It’s not enough that your robot simply connect to the internet. It should be connected securely, so no one has an access to your devices without your approval.
At Husarion we address your robot’s security in a few different areas:
a) Connection between CORE2 and cloud platform - every single message is encrypted and full SSL protocol is implemented, both for CORE2 and CORE2-ROS.
c) Robot sharing settings - security needn’t mean that only you can use your robots. Thanks to sharing settings you can share your robots with your friends for a fixed amount of time (a few minutes, a few hours, a few days, … or forever) and with specified access rights (read-only, full control etc.). After you select the access rights, you can decide how you will share your robot.There are two ways:
- Through a “magic link” - anyone who has the link can access the robot - even without an account at cloud.husarion.com.
- Sharing only to cloud.husarion.com users. With this option, your friends see your robot at their robot list, and even can change it’s firmware if you give them liberal access rights.
d) Web console to CORE2-ROS: you can access Linux console of your CORE2-ROS from your cloud.husarion.com user account. It doesn’t matter which network your robot is connected to. The connection is done using the https://www.zerotier.com/ project that provides a secure and effortless VPN setup between your computer and your CORE2-ROS.
e) Run air-gapped robots: the most security sensitive robots can be operated without any access to the internet at all, thanks to our offline SDK.
You don’t need to be an internet technologies expert to be able to manage your CORE2 based robots online without worrying about an unauthorized access to your devices. You can focus just on your robotics application instead.
