Manufacturers and IoT innovators face increasing pressure to secure IoT devices against attacks and ensure the privacy and safety of end users. At the same time, tight budgets and product development cycles make it difficult to embed strong security into lightweight devices and complex supply chains.
Keyfactor provides an end-to-end IoT identity platform that enables manufacturers to embed device identity at design, maintain strong cryptographic protection, and secure firmware and software updates throughout the device lifecycle.
The Advantages of PKI for IoT
PKI is the de facto standard for IoT identity. Digital certificates issued from a trusted PKI offer a secure identity layer that is both scalable and lightweight to enable authentication, encryption, firmware signing and verification on millions of embedded IoT devices.
Every device needs a trusted and unique identity to verify authenticity and securely connect within the IoT ecosystem.
Firmware updates must be digitally signed to prevent tampering and ensure only authorized code runs on the device.
Encrypting sensitive data at-rest and in-transit is becoming increasingly important to comply with data privacy requirements.
IoT device security is critical, but getting it right isn’t easy.
- Zero-Trust Manufacturing: Complex supply chains and remote manufacturing facilities make it difficult to provision identities and ensure trust.
- Low-Power Devices: Lightweight and embedded IoT devices have minimal compute and power resources to work with.
- Inconsistent Connectivity: Devices with limited or unreliable network connectivity create unique challenges for firmware and security updates.
Trusted IoT identity and security from device design and manufacturing to end-of-life.
Keyfactor Control provides a complete and scalable solution for IoT identity – from a secure root of trust to flexible APIs and integrations.
- Identity Provisioning & Lifecycle: Deploy, manage and update digital certificates across your connected devices – from provisioning and in-field commissioning to renewal and revocation.
- Secure Root of Trust: Run your PKI on-prem, in the cloud, or as-a-service with a dedicated, cloud-hosted PKI that’s purpose built for your IoT deployment and operated by our team of experts.
- Secure Code Signing: Get a centralized tool to secure code signing operations at scale and enable secure firmware OTA updates and implement Secure Boot.
- IoT SDK: Give developers a flexible, open-source SDK and C-Agent to implement custom functionality in devices such as key generation, key storage and digital signature verification.
