VAULTiTRUST is a trusted security personalization and provisioning service for Internet of Things (IoT) hardware and software security solutions. While using VAULTiTRUST, WISeKey customers can now introduce highly secure IoT connected devices without the burden or additional manufacturing costs associated with security implementation.
The IoT market is booming. The ability to authenticate and remotely manage millions of networked, automated devices and equipment is becoming pervasive−from the factory floor to the hospital operating room to the residential home−everything, from refrigerators to wine bottles, is connecting and communicating via the Internet. Gartner, a technology research and advisory company, says the IoT market, which excludes PCs, tablets and smartphones, will grow to 26 billion units installed in 2020 representing an almost 30-fold increase from 0.9 billion in 2009. However, the IoT market cannot reach its fullest potential unless security and privacy are addressed.
Best-in-class IoT security requires that each device carry an embedded secret and/or unique identifier. The highest level of trust can only be achieved when provisioning and personalization are done in the most secure manner. This extra step in production can add unwanted costs and delay time to market for IoT device manufacturers. With the new VAULTiTRUST service, customers can directly purchase fully provisioned solutions from WISeKey that have personalization built-in at the chip level. As a result customers can maintain focus on their core competencies while significantly speeding the manufacturing process because they will no longer need to install a secure zone in their production line or oversee provisioning.
As a leading IoT security visionary, WISeKey continues to innovate to meet customer IoT security demands and has helped many customers overcome the unique security challenges of connected devices. Recent examples include:
