Abstract
To date, researches in the field of robotic are very relevant. Robotic complexes can improve productivity several-fold, without making mistakes due to human factor. Such complexes are referred to as cyber-physical systems. An integral part of cyber-physical systems is the conrol system. This system, as well as any information channel, must be protected from computer attacks in order to avoid interception of cyber-physical systems by intruders. In the article the developed robotic complex and the system that allows managing this complex using a reliable cryptographically stable connection, are described. The main element of this system is a cryptographic chip stm32f415. It allows reducing of the load on the central processor to perform control algorithms, freeing it from cryptographic operations, thereby guaranteeing the time gain.

Key words
Control channel, cyber-physical systems, robotic systems, cryptographic algorithms.
