Crypto Quantique named as a finalist for TechWorks’ ‘IoT Security Foundation Champion Award’ 2021

From an IoTSF membership of over 100, Crypto Quantique is one of only four finalists for this top award.

LONDON, November 3rd, 2021 — Crypto Quantique, a specialist in quantum-driven cyber security for the internet of things (IoT), has been selected as a finalist for the TechWorks IoT Security Foundation (IoTSF) Champion Award. From an IoTSF membership of over 100, Crypto Quantique is one of only four finalists for this top award.

The IoTSF Champion Award is designed to highlight organisations that help protect the connected ecosystem and to celebrate its exemplars as part of the IoTSF’s mission to ‘make it safe to connect.’ It will be presented at the TechWorks Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony held in the Leonardo Royal Hotel, London St Pancras, on 9th December 2021.

Crypto Quantique, which has developed a scalable, end-to-end IoT security architecture called Q:Architecture, has had an exceptional year. Highlights include  strategic ecosystem partnerships with Renesas, EPS Global, Macronix, and Silex Insight, all leaders in their fields, particularly concerning IoT security.

The silicon IP part of Q:Architecture – QDID – which generates unique, immutable, and unforgeable identities and cryptographic keys inside silicon chips, has achieved PSA Certified Level 2 Ready certification. It has also been independently verified against all known IoT attack mechanisms, enabling semiconductor makers to achieve EAL4+ security for their devices more easily when adopting this technology.

Furthermore, Crypto Quantique was named as the only security ‘Startup Worth Watching’ in the EETimes’ Silicon 100 report earlier this year.

Shahram Mossayebi, the company’s CEO, said, “Being selected as a finalist for this award is an important recognition of the enormous efforts of our team this year. Our progress towards democratising IoT security by simplifying its implementation at scale has been remarkable. Nearly every semiconductor company that really understands security is engaging with us and we are now collaborating with major OEMs and telecoms operators to help them achieve secure, scalable chip-to-cloud connectivity at low cost. I want to thank TechWorks and the IoTSF for recognising the value of this work in helping them achieve their IoT security goals.”

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.
