Keyfactor Announces IoT Security Integrations Supporting Crypto-Agility at Scale
Keyfactor today announced at the RSA Conference its partnership and technology integration with SSL/TLS crypto-library provider wolfSSL. The integration provides greater security control to IoT (Internet of Things) device manufacturers at design and through a product's lifetime. 

Recent research analyzed IoT device vulnerabilities, emphasizing inherent design constraints and limited entropy as critical factors contributing to IoT device security risks. Solid yet flexible cryptographic libraries are critical in ensuring embedded and connected IoT devices can scale with evolving security requirements and best practices.

"Establishing critical trust at design and over time is complex for device manufacturers juggling multiple mass-production product lines," said Mark Thompson, vice president of product at Keyfactor. "Assigning a unique identity to every device hardens its overall security and ability to securely install firmware and software updates. But creating and maintaining unique identities is a challenge for manufacturers making millions of devices. Combining full-featured, easy-to-use cryptographic libraries with a solid Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) platform makes IoT security at scale manageable and achievable."

The integration combines wolfSSL crypto libraries with Keyfactor PKI-as-a-Service and certificate lifecycle management to secure next gen connected IoT devices. Keyfactor Control enables device designers and manufacturers to leverage technology and PKI to continuously replace, manage and update cryptography on IoT devices, while wolfSSL SSL/TLS libraries support resource constrained IoT systems across industrial control systems, medical devices and connected vehicles.

"We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Keyfactor and our joint customers," said Todd Ouska, chief technical officer at wolfSSL. "It makes a world of good sense that we work with Keyfactor to support market and technology needs. WolfSSL's TLS and cryptography, which leads the FIPS market for government consumers, the automotive market for MISRA users and DO-178 for avionics markets, is also the best tested and most performant product for anyone going into deployment at scale. Couple that with Keyfactor, and you get the best possible security solution."
