HHI's Smartship Solution gets LR digital type approval

Digital type approval delivers an assurance system to provide confidence in the market for the supply of digital components Digital type approval delivers an assurance system to provide confidence in the market for the supply of digital components

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has received type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for the network security digital component of its Integrated Smartship Solution (ISS).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The type approval confirms that the component performs its functionality seamlessly and is the first ever type approval of a digital component.

Digital type approval delivers an assurance system to provide confidence in the market for the supply of digital components and offers all the benefits of traditional type approval; reassurance on supply chain quality and robustness within the marine environment. Digital type approval can apply to both components within information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) systems.

Type approval of HHI’s first line network security component confirms it complies with the latest LR type approval test specifications and the requirements specified in LR’s type approval system procedure for components that are part of digital systems onboard ships.

HHI’s first line network security component establishes a barrier between controlled internal networks and untrusted outside networks. This helps to mitigate against information and operational vulnerabilities, as an increasing amount of data is stored, processed and transmitted by digital systems onboard ships.

“We are glad to receive this digital type approval certificate from LR for the first line network security component of our smart ship system, ISS. We will continue our efforts to lead the digitalisation of the marine and offshore industry in order to maximise the benefit for our customers with new technology, ensuring it is applied safely,” said HHI senior executive vice president, Mr. Hyung-Kwan Kim.

“We have been working closely with HHI to ensure that the first line network security component of their smart ship solution meets our digital type approval requirements. We are very pleased to issue this digital type approval certificate to HHI and we believe this is the first step in moving towards digital ships consisting of approved digital components with safeguards in place to protect against cyber incidents,” said Young-Doo Kim, LR’s North Asia technical support office manager. {/mprestriction}
