KNX Secure

Connecting you to the very best in security

Nowadays, it is not only protection from tampering that is hugely important, but also the issue of data security. That’s why Gira has implemented the KNX Secure standard – the world’s first manufacturer- and application-independent security standard for smart buildings – in a wide range of products. With this new approach, Gira is setting new standards in terms of data integrity, authentication, encryption and data currency.

 

Highlights, facts and benefits

  • Optimum security for the KNX installation
  • Optimum security level – for each individual system: the electrician decides which security level is set
  • Protection from unauthorised access to the installed KNX Secure devices by third parties (e.g. tampering with the device configuration)
  • Protection from eavesdropping of data communication between KNX Secure devices
  • The cross-brand standard offers interoperability with the KNX products offered by other manufacturers
  • A seamless combination of secure and non-secure communication can be set (even on a single device)

KNX Secure products

KNX Secure is already available for an increasing number of Gira KNX devices. This reliably protects transmitted data whilst also securing the KNX protocol with encryption and
authentication.

Functionality

On the one hand, KNX Secure extends the KNX IP protocol to ensure reliable protection of transmitted data (KNX IP Secure). On the other hand, KNX Secure protects the traditional KNX protocol using encryption and authentication. The safety mechanisms are already in place during the protected start-up of the KNX system via the ETS. Subsequently, during operation, data communication, e.g. between actuators and sensors, is effectively protected against unauthorised access, tampering and eavesdropping.
