1783 CIP Security™ Proxy from Rockwell Automation

Luis Ramos7/7/2022

Rockwell Automation has released the new 1783 CIP Security™ Proxy. This DIN rail-mounted standalone device lets you connect a device that is not CIP (Common Industrial Protocol) Security-capable to an Industrial Control System that has CIP Security enabled. The 1783-CSP CIP Security™ Proxy provides configuration through FactoryTalk® Policy Manager software and FactoryTalk System Services.

This provides secure communication down to Non-CIP Security enabled devices including Controllers, I/O families, and EtherNet/IP based Drives. CIP Security is part of the Defense-in-Depth Security Architecture, which provides multiple layers of security to prevent network-based attacks.

The goal of CIP Security is ensuring the Industrial Control System is protected from malicious CIP communications. 

Devices enabled with CIP Security can:

  • Reject data that has been altered (integrity)
  • Reject messages sent by untrusted people or untrusted devices (authenticity)
  • Reject messages that request actions that are not allowed (authorization)
