Cybersecurity for OEMs: protecting equipment against cyber threats

These slides were presented at apc|m Europe 2019.

Highly-automated semiconductor manufacturing relies on machine-to-machine (M2M) and machine-to-host connectivity. But, this introduces a security risk for both equipment makers and factories. A virus on a single tool could cause costly factory-wide downtime and fabs are beginning to demand that OEMs plan for long-term OS maintenance and updates to their products. OEMs are under pressure to find economical methodologies to meet these demands for entire fleets of tools. We’ll introduce a cost-efficient process for maintaining security on a tool over a multi-decade lifespan, as well as an updated philosophy for long-term tool maintenance permitting OEMs to provide the level of ongoing support demanded by fabs.
