Secure Wireless Network Design

White paper Belden

Industrial Wireless―From Substitute to Solution


This White Paper Explains:

  • How to identify the specific security needs of industrial wireless networks
  • The process for assessing industrial control system (ICS) security of your network by using a Defense-in-Depth strategy
  • The different security mechanisms available for wireless network design, including effects & limitations


"While evaluating security needs, it is often difficult to see the big picture from the maze of various technologies and strategies."

"Poorly configured wireless communication systems introduce new risks to the network and the industrial applications that rely on it."

"It is important that a WLAN solution quickly detect anomalies in the wireless communication before an attacker can affect the plant operations."

"Options for securing Industrial WLAN networks are extremely diverse however, a combination of these features and functions will result in an organized construction kit rather than a patchwork of protection measures."
