The Suite targets device manufacturers and service providers who need to address the long-term privacy and safety issues of their devices and protect their business models from attack.
The comprehensive IoT security solution builds on 25 years of Kudelski Group innovation in protecting digital TV content on more than 500 million devices, as well as its strong expertise in cybersecurity. It provides the ability to ensure network and device integrity as well as control access to business-critical data coming from IoT devices, thereby enabling and protecting new IoT business models, both at launch and when the system comes under attack.
The Suite provides a flexible, modular approach to device, data and local/edge decision-making protection by offering a choice of dedicated hardware security chips, embedded IP blocks and/or advanced software protection techniques. This offers a customized level of security depending on the threat model agreed with the customer.
The first release of the IoT Security Suite contains a dedicated secure element designed to resist the highest level of attacks even when operating in IoT battery-powered devices. The secure element comes provisioned with credentials that are authenticated directly by the Kudelski Group’s cloud-based servers using techniques proven in the competitive pay-TV space and guaranteeing the identity and authenticity of devices embedding the chip.
