Thales presents its cyber-secured solutions for more connected rail transport at InnoTrans 2022





Among its broad range of innovative devices and systems, Thales is showcasing its Cybels Key Management Centre and brand new digitalised maintenance access dedicated to highly secure rail systems.

As wireless network connectivity makes railways an easier target for hackers, Thales is drawing its long experience in the defence, space, finance and industrial sectors to apply its expertise in Security Operation Centres for management and surveillance of critical IT systems in the rail transport sector.

As a major player in security incident detection and response, Thales is presenting its innovations at InnoTrans 2022 in Berlin from September 20 to 23 (stands #670 - #571, Hub27), as part of ongoing efforts to make secure and sustainable mobility a reality.

ThalesFaced with the rapid urbanisation of our societies and the new challenges posed by climate change and soft mobility, rail transport is undergoing an unprecedented revival through new high-speed links and the renaissance of night trains. Like any critical infrastructure system, a rail system fulfills vital missions and is subject to a number of risks, including today an overwhelming increase in cyber attacks. Wireless network connectivity is making railroads an easier target for hackers.

Innovative solutions for secure maintenance and cyber threat detection

Based on its leadership in command and signalling technology, Thales designed an innovative automated and online national rail key management system to secure the ETCS (European Train Control System) communications. This new solution, Cybels Key Management Centre, provides cryptographic key management services for ETCS railway operations to secure radio-based communication between infrastructure and rolling stock and ensure the reliability of the information communicated. Thales is contributing to the modernisation of the railway by delivering an Online Key Management System for Network Rail in the United Kingdom as part of the East Coast Digital Programme that will be deployed on the East Coast Main Line.

In addition, at InnoTrans 2022, Thales is unveiling a brand new solution, Secure Remote Operating Control Centre, to ensure digitalised maintenance of unmanned railways or metros through a military-grade secure network capitalising on Cryptosmart. To optimize resources, operational staff can visit the operation control centre virtually and maintain equipment remotely. The Secure Remote OCC ensures a continuous monitoring of the infrastructure, taking advantage of an expert level opinion to mitigate the risks of remote connections.

Wide-ranging expertise from cyber threat intelligence to managed detection and response services

Thales products and services enable customers to detect the most advanced cyber threats on the rail network and to take decisive action to secure their sensitive IT and OT environments by monitoring a wide range of information on a daily basis with a specialisation on the transport vertical.

In addition, Thales manages nine Security Operation Centres (SOC) that combine 24/7 threat detection and analysis capabilities and deliver responses in compliance with the countrys cybersecurity infrastructure and policies. They currently form an international network operating according to the follow the sun model which offers continuous support to more than a hundred customers around the world, with an unequalled level of responsiveness and flexibility.

Adressing the entire cyber value chain

Thales offers cyber secured solutions for the transport market combining rail standards compliance (i.e. IEC 62443 and CLC/TS 50701) with its strong experience in critical systems for aviation, space, banking and military operations. Benefiting from its expertise in transport, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and cybersecurity, Thales's solutions are designed for cybersecurity resilience to cope with system longevity.

Digitalisation is helping to make trains faster, safer and more comfortable. But it also exposes railways to cyberattacks because the more connected devices there are, the more opportunities there will be for hackers to break into the system. The challenge is to safeguard the critical system by detecting and protecting its assets at risk. This is why Thales rail solutions are Cybersecured by Design . By protecting the operational services of our rail customers---and the data of their passengers-Thales ensures the integrity, availability and confidentiality of their digital transformation. - Beno t Bruy re, Ground Transportation Cybersecurity Authority at Thales

As a global leader in cybersecurity for more than 40 years, Thales is involved at every level of the cyber value chain, offering solutions ranging from risk assessment to critical infrastructure protection, supported by comprehensive threat detection and response capabilities. Facing a constantly evolving cyber threat environment, Thales's teams are proud to ensure the safety, security, availability and resilience of its customers' transportation systems. - Pierre-Yves Jolivet, Vice-President, Cyber Defence Solutions at Thales
