Cybertrust Japan Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of SoftBank Technology Corp., has selected the Rambus CryptoManager IoT Security Service for its Cybertrust Secure IoT Platform, a comprehensive IoT platform-as-a-service (PaaS). As a leading provider of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) solutions, Cybertrust will combine the services to provide an easy-to-use, multi-platform solution that covers all aspects of secure IoT device connectivity and lifecycle management.
According to Bret Sewell, senior vice president and general manager of the Rambus Security Division, the Rambus CryptoManager IoT Security Service secures the connectivity of IoT devices for both service providers and OEMs by supporting a variety of cloud solutions and client hardware architectures.
“The service leverages a range of cryptographic information including device IDs, keys and personalization information stored in SoCs at the time of manufacture. In addition, the service is pre-integrated with leading IoT chipset and PaaS providers to create an out-of-the-box secure connection to IoT endpoints,” he elaborated. “When a supported device is first powered up and connected to the Internet, it is automatically identified and authenticated by the solution. This simplifies implementation and improves time to market, while maintaining security requirements and mitigating DDoS attacks.”
As Sewell notes, the number of connected devices is increasing at an unprecedented rate, along with the risk of attack by cyber criminals and other malicious actors.
“The Rambus CryptoManager IoT Security Service helps minimize this risk by establishing an out-of-the-box secure connection and managing the security lifecycle of IoT devices with features such as firmware over-the-air (FOTA) updates,” said Sewell. “We are delighted to bring this approach and functionality to the Cybertrust Secure IoT Platform and look forward to advancing the security behind IoT devices with Cybertrust as a leading customer.”
Yasutoshi Magara, executive vice president, Cybertrust Japan, expressed similar sentiments.
“An end-to-end scalable security solution is quickly becoming a critical requirement for the IoT market,” Magara stated. “By integrating the Rambus CryptoManager IoT Security Service into our Secure IoT Platform, we can provide seamless security throughout the lifecycle of IoT devices and fulfill our company’s mission to provide a highly trusted and valued security solution to our global partners and customers.”
