Veracity Industrial Networks and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories Release ‘Chess Master’ Update
ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Sept. 26, 2017 -- Veracity Industrial Networks, an award-winning developer of Industrial SDN-based technology for operational networks, today announced that the company, in partnership with Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, has released a detailed white paper dealing specifically with technologies being applied to the U.S. Department of Energy's "Chess Master" project.

The white paper, titled "Purpose-Engineered, Active-Defense Cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems,"covers details of the Schweitzer-Veracity development of a new network design for industrial networks, using "Software Defined Networking" (SDN) technology.
"We are honored to be working with such a great team on this important project," said Paul Myer, Veracity's CEO.
