Key infrastructure gets encryption

Thales e-Security Inc. is finishing work on an encryption appliance to secure legacy process control systems that regulate much of the nation's critical infrastructure.

"It is designed to be a bump-in-the-wire solution," installed between the remote device and the management console, said Juan Asenjo, business development director for the Weston, Fla., company.

The supervisory control and data acquisition, or SCADA, module is set for May release and would provide near-end-to-end encryption, as well as authentication for remote administration of supervisory control and data acquisition systems.
