Rambus is teaming up with STMicroelectronics to showcase its recently announced IoT Device Management service as part of its CryptoManager™ platform. The two companies are working together to simplify provisioning and device management for IoT OEMs and service providers.
Designed for the Internet of Things (IoT), the demo showcases an STM32 microcontroller (MCU) connected to Rambus IoT Device Management. This service provides a seamless device-to-cloud connectivity solution, which provides secure connectivity and life cycle management. As well, the Rambus IoT Device Management helps mitigate against a range of attacks, including Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS).
This first public showing of this joint demonstration is in the Rambus booth (#506) at IoT World 2017 in Santa Clara, CA, May 16-18, 2017. Rambus Sr. Director of Security Products Asaf Ashkenazi will also be presenting “Enabling Cost Effective Security for the IoT Revolution” on May 18 at 1:40 pm PT during this show.
Rambus CryptoManager IoT Device Management
Rambus CryptoManager IoT Device Management is a turnkey device-to-cloud solution that provides seamless end-to-end secure connectivity throughout all stages of the device life-cycle. Specific features include device identification and mutual authentication, disaster recovery and key management, device verification, and decommissioning and re-assignment of keys to better manage devices and mitigate various attacks.
The CryptoManager IoT Device Management solution comprises multiple software modules that are pre-integrated with the device and the selected cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) via their relevant SDKs. When a device is powered up and connected to the internet, it automatically connects to the IoT Device Management service, seamlessly authenticates and provisions relevant security credentials.
It should be noted that the security layer is transparent to the service provider and does not require any changes to the service. Moreover, since CryptoManager IoT Device Management Client SDK is pre-integrated with the chipset provider’s SDK and a service provider’s selected cloud PaaS, OEMs are not required to develop additional software. Similarly, service providers are freed from spending resources and time on cloud integration. In select chipset products, IoT Device Management utilizes Rambus CryptoManager hardware IP and pre-provisioned keys, which are already integrated in billions of chipsets, helping to improve time to market. Rambus CryptoManager IoT Device Management is offered to customers on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) subscription basis.
