Using a Security Provisioning Entity, the Security Administrator configures the Controllers for OPC UA security and rolls out the security policy required for the site per Controller, as shown in Figure 5. The security policy contains, amongst others, certificates, roles, and user management. For PubSub, this includes the configuration of the SecurityKeyServer (see OPC 10000-14). The Security Administrator may use a GlobalDiscoveryServer ( see OPC 10000-12) for security configuration.
