Corsha Wins MxD Project to Fortify Manufacturing Supply Chains

Corsha Inc., a Washington D.C.-based cybersec urity firm pioneering next generation Identity Provider for Machines, announced that MxD (Manufacturing x Digital) has selected Corsha to lead a project to secure the manufacturing supply chain and create playbooks that will provide guidance securely moving proprietary data across operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) systems. Corsha is collaborating with the Ohio State University Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME) on this effort.

Today, some manufacturers and their partners use varying forms of technology to track the movement of raw materials, provide end-to-end traceability of products, record quality control data, and securely automate supply chain processes. However, small to mid-sized manufacturers often lack the resources to assess the technologies available and implement them in a way that fits their security needs. Their typical challenges are integration with legacy manufacturing systems, scalability, data standardization/interoperability, and the cost to sustain solutions in all these areas.

“Corsha’s platform as the Identity Provider for Machines has the potential to transform the manufacturing supply chain by increasing transparency, cybersecurity, and efficiency,” said Anusha Iyer, CEO and Founder, Corsha. “One of our core missions is to safeguard proprietary data across manufacturing supply chains. We’re excited to partner with OSU on empowering the industry with tools and playbooks to adeptly identify use cases, mitigate risks, and adopt technologies tailored to their unique operational needs.”

Corsha will team with the Ohio State University Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME) to demonstrate an instantiation of Hyperledger Fabric within an operational manufacturing setting to move proprietary data securely across OT and IT systems. The final deliverable is an automated playbook to help manufacturers determine how they can leverage cutting-edge technologies like distributed ledger in ways that will bring the most value to their supply chain.

The Corsha and OSU team will deliver a set of tailored, web-based playbooks to address several manufacturing environments, potential technology implementations, and recommendations for activities that create the most value and potential for transferability. The software will have a web interface with the option for conversion to a stand-alone application.

“We will base our approach on a simple point system that prioritizes the need for assessing

specific supply chain use cases and can support intuitive implementation schemes in OT environments,” said Iyer. “The Corsha and OSU team has a deep background and past performance in the technologies, research, and processes to deliver on this MxD project call.”
