Protection of Smart Manufacturing Environment is important task to be accomplished as cyber attack is getting more and more arduous at every instance. The threats and problems posed by hackers around the globe are also rapidly increasing. The vulnerabilities left in the Assets and Equipment used at Semiconductor manufacturing provide potential opportunities for hackers to disrupt the manufacturing. The increasing threats and problems lead to need for vulnerability assessment and hardening techniques at different layers of factory and Equipment.
This paper talks about different layers & technologies at Smart manufacturing, Assets and Equipment with possible vulnerabilities and solutions & techniques to harden and protect smart manufacturing from attacks. The Equipment life cycle and security aspects at every phase is considered. This will cover all aspects of security like Operations, Devices, Software Applications, Operating System and Network.
-360Â° Secure Operation Technology ( OT) Security framework helps factories to assess, strategize, define, design and manage OT landscape based on various industry accepted Cyber Security guidelines and standards like SANS CSC, NIST SP 800-82, ISA 95, IEC 62443 with array of holistic solutions and services addressing the 4-dimensions of an Industry namely - Assets, People, Technology & Process/Compliance.
-List of hardware and low levels components along with the possible vulnerabilities, potential attacks and remediations for Semiconductor Equipment and factories. -List of methodologies and techniques to secure the applications that are running in the Semi Equipment and Factory Environments -DevSecOps Solution to reduce 30% effort in application security testing process uses the scanner tools to perform vulnerability scanning and security tests to validate the security adherence -Hardening Techniques of different Operating Systems used in Equipment and Factory Security Use cases of Smart Factories with vulnerabilities and remediation are discussed. The modernization of smart factories with latest technologies will ensure high yield. It is very important to use the Security Framework with process and techniques to protect the factory to ensure no disruption to production, Quality and Yield.
