Kudelski IoT and Microchip Technology Solve Challenges & Pitfalls of IoT Provisioning With Joint Security Solution

Integration of Kudelski IoT keySTREAM with ECC608 TrustMANAGER simplifies secure provisioning and lifecycle management and sets a new standard in device security and management

CHESEAUX-SUR-LAUSANNE, Switzerland, and PHOENIX, AZ, USA, April 2 2024 – Kudelski IoT, a division of the Kudelski Group (SIX: KUD.S), and Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP), today announced the integration of Kudelski IoT's keySTREAM with Microchip's ECC608 security ICs and TrustMANAGER. This strategic partnership marks a significant advancement in IoT device security, enabling dynamic, cloud-based provisioning and lifecycle management directly in the field. This avoids the complexities associated with in-factory provisioning and the risks associated with transporting key material throughout the value chain.

The integration of the ECC608 TrustMANAGER with Kudelski IoT’s keySTREAM platform provides a comprehensive solution for secure, scalable, and efficient device management. It facilitates the creation and management of a dynamic certificate chain, allowing devices to be provisioned and managed securely throughout their lifecycle. This approach not only streamlines the manufacturing process but also meets the increasing demands for security in the IoT space.

Frédéric Thomas, CTO of Kudelski IoT, emphasized the importance of the collaboration: "As IoT devices become more embedded in our everyday lives and critical industries, the need for robust security solutions has never been greater. Our partnership with Microchip Technology and the integration of keySTREAM with their ECC608 TrustMANAGER is a significant milestone. It not only advances our mission to secure the IoT ecosystem but also simplifies the provisioning and management of IoT devices, making security accessible to all."

The ECC608 TrustMANAGER, enhanced by Kudelski IoT’s keySTREAM, enables users to set up their own root Certificate Authority (CA) and manage public key infrastructure (PKI) securely and efficiently. Devices can be activated and managed in the field without the need for supply chain customization, ensuring compliance with evolving security standards and regulations.

"As the IoT landscape evolves, so does the complexity of securing it. Our collaboration with Kudelski IoT through the integration of their keySTREAM technology with our ECC608 TrustMANAGER is a testament to our commitment to not just meet, but exceed, the security needs of today's and tomorrow's IoT ecosystems," said Nuri Dagdeviren, Corporate Vice President of Microchip’s Secure Products Group. "This partnership empowers our customers to deploy, manage, and secure their IoT devices more efficiently and reliably, ensuring their products meet the highest standards of security and compliance. We are excited to set a new benchmark in IoT security together with Kudelski IoT."[

This collaboration between Kudelski IoT and Microchip Technology demonstrates a shared commitment to enhancing IoT security. By providing a scalable, secure, and user-friendly platform for device provisioning and management, Kudelski IoT and Microchip Technology are setting a new standard in IoT security.

Kudelski IoT is exhibiting its secure provisioning solutions with the Microchip TrustMANAGER platform at its booth 5-176 at the Embedded World trade show (Nuremberg, Germany, 9-11 April 2024).
