Today, CableLabs subsidiary Kyrio announced their partnership with Microchip Technology, Inc. to develop strong embedded IoT device security. With the goal of solving the future challenges of IoT device security today, the partnership will allow digital certificates to be embedded in IoT devices in a way that integrates well with hardware manufacturing process flows. This strategy will make it easy for IoT device manufacturers to enable enterprise-grade security without needing to be security experts.
According to Microchip senior strategic marketing manager of Microchip’s Secure Products Group, Nicolas Schieli:
“Microchip is proud to welcome Kyrio as the first Certificate Authority company into our Design Partner Program. Our customers will benefit from the simplified IoT security life cycle that Kyrio provides by managing the certificates from production to deployment.”
