With the growth of IoT deployments globally, the security of devices and client data stored or collected within the device has become one of the biggest concerns across the ecosystem and its users. IDEMIA, member of the Trusted Connectivity Alliance (TCA1), and Kudelski IoT are taking on the challenge of data privacy and device protection with a simplified, end-to-end security solution for IoT deployments designed to securely connect devices to the cloud. This solution is particularly relevant since OEMs and service providers are looking for solutions using embedded Secure Elements to protect content.

IDEMIA’s IoT SAFE solution provides the added benefit of remote management and provisioning of over-the-air (OTA) security certificates and application updates directly to the highly secure SIM environment. This also provides the ability to keep the solution up-to-date with evolving security standards.

By seamlessly integrating the Kudelski IoT Root of Trust applet and keySTREAM system within IDEMIA’s secure elements and OTA platform, OEMs, MNOs and service providers now have a solution to leverage for their own security services for their customers and end users.

The combination of IDEMIA and Kudelski’s leading positions within their respective areas of excellence ensures a simplified approach to enabling security for IoT devices and platforms, allowing plug & play installation for connected security use cases.

“The industry has been expecting standards to be defined for IoT Security. Together with GSMA and the TCA, those standards and guidelines are now in place with IoT SAFE. Thanks to our partnership with Kudelski, IDEMIA is proud to bring this technology breakthrough solution to the market. The market can now benefit from an independent technology with the added benefit of ensuring end-to-end device and data security for IoT,” said Fabien Jautard Executive Vice-President for Mobile Operators activities at IDEMIA.

“By combining IDEMIA’s Mobile Network SIMs and OTA platform with Kudelski IoT keySTREAM into a solution specifically tailored for cellular machine-to-machine communications, we bring to the market the first truly standard and dedicated end-to-end IoT security solution for mobile networks,” said Hardy Schmidbauer, SVP, Kudelski IoT.

1 TCA is a global, non-profit industry association which is working to enable a secure connected future. Its members are participants within the SIM ecosystem, which is the most widely distributed, secure application delivery platform in the world.
