IoT Security Starts With PKI

With billions of devices connecting to the Internet, security is becoming more and more of a concern. The challenge is how to address IoT security and where to get started. The answer is Public key infrastructure (PKI), which is standards-based and proven to secure devices today. With the industry’s only high scale certificate service, GlobalSign is the Certificate Authority (CA) that can deliver certificates at cloud scale to meet the security needs of IoT innovators.

Getting Started with PKI


Identity and trust are integral to IoT security. By offering every “thing” a unique identity, PKI should be the foundation of any IoT security strategy. As an established technology, you can implement PKI into your IoT ecosystem today. From a development POC to millions of devices, GlobalSign’s cloud PKI service can deliver over 3,000 certificates per second to meet the elastic and scalable security needs of IoT innovators.
