Secure Manufacturing with Fortanix

Fortanix offers a comprehensive data security platform for distributed manufacturing that can scale with demand.

Overview

Today, most devices are being manufactured in remote or offshore sites that do not have the same level of security standards as the corporate headquarters. Introduction of IoT into manufacturing has also created serious cybersecurity challenges. Cybercriminals now have an opportunity to hack into sensitive information that is stored on the devices manufactured within unsecured environments and introduce counterfeit units causing financial loss and irrevocable damage to the brand’s reputation. Manufacturing organizations are looking to implement advanced security systems that can ensure smarter, secure factory workflows, protect business critical information, and safeguard IP.

Fortanix offers a unified data security platform that delivers a scalable cloud-native solution to securely generate, store, and use cryptographic keys and certificates, as well as secrets, such as passwords, API keys, tokens, or any blob of data. Secured with Intel® SGX, Fortanix runs the entire key management inside a FIPS 140-2 certified HSM. No one other than the authorized user has access to the keys. The scale-out distributed design ensures that it can scale to also meet the rising demand for PKI fueled by Internet of Things (IoT).

Benefits

Highly reliable and resistant to failure

A Fortanix cluster supports high availability and is resistant to a high number of node failures. The cluster remains available even when a node fails, and the tolerance to such faults increases with a greater number of nodes in the cluster.

Securely run sensitive business logic inside the Key Management Service (KMS)

Plugins are a powerful system allowing users and/or applications to securely run sensitive business logic inside the Key Management Service (KMS). Plugins may be used for operations like imposing custom access control policies for keys, get distributed approvals from a quorum, use RSA keys to sign certificates with specific attributes and to even create wrapped keys signed by root CA based certificates.

Single pane of glass for management

Corporate manufacturing HQ can standardize on a single source of cryptographic services and security teams can get a single pane of glass for management.

Quorum based approval policy

A group administrator may enable a quorum approval policy on a group. Doing so mandates that all security-sensitive operations like key deletion, encryption and decryption, key export, key wrapping and unwrapping etc. would require approval by a quorum.
