Open Cloud Factory & Mondragon University OT cybersecurity Laboratory
Open Cloud Factory & Mondragon University OT Cybersecurity Laboratory is part of Mondragon’s Industry 4.0 Laboratory Infrastructure, offering a unique environment which is fully dedicated to OT Cybersecurity via Research and Applied Innovation. Industrial Automation and Robotics, Process and System Integration and Network Access Control solutions gather around this technological space, driven by a talented community who supports the Industrial Ecosystem on the many challenges they face on the digital security field. This laboratory represents a meeting point to leverage talent development, foster research around state-of-the-art technologies and trends, with the purpose to accelerate innovative products and solutions, always with an applied approach to Industrial Processes and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). The laboratory represents different Industrial Control Systems (ICS) architectural types, according to specific sectors, such as Critical Infrastructures (i.e. Smart Grid, Water), Process Industries (i.e. Food & Beverage), Discrete Manufacturing and Healthcare/LifeScience, among others. Laboratory’s dedicated space to Industrial Equipment rises to 112 m2, having an additional workspace of 89 m2 used by students, trainees and lab users. A large variety of equipment is provided: Computer Vision Systems, 1 CoBot, 2 Industrial Robots, 1 Mobile Robot, and a modular Manufacturing Execution System by FESTO (CP Lab). Everything is connected to a Data Center holding an infrastructure that includes networking devices, data storage units and cybersecurity equipment, compliant to the IEC-62443 standards (Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems) in regard to Network Access Control and Segmentation. To manage OT Cybersecurity within this industrial laboratory, the 100% software-based, hardware-agnostic and modular solution OpenNAC Enterprise solution by Open Cloud Factory is provided. OpenNAC Enterprise offers full IT/OT/IoT/IIoT visibility, Network Access Control and Compliance. The visibility module is based on a holistic approach providing with inventory and profiling of all connected assets, as well as detailed traffic information. Network Access Control and Compliance modules are adaptive, allowing to apply rule-based policies and offering secure access to users and endpoints, both locally and remotely. Besides the NAC Core functionality, OpenNAC Enterprise offers value-added services such as network configuration and discovery, backup of network device configuration data and network monitoring.
