Lost in Translation: When Industrial Protocol Translation goes Wrong


Translation makes it possible to exchange information across the globe, regardless of language differences. Translation plays a similar role in industrial internet of things (IIoT) environments where different devices, such as interfaces, sensors, and machines, use different protocols. Protocol gateways handle the translation of these different protocols in an industrial facility, allowing devices to communicate with one another.

What happens when translations are inaccurate or when parts of a message are mistranslated? Trend Micro’s latest research, “Lost in Translation: When Industrial Protocol Translation goes Wrong,” examines the risks related to protocol gateways, the possible impact of an attack or wrong translation, and ways to secure these devices.
