Industrial Internet Consortium Announces First Security Claims Evaluation Testbed

Del

The Industrial Internet Consortium ® (IIC) announces its first security assessment-focused testbed: the Security Claims Evaluation Testbed. IIC member organizations UL, Xilinx, Aicas and PrismTech are collaborating on the project to provide an open and easily configurable cybersecurity platform for evaluation of endpoint, gateway, and other networked components’ security capabilities. Data sources can include industrial, automotive, medical and other related endpoints requested for secure operation analysis.

IIC members will be able to connect their equipment to the testbed to evaluate the security of their devices within two different scenarios: individually on a device level, or with a system of other endpoints, gateways, etc. The options include exploration of methodology and collection of evidence to demonstrate the system operational security processes supporting the key characteristics of the system relative to evaluation of the participant’s claims. Additionally, the testbed enables the evaluation of those critical areas of an architecture pattern that need to be secured as outlined in the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture Technical Report.

Understanding the security of devices very early in product development can minimize delays for product launch. The testbed aims to enable manufacturers to improve the security posture of their products and verify alignment to the upcoming IIC Security Framework Technical Report prior to product launch to help accelerate time to market.

The testbed will be rolled out in three stages, with the first being initial deployment in a lab environment and the second in a micro-factory environment. The third phase will be determined by the growth of the testbed. The security testbed’s phased release approach provides a unique learning opportunity to evaluate security vulnerabilities at a device level as well as a system level prior to large scale deployment across many key applications driving the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) / Industry 4.0.

“Working to help assure the security of the Industrial Internet is a logical extension of UL’s work to support safer environments globally,” said Jeff Smidt, Vice President and General Manager of UL’s energy & power technologies division. “By offering the first IIC-approved security evaluation testbed to IIC members and the broader IIoT community, we are meeting the manufacturers’ need to address their products’ security profile early on in the product development cycle, thus enabling more efficient product rollout processes.”

“Xilinx is committed to providing the Industrial IoT industry with our latest All Programmable SoC technologies that focus on achieving the highest levels of anti-tamper, information assurance and trust capabilities,” said Lawrence Getman, Vice President of Corporate and Strategic Marketing at Xilinx. “Xilinx’s technology is at the heart of the Security Claims Evaluation testbed. By leveraging the highly flexible and configurable nature that our Programmable SoC devices provide, we enable a broad spectrum of use cases that further enhance the participants’ security claim assessments.”

“Aicas helps realize the Industrial IoT industry with secure, scalable, dynamic component-based composable, standards-based, deterministic hard real-time capable, multi-language software platforms,” said David Beberman, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Aicas. “Aicas’ toolchain and platform Java bytecode based technology and secure messaging technology enables component level installation and runtime authentication, authorization and IP protection for the Security Claims Evaluation testbed, and extends it with authentication, authorization and privacy to the cloud.”

“PrismTech develops secure, high performance, real-time end-to-end, data connectivity solutions for the Industrial IoT based on the OMG’s Data Distribution Service for Real-time Systems standard,” said Lawrence Ross, CEO, PrismTech. “Our technology will provide the Security Claims Evaluation Testbed with a flexible and secure Edge to Cloud data backbone that can support a broad range of participants’ security claims assessments.”

Partners Contributing to the Security Claims Evaluation Testbed:

The testbed will leverage several technologies from non-IIC constituents including: secure intelligent gateway and networking IPs providing endpoint to the cloud communication from SoC-e (System-on-Chip engineering S.L.), overall testbed monitoring with real-time analytics from Juxt.io, endpoint monitoring from PFP Cybersecurity, and programmable SOC Platforms and IP from iVeia.

Pierre Fabre & Array BioPharma Announce a 62% Observed OS at One Year from the Phase 3 BEACON CRC Safety Lead-In of the Combination of Encorafenib, Binimetinib and Cetuximab in BRAF-Mutant CRC at the ESMO GI Congress23.6.2018 11:00Pressemelding

Not intended for UK- and US-based media Pierre Fabre and its partner Array BioPharma Inc. today announced updated safety and efficacy results, including OS, from the safety lead-in of the Phase 3 BEACON CRC trial evaluating the triplet combination of encorafenib, a BRAF inhibitor, binimetinib, a MEK inhibitor and cetuximab, an anti-EGFR antibody, in patients with BRAF V600E -mutant metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). The results showed that, at the time of analysis, the OS data were fully mature through 12.6 months and that the median OS had not yet been reached. The one-year overall survival rate for this cohort was 62%. These data were presented in an oral presentation on Saturday, June 23, at the ESMO 20th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer in Barcelona, Spain. The median progression-free survival (mPFS) for patients treated with the triplet was 8 months [95% CI 5.6-9.3] and is similar between patients receiving one prior line of therapy and patients receiving two prior lines

Compelling Data for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Presented at ESMO’s World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer by Servier and Taiho23.6.2018 08:10Pressemelding

Servier and Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. today announced that the TASCO-1 trial demonstrated promising results for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in combination with bevacizumab in patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who are not suitable for intensive treatment, with a median progression-free survival (PFS) of 9.2 months (ranging from 7.6 to 11.5 months). A second non-comparative arm in the trial, evaluated the outcome of patients treated with the current standard of care of capecitabine in combination with bevacizumab. The median PFS of this arm was 7.8 months (ranging from 5.5 to 10.1 months). “Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. While there has been some progress in treatment, there are still few options for patients with metastatic disease who are not suitable for intensive treatment,” said Professor Eric Van Cutsem, Head of Digestive Oncology at the University of Leuven, Belgium. “These compelling results suggest

Boehringer Ingelheim bolsters biologics research and development with 230 million euro investment in new development center22.6.2018 12:00Pressemelding

Today Boehringer Ingelheim announced a 230 million euro investment into a new Biologicals Development Center (BDC) at the company’s Research and Development site in Biberach, Germany during the foundation stone laying for the new center. “The BDC is another key building block supporting the company’s long-term strategy for increasing the pipeline’s share of biologicals. This is particularly driven by two of our core areas, immune oncology and immunology,” says Dr. Fridtjof Traulsen, Corporate Senior Vice President Development at Boehringer Ingelheim. “The share of new biological entities in Boehringer Ingelheim’s research pipeline has been consistently increasing over the past few years and has now reached forty percent.” The BDC will help to maximize synergies by integrating biologicals analytical and process development as well as manufacturing for clinical studies into one seamless unit, while at the same time increasing development capacity.
