Pathscape V3 and Security Domains

New Cybersecurity laws require Pathscape to use passwords when configuring Ethernet devices

Background Information

On January 1, 2020, California will be the first state to enforce cybersecurity and IoT related legislation. Oregon, New York and Massachusetts are following suit. California’s law is Title 1.81.26 “Security of Connected Devices” and mandates that we equip our products with security features that are appropriate to the nature and function of the device. By law, this encompasses all products that are assigned Internet Protocol addresses which can connect to the Internet directly or indirectly. Pathway Connectivity, a division of Acuity Brands, will only ship compliant devices regardless of the jurisdiction into which they are sold.

The law requires us to either supply a unique password for our products (see Local Security below) or requires the users to change the password before being able to use it (See Creating a Security Domain below). With Pathscape v3 we provide features that protect our products from unauthorized access or use by enforcing passwords. Furthermore, Pathway Connectivity does not collect or store personal information on our devices.

Ten facts about what this means to you

  1. When using products shipped after January 1, 2020, Pathscape will require a single password to allow configuration of all the devices on your network.
  2. Products shipped before January 1, 2020 will continue to function without passwords all thclassfoJanuary 1, 2020, Pathscape will require a singllass="clearfoissigned Inte1, 2020, Pathscape will requip oyevicesenfhe devic20,, 2020re a singllass="clearfoe January 1, 2020 Pathscape will requipernersoenf Ptduaon ofg/Arallcts (see;eviducts (see Locar nek.
