Naval Dome cyber security system to be tested by LR

Naval Dome has already tested its system against a cyber attack on a ship’s navigation system Naval Dome has already tested its system against a cyber attack on a ship’s navigation system

Israel-based cyber security company Naval Dome has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Lloyd’s Register (LR), with the aim of establishing standards and guidelines for maritime cyber security.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}As part of the agreement, LR will carry out a series of pilot tests using Naval Dome’s maritime cyber security system onboard a LR-classed vessel.

“The lack of guidelines and standards for creating a more secure maritime environment is the shipping industry’s Achilles’ heel,” said Itai Sela, chief executive officer, Naval Dome.

“With human operator error the cause of a significant number of security breaches, the MoU we have signed with Lloyd’s Register will help create a more effective end-to-end solution for cyber defence.”

“Our software engineering team (has previously) performed a series of cyber-attacks on live navigation systems, engines and other machinery control systems. The attack was able to shift the vessel’s reported position, mislead the radar display, turn on and disable machinery, and override the fuel control, steering and ballast systems. In a second test using the Naval Dome software, we carried out the same attack but were unable to penetrate any of the ship’s systems.”{/mprestriction}

  • EIZO secures LR type approval for maritime monitors

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
