2013 – Secure Networks For Critical Infrastructures

8. Xyna Konferenz
13.11.2013 at the Kurhaus, Wiesbaden

More than 160 guests from IT, telecommunications, the energy sector, industry, research and development spent a day discussing issues relating to secure communication networks for critical infrastructures.

Xyna H2 Networks –
High Performance & High Security Communication Networks

The Austrian bestselling author Marc Elsberg (Blackout – Morgen ist es zu spät) reported on the exciting, surprising and sometimes frightening research for his book and impressively showed what consequences a long-term failure of the energy networks can have in our highly interconnected and thoroughly industrialized world.

Harald A. Summa iis founder and managing director of DE-CIX, the world's largest Internet node in Frankfurt, and initiator of the eco Verband der deutschen Internetwirtschaft. He presented the infrastructure and the security measures at DE-CIX and also answered critical questions regarding the current discussion on wiretapping and spying activities of international secret services in our networks.

The President of the GIP Research Institute, Dr. Bernd Reifenhäuser, presented a revolutionary (and patented) approach for the energy networks of the future with the approach of a packet-oriented digital grid - and discussed the question of whether today's IP networks are even a suitable, secure communication platform for the networks of the future.

Dr. Alexander Ebbes is vice president of the GIP Research Institute, CTO of GIP AG and chief architect of the Xyna Factory automation platform. He showed with the contract-based approach of Xyna H² Networks an innovative idea and first realization approaches for high-performance and high-security networks for critical infrastructures.
