Crypto Quantique joins the IoT Security Foundation to help advance security for the Internet of Things
22 March 2021
LONDON, March 22nd, 2021 --- Crypto Quantique, a specialist in quantum-driven cybersecurity for the internet of things (IoT), has joined the IoT Security Foundation, a non-profit organization whose purpose is the help secure the Internet of Things.
The IoTSF’s goal is to ensure it’s safe for organizations to connect to the IoT. It has developed a robust compliance framework for secure IoT products and services and has worked with policymakers and industry to support the development of effective standards and to advise on legislative proposals. The IoTSF’s work has created a foundation for the development of IoT security practices and legislation, both in Europe and North America.
Shahram Mossayebi, Crypto Quantique’s CEO said, “Despite the industry hype, particularly around industrial IoT, we can have seen major companies reluctant to invest in, and reap the benefits of connected R&D, manufacturing, maintenance, and logistics. The perceived security risks have been too great. The IoTSF is has been instrumental in tackling this challenge by creating a compliance framework and offering education and advice throughout the supply chain. Crypto Quantique’s silicon hardware IP, QDID, and our QuarkLink universal IoT management platform make it fast and easy for companies to connect endpoint devices to server-based applications securely and at scale. At the same time, this architecture gives them end-to-end control of their IoT security without involving unnecessary third parties. Crypto Quantique’s objectives are closely aligned with those of the IoTSF and this alliance can only strengthen both of our organizations to the benefit of everyone involved in helping the IoT deliver its promised benefits.”
The IoTSF’s CEO, John Moor, added, “Crypto Quantique’s technologies bring new capabilities to IoT security that complement those of other IoTSF members and support our message to the industry of ‘Build Secure, Buy Secure, Be Secure’. The IoT opportunity is huge and the company’s quantum-driven silicon hardware IP and chip-to-cloud security platform will help democratize IoT security, making it accessible to many more companies and organizations.”
About Crypto Quantique
Crypto Quantique has created the world’s most secure end-to-end IoT security platform. At its heart is the world’s first quantum-driven semiconductor hardware IP, called QDID, that generates multiple, unique, unforgeable cryptographic keys for devices manufactured using standard CMOS processes. The keys do not need to be stored and can be used independently by multiple applications on demand. When combined with cryptographic APIs from the company’s universal IoT security platform, QuarkLink, the solution creates a secure bridge between silicon, device, software, and solutions provider.
The company, which is based in London, UK, was co-founded by Dr Shahram Mossayebi (CEO), an expert in cryptosystems, and Dr Patrick Camilleri (VP Research & Innovation), a semiconductor designer with significant experience in complex parallel computer systems.
IoTSF is a non-profit corporate and professional membership association. The mission of IoTSF is to help secure the Internet of Things, in order to aid its adoption and maximize its benefits. To do this IoTSF will promote knowledge and clear best practice in appropriate security to those who specify, make and use IoT products and systems. IoTSF promotes the security values of a security-first approach, fitness for purpose and resilience through operating life. The security values are targeted at key stages of the IoT eco-system – those that build, buy and use products and services: Build Secure. Buy Secure. Be Secure. IoTSF was formed as a response to existing and emerging threats in the Internet of Things applications.
IoTSF is an international, collaborative and vendor-neutral members’ initiative, driven by the IoT eco-system and inclusive of all parties including technology providers and service beneficiaries.
