Forward-looking security analysis of smart factories [Part 2] Security risks of industrial application stores

On May 11, 2020, Trend Micro released a paper showing the results of proof-of-concept research on new security risks associated with smart factories. In this series of 5 columns, based on the results of this research, we will look at the security risks to be aware of when promoting smart factories by examining overlooked attack vectors, feasible attack scenarios, and recommended defense strategies.

This column is must-read content for architects, engineers, and developers who are involved in smart factory technology. Let’s take a closer look at the vulnerabilities and security risks involved in industrial application stores, which are a weak spot of engineering workstations.
