Now that connected devices are beginning to outnumber the world’s population, the need for secure interoperability within the IoT is at an all-time high. With such large amounts of data flowing across the internet and from device to device, sensitive information can land in the wrong hands. The first step for IoT security requires a robust means to authenticate and authorize devices onto the cloud.
For that purpose, organizations must build the “chain of trust” needed to authenticate, certify and authorize devices onto cloud networks. This chain of trust must provide mutual authentication between devices, maintain the integrity and confidentiality of collected data, ensure the legitimacy of software downloaded on devices and preserve the privacy of any sensitive data to stay in line with security regulations.
