A Secure Data Communication Protocol for Building Automation and Control Networks
BACnet Secure Connect (BACnet/SC) is an addendum to the existing BACnet specification and utilizes the TLS protocol to authenticate devices on your building automation network and encrypt their communication.
Authentication: Every device on the BACnet/SC network has their identity verified prior to being granted access to communicate on the network. Without being authenticated, unverified devices cannot join the network, and cannot communicate with other verified devices.
Encryption: All of the information going through the BACnet/SC network is end-to-end encrypted, preventing bad actors from intercepting and decoding traffic. This prevents hackers from altering system performance and operation.
Integrity: Information sent through a BACnet/SC connection is verified to be authentic, unaltered data from the original source.
