IEC 62443 is a series of standards that address cybersecurity for industrial IoT systems based on best-practices for the technology, processes, and users of these systems. Implementing these standards can prevent attacks or mitigate their effects. IEC 62443 defines requirements and processes for implementing and maintaining electronically secure industrial automation and control systems.
Each step up in security level is intended to protect against more sophisticated threats with greater resources and greater motivation to compromise the system. In this context, developers evaluate what they are protecting, and who they are protecting it from to determine the appropriate security level. NXP provides a broad portfolio for a wide range of protection. Depending on your application, you can choose from SoCs with integrated security capabilities, ready-to-use secure elements -- or a combination of both. Our portfolio is designed to protect against basic software threats all the way up to sophisticated hardware attacks on the most critical and high-value systems.
