Secure Password Management for the Siemens TIA Portal

Wibu-Systems has developed a password provider for the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal V14 SP1 or higher of Siemens based on their Password API. The engineering data that are stored in the TIA Portal are often very sensitive in nature. While online teamwork is highly effective, logical access controls are paramount to make sure that only entitled users can view and edit only those projects they have full rights to. With Siemens’ Password API, Wibu-Systems created a password provider that streamlines know-how and write protection and, in turn, increases the access control and engineering data protection measures. Rather than being susceptible to disclosure, passwords can now be safely stored in Wibu-Systems’ CmDongles, hardware secure repositories that come in several form factors. Access controls by timer or unit counter govern the ability to access or edit the engineering data.
