Meet Data Security demands required by IEC, MEASNET and TR6 with Ammonit

Dear Reader,

If your valuable measurement data is manipulated or stolen before data processing, it may cause fatal consequences for the whole campaign and the planned investment. Data security is crucial and cannot be ignored today.

The German standard TR6 rev. 9 ("Determination of wind potential and energy yield") underlines the data quality check. According to TR6, it is essential to prove the integrity of measurement data. Measurement data has to be transparent and traceable from recording to data processing.

Furthermore, the MEASNET site assessment guideline focuses on data quality referring to data authenticity and integrity. The successor of the IEC 61400-12-1 will also include data quality standards for measurement campaigns referring to data security preventing any manipulation.

Ammonit offers traceable data security from recording to data processing by using latest security standards: Digital Signature and Encryption.

Our Meteo-40 data loggers and our online monitoring platform AmmonitOR can digitally sign data. Thus we ensure authenticity and integrity. A valid digital signature indicates that the data was created by a known sender (authenticity) and was not manipulated on transit (integrity).

To ensure that only authorized persons can read your data, our Meteo-40 data loggers and our online monitoring platform AmmonitOR can encrypt data in a way that only authorized persons can read it. The generated ciphertext can only be decrypted by the authorized recipient.

Ammonit protects your data by using the OpenPGP standard to encrypt and sign data utilizing public key cryptography. This globally accepted standard combines the advantages of asymmetric and symmetric cryptography: secure key transmission and high-speed communication.

Your benefits

  • Secure data transmission using high-grade security

  • Protect your data from any manipulation by digitally signing data files

  • Once encrypted data can only be decrypted by authorized persons - even Ammonit and IT authorities cannot access your data without the right key

  • Globally accepted OpenPGP encryption standard - GnuPG (free software) recommended for verification and decryption
