WISeKey, On Semiconductors and Tatwah Technology Co., Ltd announce the release of the world’s first premier Secure IoT Beacon device
ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), a leading supplier of semiconductor-based solutions, offering a comprehensive portfolio of energy efficient connectivity, sensing, power management, analog, logic, timing, discrete, and custom devices and Tatwah Technology Co., Ltd, a market leader in designing and manufacturing secure RFID tags and BLE Beacons with a strong experience in security, announced today the release of the world’s first Secure IoT Beacon device. The IoT Beacon device will be introduced at TRUSTECH 2019, an international event dedicated to Payments, Identification and Security, to be held from November 26-28 in Cannes, France.
The IoT Security Beacon embeds the Bluetooth® 5 RSL10 System-in-Package (RSL10 SIP) from ON Semiconductor. The all-in-one solution is fully-certified to worldwide regulatory standards and offers Bluetooth 5 features while maintaining the industry’s lowest power in standby and active modes. The RSL10 family is supported by a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK) featuring an Eclipse-based IDE, mobile applications and support for FreeRTOS, Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) and mesh networking and secured by a certified tamper resistant microcontrollers chips, such as the VaultIC405 and VaultIC407 to store securely the digital certificates and are used for the Secure IoT Beacon to process the cryptographic algorithms required to build the security protocol, while protecting all sensitive data and calculations a tamper resistant hardware, thus keeping hackers at bay.
Security enforced by a strong authentication process, digital identities and secure messaging. Enabling and enforcing other levels of security thanks to latest crypto algorithms, key management and access conditions. All technologies already field proven in IoT and NFC applications and today available on BLE Beacons.
VaultIC405 and 407 provides a Common Criteria EAL5+ platform and FIPS 140-2 level 3 security mechanisms for product authentication, secure asset tracking, sensor data integrity, applicable across the industry on predictive maintenance, healthcare asset tracking and patient management, close loop trusted digital payment protocols and other wearable applications.
The solution is integrated by Tatwah Technology Co., Ltd , a market leader in designing and manufacturing secure RFID tags and BLE Beacons with a strong experience in security.
At the heart of WISeKey’s solution, the WISeKey-OISTE Root of Trust serves as a common trust anchor which is recognized by operating systems (OS) and applications to ensure the authenticity, confidentiality and integrity of on-line transactions. WISeKey PKI Services allow to issue trusted digital identities for people, machines and objects adopting the best practices in secure identity management leveraging creating a plug and play environment where client’s ecosystems can connect securely and re-connect digital relations with ease. Allows the KYC process when required to onboard any stack holders that would operate with any integrated platform creating a trusted ecosystem.
Carlos Moreno, WISeKey’s VP Corporate Alliances noted, “We are proud to partner together with market leaders such as One Semiconductors and Tatwah Technology Co., Ltd combining cutting age technologies and expertise to support the markets requirements and aggregating this innovative Secured IoT Beacon to our portfolio.”
