Hi,

 

Please check the Security chapter from Help Center: http://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx_hc/thingworx_8_hc/en/#page/ThingWorx%2FHelp%2FComposer%2FSecur...

 

Hope it helps,

I recommend you can start with our security white paper

https://www.ptc.com/en/resources/iiot/white-paper/securing-architecture-infrastructure-iot-ecosystem

 

We support several secure protocols for data in transit SSL/TLS, HTTPS/WSS. The agent also allows for a few different encryption libraries.

 

Access wise Thingworx has auth and encrypted/hashed password storage

but Thingworx also can work with AD and other IdM systems

 

At rest you can store your data in an encrypted database although there will be an impact on performance.

 

For data separation, you can use multiple persistence providers

 

Hope that helps

Hi Pai,

 

Could you pls help me out with the elaborated way to achieve the solution you mentioned for Data at rest and also pls let me know how and at what extent it will impact the performance?

 

Thanks

Re: How to implement security for data at rest and in transit?

Easiest way would be to encrypt the drive itself, which is what I should've said vs. encrypt the database.

I am actually not certain if we support encrypted DB

I apologize but I'm not much of an expert on how to set it up, so I can't give you guidance with that.
