Eviden, the Atos Group business leading in cybersecurity with deep expertise in critical communications, and Westermo one of the leading specialists for industrial data communication, announced their partnership. Together, the two companies seek to develop cutting-edge solutions for secure communication in the industrial and railway environment and are relying on crypto agile OT and IoT devices for this purpose. In times of rapidly changing threat situations and multiple attack vectors, these solutions enable rapid adaptability for operators of critical infrastructures and thus protect investments.
The cooperation between Eviden and Westermo kicks off with a project in Germany in which industrial managed Layer 3 Gigabit switches (Lynx 3510) from Westermo are equipped with Eviden’s pluggable HSMs (Hardware Security Modules) in microSD format. Special crypto-software will be installed on the cards to further secure these switches and prepare them for future cybersecurity scenarios. The crypto-switches ensure the longer lifecycle of the switch platform in terms of investment protection. By relying on replaceable HSMs and thus on crypto-agility, the solution ensures continuous compliance with the highest security requirements.
With this partnership, Eviden demonstrates its extensive expertise in cybersecurity for the Industrial IoT (IIoT) and shows the growing need for crypto agile solutions in the industry.

The new version 2 of Eviden’s cryptovision TSE has been certified by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
A TSE (Technical Security Equipment) is a security module for cash registers designed to prevent tax fraud. It ensures that every transaction is logged and digitally signed. Since January 1, 2020, every electronic or computerized cash register in Germany must be equipped with a TSE. From 2024, the TSE obligation will also apply to taximeters. The structure and functionality of a TSE are described in the Technical Guideline TR-03153 (Technical Security Device for Electronic Recording Systems) of the BSI.
The cryptovision TSE is an established TSE implementation from Eviden, version 2 of which has now been certified. It enables retail, catering and cab companies to record their transactions in a legally compliant manner in accordance with legal requirements and BSI specifications.

Everything you need to know as a beginner on the subject of post-quantum cryptography, explained in an understandable way on 24 pages, in a German and an English version – this is the concept of the new Atos whitepaper on the subject of post-quantum cryptography. It explains the most important algorithms in a clear manner, avoiding overly complicated mathematics. Since the year 2022 will go down in history as the one in which the standardization of post-quantum cryptography first took concrete shape, this aspect is also highlighted. And finally, the white paper addresses the challenges of the coming years. These include bringing the new methods into the existing chip architectures despite long keys and, in some cases, poorer performance. If you want to know more about these topics, you can download the Atos whitepaper on post-quantum cryptography here.
