IoT, SCADA & Industry


The integration of IIoT devices, Industrial control systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are critical components of modern industrial operations, controlling and monitoring various processes in sectors such as energy, manufacturing, transportation, and critical infrastructure. However, these systems are increasingly vulnerable to cyber threats due to their interconnectedness with other IT systems and the internet. These systems are often targets for cyber attacks, including industrial espionage, sabotage through ransomware, and data breaches. Additionally, the complexity of regulatory compliance in different industries and the need for securing a diverse and sprawling supply chain further exacerbate these challenges. Naoris Protocol offers a robust solution by leveraging a post-quantum layer-1 blockchain, dPoSec trust consensus and distributed AI to validate Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices, secure industrial networks, and ensure the integrity of ICS/SCADA systems. Its real-time detection capabilities significantly reduce cyber threats across the industrial landscape, enhancing operational resilience and safety. By enabling immutable on-chain recording and proof of device operations, the Naoris Protocol facilitates trust and security across multi-vendor IIoT ecosystems, streamlining compliance and enhancing the overall cybersecurity posture of industrial environments.


Critical Infrastructure Attacks

Cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, such as power grids, water treatment facilities, and transportation systems, can have severe consequences, including disruption of essential services, environmental disasters, and potential loss of life. Ensuring the security and integrity of ICS/SCADA systems is paramount.

Malware and Ransomware Threats

Malware and ransomware attacks on industrial control systems can disrupt operations, compromise data, and demand ransom payments, leading to significant financial losses and operational downtime.

Insider Threats

Insiders with privileged access to ICS/SCADA systems pose a significant risk, as they can intentionally or unintentionally cause system disruptions, data breaches, or sabotage.

Legacy System Vulnerabilities

Many industrial control systems are based on legacy technologies that lack robust security features, making them vulnerable to cyber threats and in need of security upgrades or replacements.

Supply Chain Risks

The complex supply chain of IIoT devices and components introduces potential vulnerabilities that can be exploited by threat actors, necessitating comprehensive supply chain security measures.

Regulatory Compliance

Industrial organizations must comply with various cybersecurity regulations and standards, such as NERC CIP, IEC 62443, and NIST SP 800-82, which can be challenging and resource-intensive.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs)

Sophisticated and well-funded adversaries, such as nation-states or advanced cybercriminal groups, can launch targeted and sustained attacks against industrial control systems, posing significant risks to operations and safety.


The Naoris Protocol addresses these challenges by providing the following solutions:

  • Enhanced protection against espionage and breaches via post-quantum blockchain consensus and distributed AI validates IIoT devices, ensuring their integrity and trustworthiness within industrial networks and secure industrial data, ensuring its confidentiality and integrity.

  • Real-time threat detection through continuous monitoring and analysis, the protocol enables real-time detection of cyber threats, including malware, ransomware, and advanced persistent threats (APTs), minimizing the impact of attacks on industrial operations.

  • Immutable Record of Device Operations The Naoris Protocol secures an immutable record of device operations, processes, and overall health on the blockchain, providing an auditable trail for compliance and forensic analysis.

  • Streamlined Supply Chain Security By operating on a decentralized network and sharing proof of trust among ecosystem partners, the protocol simplifies supply chain security, enabling secure data exchange and API connections in real-time.

  • Regulatory Compliance Facilitation The immutable record of device operations and security measures implemented by the Naoris Protocol aids in demonstrating compliance with various cybersecurity regulations and standards applicable to industrial environments.


The Naoris Protocol offers a transformative approach to cybersecurity in industrial environments, addressing the unique challenges posed by ICS/SCADA systems and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and from espionage to compliance. By leveraging post-quantum cryptography and distributed AI technologies, it enhances the security and resilience of industrial networks, detecting cyber threats in real-time, and streamlines compliance efforts. This innovative solution marks a significant step forward in securing critical infrastructure, ensuring operational continuity, and safeguarding industrial environments from cyber threats.
