Networking devices and machinery is in full swing. However, despite all the Industry 4.0 enthusiasm, there are voices of caution: Secure your communication. For this, identification of the participants is one requirement and special SD cards offer a surprisingly simple and flexible solution—ready for post-quantum cryptography.

For IT security experts, the three steps that open a “secure channel” are obvious: identification, authentication and authorization. A two-step authentication process can significantly improve security. The token used for authentication can also be used for encrypting the communication content.
