The ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) recently announced that two Honeywell industrial control system products have earned ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification.

The Experion C300 distributed control system (DCS) controller and Experion fieldbus interface module (FIM) have completed ISCI EDSA testing and now carry the ISASecure designation. The designation recognizes the integrity of the embedded devices as well as their production lifecycle and follows extensive testing for communication robustness, functional security and software development security. 

The Experion C300 DCS controller supports a range of process-control situations, including continuous and batch processes and integration with smart field devices. It handles process-control requirements from integration with batch systems to controlling devices on a variety of networks. The Experion FIM assists the integration of Foundation Fieldbus and the Experion system.

Honeywell’s latest demonstration of cybersecurity assurance comes on the heels of having earned its first EDSA certification in late 2011 for the company’s embedded safety manager device, which delivers safety assurance for operators who oversee industrial processes.

"Honeywell is proud to be able to demonstrate the security and robustness of our products," said Mike Baldi of the Honeywell Process Solutions Global Architect Team. "The ISASecure designation reflects our ability to deliver secure products to our customers and helps us meet their demands for security assurance."
