Selectron Systems AG


The digitization of the railways is moving at high speed. The flip side of the coin: The rapid pace of technological development makes rail vehicles vulnerable to cybercrime. All the more important is that you can rely on someone who keeps an eye on the big picture. Selectron is on the spot with forward-looking cybersecurity solutions for secure, digital vehicle communication.

Essential for the digitalization of rail transport: cybersecurity
The mobility of the future calls for new concepts. For intelligent transport solutions. For predictive maintenance. For automatic train operation. However, these concepts can only be implemented with the ever-present networking and (online) connectivity of rail vehicles. But the consequences also include security vulnerabilities with potentially serious consequences - from serious economic losses to endangering passenger safety.
In short, cybersecurity belongs to the elementary prerequisites of increasingly digitalized rail transport. To this end, Selectron combines safety-certified railway hardware with powerful cybersecurity functions plus customised services to create a holistic cybersecurity architecture. Not only does the company rely on first-class products, it also draws on the excellent experience of the Selectron team.

Defence-in-Depth protection for maximum cyber resilience of your rail vehicles
Protecting trains from cyberattacks is a complex task. Selectron supports you with its pioneering Defense-in-Depth security concept consisting of several sophisticated protection layers, modular in design and optimized for different areas of application. If hackers crack one layer, the next and differently structured layer follows.
Selectron is there to help you seal security gaps before anyone even opens them. Conventional "security products" such as the Security Gateway (SGW) secure access. Security certificates and public key infrastructures (PKI) assign digital identities to devices or software. Like an early warning system, the Selectron Threat Detection Solution (TDS) detects anomalies in data traffic within the train network as well as in traffic to and from the vehicle manufacturer or operator. In combination, Selectron achieves what really matters: maximum security thanks to Cyber Security by Design.
