The Internet of Things (IoT) has significant potential in upgrading legacy production machinery with monitoring capabilities to unlock new capabilities and bring economic benefits. However, the introduction of IoT at the shop floor layer exposes it to additional security risks with potentially significant adverse operational impact. This project addresses such fundamental new risks at their root by introducing a novel endpoint security by design approach. The approach is implemented on a widely applicable production machinery monitoring application by introducing real time adaptation features for IoT device security through subsystem isolation and a dedicated lightweight authentication protocol.
