With the Internet of things (IoT) devices fast growing and their applications continuously transforming the industries, cyber-attacks through IoT devices have become more frequent, and also have imposed major threats to most ICT products from local industries. The sector of intelligent streetlight systems is no exception.
To strengthen the capacity of domestic intelligent streetlight systems against such cyber-attack threats, with the support of Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) of Ministry of Economic Affairs (MoEA), Taiwan Association of Information and Communication Standards (TAICS) invited companies including CHT Security Co., Ltd.; Delta Electronics, Inc.; Taiwan LED Lighting Industry Association; Sylvania Taiwan Co., Ltd.; OMA Lighting Co., Ltd; ARM Holdings, plc.; ORing Industrial Networking Corp.; InSynerger Technology Co., Ltd.; AAEON Technology Inc.; MiTAC Information Technology Corp.; National Yunlin University of Science and Technology; A Test Lab Techno Corp.; Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd., as well as association members from Chunghwa Telecom Co., Ltd.; TÜV Rheinland Taiwan Ltd.; Onward Security; Egis Technology Inc.; Industrial Technology Research Institute; Electronics Testing Center, Taiwan; Institute for Information Industry; Telecom Technology Center; National Chiao Tung University; Underwriters Laboratories Taiwan Co., Ltd. to jointly discuss and establish the “Intelligent streetlight system security standards” which is based on international standards and specifications.
This series of standards will help domestic intelligent streetlight system companies to introduce cyber-attack countermeasures in their product development, thereby reducing the cost of subsequent repairs, increasing product value, fulfilling international market needs and enhancing export competitiveness.
