Feedback form is now closed.

Information Technology (IT) is increasingly utilized in railway systems to introduce new functions and improve process efficiency. Due to the digitalization of the railway infrastructure and the replacement of proprietary networking infrastructures with IP-based infrastructures the risks of cyberattacks increases and new IT security requirements appear. As the railway system is a critical infrastructure, that is strongly regulated by the German IT security act (IT-Sicherheitsgesetz), appropriate security solutions need to be developed. The aim of HASELNUSS is the development of a customized, hardware-based security platform for the railway command and control system that provides the required security functions without jeopardizing safety. The platform features provisions to ensure the system integrity and constitutes the foundation for secure infrastructure networking. It includes virtualization, secure patch and update management, health monitoring as well as anomaly and attack detection. The developed security platform will be implemented in demonstrators during the project.
