  Rockwell Automation Announces Support for CIP Security Protocol Controllers

15. November 2018 - Rockwell Automation introduces industrial control products that enable businesses to deploy CIP security in their operations.

ODVA, a worldwide association of world leading automation companies, developed CIP Security. It is an extension of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP), the application layer protocol for EtherNet / IP. CIP Security is the first industrial automation protocol to support Transport Layer Security (TLS), the most widely used security standard on the World Wide Web today.

Engineers can implement CIP security in their systems through Rockwell Automation products and provide firmware updates for existing products, such as: For example, Allen-Bradley ControlLogix controllers, communication modules, and Kinetix servo drives.

In addition, the FactoryTalk Linx communications software enables FactoryTalk visualization and information software running on a PC to communicate with CIP Security-enabled devices. The FactoryTalk Policy Manager tool in the FactoryTalk software is used to implement and configure security policies between CIP security devices.

Rockwell Automation developed this feature to work with existing industrial control equipment, whether developed to support CIP security or not. This allows industrial users to move to safety over time and retrofit existing installations.

In addition, Allen-Bradley's ControlLogix 5580 controllers will soon be certified to the IEC 62443-4-2 safety standard and build on the IEC 62443-4-1 certification already received by the Rockwell Automation Security Development Lifecycle Has.

This latest certification means that the controllers meet the cybersecurity requirements of the global standard to help companies secure their networked operations.
