Every IoT Endpoint Needs a Device Identity

And every device identity needs Device Identity Lifecycle Management

GlobalSign’s next-generation IoT Identity Platform delivers everything you need for full device identity lifecycle management from design and manufacturing, through deployment, management and sunsetting.

  • Cloud-based service
  • High throughput Certificate Authority
  • Dedicated revocation services
  • Integration options to connect to your ecosystem and end devices

Securing the Industrial IoT

If it connects to the Internet, we secure it.

IoT Security Starts with PKI

Public Key Infrastructure is the de facto credential for IoT and IIoT device identity

PKI delivers a trusted IoT experience backed by secure digital certificates issued from a trusted Certificate Authority (CA). Transport Layer Security or TLS is used to encrypt and secure communications to secure ecosystems. It’s the basis for our purpose-built IoT Identity Platform.

  • Scales up to handle high volume
  • Scales down to protect constrained devices
  • Easily integrates into device architectures
  • Accommodates a wide diversity of IoT and IIoT device types

Secure Device Identity for Connected Devices

With a unique strong device identity, things can authenticate when they come online, ensure secure communication between other devices, services and users, and prove their integrity. When implementing an IoT solution or manufacturing a connected device, identity and security should be built in from the start. Strong device identity supported by PKI can enable the fundamentals of IoT security:

  • Authentication

    When a device connects to the network, it must authenticate and establish trust between other devices, services and users. Once trust is established, devices, users and services can securely communicate and transact information.

  • Encryption

    Personal, sensitive and financial data must be kept private and secure – often times under regulatory compliance. A strong cryptographic encryption mechanism tied to a device identity ensures data is encrypted and authentic, and communications are secure.

  • Integrity

    The integrity of a device starts with proving it is what it says it is. With a unique strong device identity, PKI can ensure that the device and its software and firmware are legitimate.

Unprecedented scalability – Thousands of Certificates per second

The volume and throughput you need to futureproof your IoT expansion

Every industry is incorporating IoT – from industrial endpoints and production networks, to logistics gateways and smart cities initiatives. Everyone everywhere is connecting. The only way to meet the sweeping upsurge of secure connected devices is with an IoT Identity Platform that scales to meet individual and industry growth expectations.
