WISeKey enhances IoT security with a module specific to the Sigfox network

WISeKey International Holding, a Swiss cybersecurity and IoT company unveiled Wednesday its Security Solution for the Internet of Things (IoT), englobing multiple connectivity technologies including Sigfox.

WISeKey’s security solution, called VaultIC184, consists of a tamper proof silicon chip, based on a state-of-the-art secure microcontroller development, certified to Common Criteria EAL4+/5+ and FIPS 140-2 Level 3, a Sigfox specific Application Programming interface, based on the latest specifications, allowing device manufacturers an easy integration of the module, as well as a provisioning service, transferring the burden of device personalization from the device manufacturing line to WISeKey’s secure Personalization Center.

VaultIC184 is part of WISeKey’s global end-to-end scalable security framework WISeTrustIOT, a Public Key Infrastructure based overall response to mitigate ever increasing risks of cyber-attacks in IoT.

Moreover, the versatile security module, implementing Elliptic Curve Public Key cryptography PKI primitives as well as the specific Sigfox requirements, is a perfect solution for companies providing multi-network solutions requiring a state-of-the-art security coverage on all network types.

Designed for low cost, power and surface constrained devices, it proposes industry standard I2C connectivity, very low power consumption and a very little footprint.

“It is a great step towards integration of the needs of the various networks occupying the field of device connectivity, all requiring a high level of security, but all not necessarily with the same constraints in power consumption and available resources,” noted Benoit Makowka, Vice President of WISeKey’s IoT business line.

“Our flexible Personalization Center in the South of France and our central Public key based IoT framework in Geneva, once again demonstrate their unique ability to provide turnkey solutions to our customers, a very appreciated asset,” said Benoit Makowka. “With this Sigfox specific secure add-on, we are expanding our offer of securing the IoT to the very promising Low Power Wide Area Networks, of which Sigfox is a forerunner.”
