Cybels KMC in the rail sector
The growing digitalisation of trains and rail infrastructure offers many opportunities but also creates new risks. Cybels KMC brings the rail industry an efficient way of managing the cryptographic keys needed to secure communications between digital devices. > read more
The key to trust
Key management is an essential aspect of cybersecurity, making it possible for two or more devices to communicate in complete security. Certificates and keys are used to authenticate communicating parties and encrypt the data exchanged between the devices. > read more
Cybersecuring your train journey
Could your train journey be in the crosshairs of hackers? This question would have seemed unthinkable a decade ago. Yet research shows that railways are increasingly targeted by malicious actors.
The past four years have witnessed an upsurge in cyber attacks against the rail sector. Between November 2016 and February 2020, there were at least nine major attacks against networks in Europe and North America. Both metro and main line railways were targeted. > read more
Digital assurance, secure encryption, secure transmission and the authentication of data are cornerstones to keeping data secure in an ever more connected world. This includes the protection of data in transit and at rest. In order to create digital assurance, crypto keys need to be generated, managed and kept safe. Each generated key has a lifecycle consisting of three phases: key derivation, use and retention, revocation. These three phases are the same for every key despite keys being used for different purposes and in different contexts. > read more
