets while transforming data from complex automation systems into relevant, actionable information.

the fifth Honeywell device certified to the ISASecure scheme. Last August, ControlEdge PLC became the first PLC to receive ISASecure Level 2 certification. Its development site in Phoenix, AZ, USA, was awarded ISASecure SDLA certification in 2016 and confirms that secure development life cycle practices have been institutionalized at the site.
