Standard for Secure Gateways for Data and Services

IDS is Officially a Standard: DIN SPEC 27070 is Published

Today, the DIN SPEC 27070 “Requi­re­ments and refe­rence archi­tec­tu­re of a secu­ri­ty gate­way for the exchan­ge of indus­try data and ser­vices” has been publis­hed. Sebas­ti­an Stein­buss, CTO IDSA, about the publi­ca­ti­on: “Adding to the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Refe­rence Archi­tec­tu­re (IDS-RAM), the release of the DIN SPEC repres­ents a huge mile­stone on the way to secu­re cross-com­pa­ny exchan­ge of indus­tri­al manu­fac­tu­ring data. The next step is to make this DIN SPEC an inter­na­tio­nal stan­dard – an ISO stan­dard.”

Glo­bal­ly net­wor­ked pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses demand data exchan­ge that trans­cends com­pa­ny and sec­tor bounda­ries. In this con­text, data secu­ri­ty and data sov­er­eig­n­ty are indis­pensable. DIN SPEC 27070 spe­ci­fies the requi­re­ments to be met by a secu­ri­ty gate­way for data exchan­ge, with regards to the gate­way archi­tec­tu­re and cyber secu­ri­ty mea­su­res. The spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on was deve­lo­ped by the Ger­man Insti­tu­te for Stan­dar­di­z­a­ti­on (DIN), tog­e­ther with Fraun­ho­fer AISEC, SICK AG and 13 other orga­niz­a­ti­ons from indus­try and rese­arch.
