Ensuring Data Security: The Root of Trust in IoT
In today's data-driven world, data security is a must. This is particularly true for IoT with its network of interconnected devices.
The Root of Trust (RoT) ensures the trustworthiness of this data. It's a foundational pillar of IoT security.
Think of it as the unique DNA of each device, embedding identity and cryptographic keys within the hardware.
In this regard, Thales leverages eSIM technology to ensure consistent protection levels and address the three crucial aspects of IoT security:
- mutual trust,
- data protection,
Thales' eSIM-based framework acts like a trusted mediator, facilitating a secure dialogue between the IoT device and the cloud.
Thales' approach sees the eSIM as more than just a remotely programmable chip. It becomes a secure shield and a toolbox for cryptographic tasks, ensuring credentials are stored safely and security services are correctly executed.
Thales and GSMA: A United Front for Cellular IoT Security
Thales fully implements GSMA initiatives like IoT SAFE, using SIM as a hardware Root of Trust for chip-to-cloud security of IoT products and services.
IoT SAFE utilizes the eSIM as a 'crypto-safe' to establish secure TLS sessions with application clouds/servers, simplifying the challenge of provisioning millions of IoT devices.
eSIM: A Safe Haven for Secure Applications
The 'Secured Applications for Mobile – Requirements Version 1.0' published by the GSMA exploits the capabilities of eSIM to host secure applets.
It establishes a secure domain within the eSIM for application access, paving the way for new use cases via secure and reliable hardware technology.
Navigating the EU Cybersecurity Act with GSMA's Security Accreditation Scheme
The EU Cybersecurity Act brings sweeping transformations to data security and the digital economy rules across the EU.
GSMA's Security Accreditation Scheme (SAS) serves as a reliable ship for mobile operators, helping them assess the security of their eSIM suppliers amidst these changes.
Thales: Setting Sights on the Future
Thales is investing heavily in security research, aiming to future-proof technology for businesses.
The company offers expert guidance, providing an efficient alternative to having a separate in-house security team.
In our dynamic digital world, knowing there are such careful navigators is good, right?
