Secure drone usage for Special Forces and critical infrastructure protection against cyber-attacks at Security EssenBerlin, September 20, 2018 – Infotecs, the international vendor of cybersecurity and threat intelligence solutions, participates in Security Essen on 25.-28.09.2018, the leading international security and fire protection exhibition. At stand 8D50, hall 8, security experts will present various solutions for using drones by special forces and protecting e charge infrastructures in e-mobility, as well as protecting critical infrastructures against cyber-attacks.
This topic will be covered by Josef Waclaw, CEO of Infotecs GmbH, in his speech on "Data protection in UAV – Secure encrypted live video data transfer from drones for special forces" during the Security Experts Forum at Security Essen in hall 2, stand 2B99 on Wednesday, 26.09.2018 at 14:30. The security expert will explain how live video data transfer from drones can be protected against cybercriminals' attacks. ViPNet, the military-grade software-defined security technology, organizes the end-to-end communication and data transfer between the drone and the operation command center or mobile end devices via a mobile data network. Unauthorized parties cannot listen to the video data and publish it on social media without due authorization. The ViPNet encryption completely prevents the so-called man-in-the-middle attacks because the technology is based on the symmetrical key management and requires no key exchange when establishing the connection. Special Forces, for example, in fire protection, emergency management or hazard prevention, can access the sensitive data from drones via mobile end devices, such as smartphones or tablets, or from the operation command center.
At stand 8D50, hall 8, the Infotecs team will demonstrate more showcases related to IT security for critical and/or industrial infrastructures. Along with a simulated cyber-attack on a brewery, the IT security specialists will present an integrated security solution for e-mobility. The solution will clarify how the e-charger infrastructure can be protected against cyber-attacks.
"Conventionally, the perimeter protection is complemented by electronic surveillance systems, like, for example, video camera surveillance or electronic access control systems, etc. ", explains Josef Waclaw, CEO of Infotecs GmbH. "They require special protection against cyber-attacks."
