Networked devices that connect to the cloud and each other are inherently susceptible to cyberattack. To ensure built-in defenses are robust as possible, these systems must be protected from the time of manufacture until their decommissioning. This includes the unique identities that allow IoT devices to authenticate over PKI infrastructure.
Attackers are gearing up and quantum computers are coming; we just don’t know when. Hence, it’s time to up your game in securing your systems.
IoT devices are becoming part of our daily lives, which, if you think about it, makes their ability to easily and securely connect to the cloud critical future economies. We’d better put something in place to manage those cloud connections then, shouldn’t we?
Winners have been chosen based on a 15-point rubric that considers solutions’ Design Excellence (5 points), Relative Performance (5 points), and Market Impact/Disruption (5 points).
We’ve known for a long time that quantum computers are under development. Such computers may solve fundamental problems in the simulation of chemical reactions at the atomic and molecular levels, targeted design of medications, or innovative materials. But we’ve also known for a long time that such computers have the potential to crack many of the security techniques, especially of conventional cryptography, that are in use today.
OPTIGA™ TPM SLB 9672 is a standardized, out-of-the-box TPM that provides a solid foundation for securely establishing the identity and software status of PCs, servers, and connected devices, and for protecting the integrity and confidentiality of data at rest and in transit.
