Crypto Engine & Software Protect Massive IoT Networks

Mocana Corporation’s cyber protection solution for massive IoT, smart cities, and distributed intelligence networks is based on new device admission control capabilities for the company’s TrustPoint on-device security software solution. The added controls allow TrustPoint-enabled devices with limited memory and processing power, such as process sensors and IoT devices, to use certificate-based authentication and network filtering embedded into the device’s software to defend against network-based attacks. They are also used in conjunction with the comprehensive features of Mocana TrustPoint and TrustCenter to protect and manage the device security lifecycle.

TrustPoint includes a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic engine and software to make devices tamper-resistant while securing device storage, communications and applications. TrustCenter enables zero-touch, automated device enrollment and in-field provisioning of credentials and authenticated updates on headless devices.

According to Mocana, the advantage of its solution is that it authenticates or validates the identity of the device before it can communicate with the rest of the network. Unlike network access methods such as unauthenticated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) that provision network access before requiring authentication, Mocana’s solution provides a secure method to use certificate-based, mutual machine-to-machine authentication.
