IoT security  challenges

1

Need to digitally sign hundreds of millions of IoT devices per year?

If you're a large manufacturer, you might need to issue millions, billions, and sometimes trillions of digital signatures every year to IoT devices in geographically distant manufacturing sites. Plus, to meet compliance requirements, your devices must be signed by cryptographic modules validated by standards like FIPS 140-2 Level 3.

  • Issue digital certificates
  • Achieve unlimited nth-degree scalability
  • Use fully validated cryptographic modules

2

Need high-availability infrastructure with zero implementation downtime?

When you have to sign IoT devices in batches of, say, 10,000, reliability and uptime are what you need. Your technology solution should be a 24/7/365 high-availability configuration.
3

Need scalability to accommodate growth?

Manufacturers need both vertical and horizontal scalability to accommodate future growth without impacting production capabilities. To accomplish this, they need to work with a trusted vendor with a proven track record of delivering complex, global projects on time and under budget.

KMES Series 3

Futurex’s key management server, the KMES Series 3, is a secure interface with which to manage key lifecycles. It supports the creation, issuance, storage, retrieval, and destruction of public and private keys, and is the starting point for creating an industry-wide key management security solution.

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)

IoT devices have grown at a staggering pace. The number of devices online grew from 25 billion in 2016 to over 75 billion in 2018. If these devices are improperly managed, they can be exposed to security breaches and huge financial risks.

So, how can you effectively manage all those devices?

Answer: use Futurex’s key management services to quickly and easily establish a PKI. The Futurex IoT security solution provides a central location for assigning and managing every part of the key lifecycle for your devices connected to the network. Futurex offers a comprehensive portfolio of retrieval, protection, and access solutions. Use them to establish a secure identity for each part of your IoT system.

Secure communication

IoT networks have spread to envelop the globe. IoT connected devices have multiplied exponentially, and with them, new security risks have emerged. Embedded devices, energy grids, smart cities, connected cars, cellular networks, IP cameras, medical devices, and any connected device capable of wireless communication must be secured to prevent cyber attacks. The two main methods of securing IoT environments from cyber attacks are authentication and data encryption.

Using Futurex IoT security solutions, manufacturers can establish a public key infrastructure (PKI), which will create a mutually authenticated connection for endpoint security. They can then encrypt all sensitive data flowing between connected devices, securing industrial operations and enforcing security policies across their IoT network. With Futurex’s Internet of Things manufacturer-class solution suite, industrial organizations can maintain a secure critical infrastructure for connected devices, block malware, and protect their business operations against ransomware attacks, software failures, cyber attacks, and other threats.

Securing devices with digital certificates

IoT device manufacturers need to protect their products with digital certificates and manage those devices throughout their lifetime.

The manufacturing industry is full of device manufacturers searching for an effective way to deal with unmanaged devices throughout their lifecycles.

Futurex helps manufacturers of IoT devices establish a public key infrastructure (PKI) to digitally sign devices and distribute those signed certificates to those IoT devices. All with our FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated key management servers.

Key Lifecycle Management

From ATMs to smart cars, IoT devices need to be secured using strong encryption, authentication, and continuous monitoring. Futurex’s suite of manufacturer-class products provides industrial IoT manufacturers with the resources they need to mitigate IoT security risks and secure their industrial control systems: initial loading of cryptographic keys and certificates during manufacturing, remotely loading keys into IoT devices already deployed in the field, and securely disposing of or revoking keys and certificates at end of life.

This lifecycle key management functionality ensures IoT manufacturers maintain total security of their IoT networks during every aspect of their business dealings, from beginning to end.

Object Signing

Futurex’s manufacturer solution suite is designed to integrate into your critical systems with ease, supplying one complete package for handling all the processes necessary to establish a secure, authenticated network of IoT devices. The scalability of Futurex’s devices makes them ideal for large-scale IoT device manufacturing ventures, with the capability to perform bulk operations for keys and certificates.

Signing individual objects such as code or documents, securing IoT devices, or encrypting traffic between endpoints — whatever your digital security needs are, the versatility of Futurex’s manufacturer-class security tools will satisfy any functional requirements for cryptographic security operations.

With support for different key distribution protocols, you won’t have to worry about reconfiguring IoT devices to push or pull keys; Futurex digital security services for IoT devices can handle it all.
