Honeywell Process Controller Earns New Security Certification

Honeywell’s Experion PKS C300 Process Controller has achieved the new Mu Security Industrial Control Certification (MUSIC)

The MUSIC certification is designed specifically for IP-based controllers and is closely aligned with the emerging ISA-SP99 security standards. It enables organizations that rely on critical infrastructure or process control to ensure their network equipment and applications meet industry-defined benchmarks for safety, robustness, resiliency and conformance.

Mu Security’s used its Mu-4000 security analyzer to test the C300 controllers with over 60,000 communication variations in an attempt to crash the system.

The C300 controller was introduced in 2005 and underwent successful cyber security testing at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) the same year.
