Abstract
(DE) Die Erfindung betrifft ein Verfahren zur Sicherung eines vernetzten Systems (S), das über einen Systembus (SB) verbundene Systemkomponenten (SK1...SKn) mit Hardware- und Software-Modulen aufweist. Erfindungsgemäß weisen die Systemkomponenten (SK1...SKn) jeweils ein Authentifizierungsmerkmal (K1...Kn) für die Hardware-Module und/oder jeweils ein weiteres Authentifizierungs- beziehungsweise ein Integritätssicherungsmerkmal (S1...Sn) für die Software-Module auf. Weiter ist ein am Systembus (SB) angeschaltetes, zentrales Prüfmodul (PM) zur Überprüfung der Authentifizierungsmerkmale (K1...Kn) und/oder der Integritätssicherungsmerkmale (S1...Sn) vorgesehen.
(EN) The invention relates to a method for securing a network (S) that comprises system components (SK1...SKn) with hardware and software modules linked via a system bus (SB) The inventive system components (SK1...SKn) are further characterized by one authentication feature (K1...Kn) each for the hardware modules and/or by one further authentication or integrity-securing feature (S1...Sn) each for the software modules. A center test module (PM) is connected to the system bus (SB) and is used to test the authentication features (K1...Kn) and/or the integrity securing features (S1...Sn).
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de sécurisation d'un système (S) mis en réseau présentant des composants système (Sk1 Skn) reliés par un bus système (SB) et comportant des modules équipements et logiciels. Selon l'invention, les composants système (Sk1 Skn) présentent respectivement une caractéristique d'authentification (K1 Kn) pour les modules équipements et/ou respectivement une autre caractéristique d'authentification ou de sécurisation de l'intégrité (S1 Sn) pour les modules logiciels. Le dispositif selon l'invention comporte également un module de contrôle central (PM) raccordé au bus système (SB), destiné à contrôler les caractéristiques d'authentification (K1 Kn) et/ou les caractéristiques de sécurisation de l'intégrité (S1 Sn).
