Cybersecurity in Wireless Comunications in Industrial Enviroments
Wireless technologies are becoming more and more prominent everywhere, and also in industrial environments, driven by all other environments where the use of wireless communication technologies is widespread.
Some technologies such as ZigBee or WirelessHART start to consolidate in industrial environments, where devices used for communication are becoming increasingly intelligent, and it is possible to draw an advantage from the simplicity and convenience of the communication systems that use air as a transmission medium.
This study presents a series of technologies used in the industry and lists the possibilities that those technologies offer at the level of security. It also presents a series of recommendations to safeguard confidentiality, integrity and availability of our wireless communications.
