Communications Robustness

– Nohau helps to identify security risk of the device and detect vulnerabilities early avoiding expensive consequences from attacks.

Cyber attacks on critical infrastructure are on the increase and are a growing concern for both system operators and the device manufacturers who supply equipment to these systems. Attacks on critical infrastructure can severely impact service uptime, data integrity, compliance and even public safety.


Nohau’s Communications Robustness Check service identifies a security risk level existing in embedded software of a device and allows fixing security issues proactively. Nohau’s Service is a rapid, economical appraisal that identifies product robustness related security weaknesses and provides direction for further analysis. We offer a service that reveals quickly vulnerabilities in attacker-accessible communications interfaces. Nohau’s security analysts use a state of art AchillesTM testing tool to run industry standard test suites that are compliant with ISA Secure Communication robustness test.
