Innovative User Interfaces & Visualization Techniques

On February 1, 2016 the BMBF funded joint project fastvpn – Network Infrastructure for Industry 4.0 has started. This project addresses important problems of industry 4.0 and SCADA systems in small and medium businesses. The main goal is the creation of suitable and intuitive network solutions that meets of both high performance real time requirements and increased security needs. These solutions should provide an easy way to regulate access to devices, data as well as functionalities and to secure data streams independently of used applications protocols. To this end state-of-the-art cryptography will be combined with separation based on virtualization and micro kernels. By design decisions regarding the choice of existing algorithms and hardware as well as in-house developments, we aim to ensure real time capabilities of the system.

To increase usability, modern methods of human-machine interaction and interactive information visualization will be investigated, evaluated, and implemented. These aspects of hardware, software, algorithms, as well as usage concepts will be combined in a comprehensive demonstration platform.

Network separation to isolate different security zones

fastvpn is a joint work with Dresden companies Teleconnect GmbH and Kernkonzept GmbH as well as the chair of privacy and security. Furthermore, we are supported by our associated partner Netcom Connected Services GmbH (fomerly Vattenfall Europe Netcom GmbH). fastvpn is part of the fast cluster project, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the development program “Zwanzig20 – Partnerschaft für Innovation” (Twenty20 – Partnership for Innovation).

fastvpn Web Configuration Tool

During the project, we developed a web-based configuration and monitoring application for fastvpn. In its first development stage, before the availability of the fastvpn hardware, the application is consisting of a responsive, interactive client interface and a mock-up server that uses simulated data.
