GlobalSign IoT Identity Platform

Full Device Identity Lifecycle Management for IoT Ecosystems

GlobalSign’s next-generation IoT Identity Platform is flexible and scalable to issue and manage billions of identities for IoT devices of all types. Using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) as the core identity mechanism, the IoT Identify Platform can serve the varied security use-cases of the IoT across all verticals, including manufacturing, agriculture, smart grid, payments, IoT gateways, healthcare and industrial ecosystems.

The IoT Identity Platform supports the full device identity lifecycle, from initial provisioning (both greenfield and brownfield deployments) to lifetime maintenance through to final sunsetting, decommissioning or transfer of ownership. Giving each device/endpoint a unique identity means they can authenticate when they come online and throughout their lifetime, prove their integrity, and securely communicate with other devices, services, and users.


GlobalSign can issue certificates at unprecedented speed and volume. There are three integration options and a combination of these can be used depending upon a user’s environment.

  • IoT CA Direct – Created for environments that only require a device identity issuance engine. In-house systems are able to communicate with GlobalSign’s services via a modern RESTful API, and handle device enrollment and lifecycle management.
  • IoT CA Connect - Ideal for environments using a third-party device and identity management solution which handles device enrollment and lifecycle management. In addition, it enables developers to issue certificates to devices directly from their own platforms.
