Communication between the process stations of the distributed control system is carried out. By the supervision and therapeutic systems of the stations communication process diagnosis is performed. Supervision and therapeutic systems are responsible for the security of transmitted data. The security is considered in this article mainly in the aspect of resistance to external destructive factors on the data transmission process. It is assumed that the transmission security can be provided by mechanisms protecting the integrity of the transmitted data. Correctness of the data is controlled by using one-way hash function calculated on the basis of the transmitted value variable and also is attached to the transmitted data. This allows to maintain the integrity of the transmitted process data. A solutions using one-way hash function to protection of the transmission before changing message contents (caused by eg. intruder interference) are proposed in the article.
