Protecting the IoT with Invisible Keys
The number of IoT cyberattacks has more than doubled over the past year and this explosive growth shows no sign of stopping. That is why the typically low-cost devices that populate the IoT are in desperate need of stronger security.
The foundations of security for IoT devices are the cryptographic keys that protect their data, communications, and provide them with a unique and trusted identity. These keys offer protection to the devices, but how can you protect these keys and provision them onto your devices in a cost-effective and scalable way? What technology solution offers the best results for this?
In this white paper you will learn about:
- Traditional methods of provisioning and protecting keys on IoT devices
- A new method, based on a technology called Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs), that offers a flexible and scalable solution at a high level of security and with low cost
- How PUF technology compares to traditional methods for protecting the most important security assets of the IoT: the cryptographic keys
