Abstract. Modern, intelligent measuring systems are increasingly distributed and networked or even virtualized. In order to guarantee the security of the measurements, security gateways are an effective means of protecting the local sensors and displays from manipulations from public wide area networks. On the other hand this means a complex, tiered eco system, therefore we are setting up a testbed for conducting further research on this topic concerning new innovative security approaches beyond traditional public key infrastructure and their influence on system architectures, secure remote verification and legally conform update mechanisms.
