Security Experts Secure Connected Health Market

Thales, a self-described leader in information systems and cybersecurity, has teamed up with Device Authority, also a self-lauded leader in identity and access management (IAM) for the internet of things (IoT), have jointly developed a solution to ensure the authentication of IoT devices and the confidentiality and integrity of the data they rely on. The goal is to provide both healthcare professionals and their patients the confidence to try out new technologies.


The partner’s system integrates Device Authority's KeyScaler platform with the Thales nShield Connect hardware security module (HSM). This promises high-assurance device authentication at IoT scale, managed end-to-end encryption to meet compliance requirements and certificate provisioning for healthcare and other connected devices. The solution will authenticate any new device hardware and establish a strong root of trust and identity on the network.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.


The solution then provides additional security operations, such as issuing a security token that the device can use to validate itself to other IoT platforms, or provide a unique device key and certificate. The KeyScaler platform delivers automation for critical credential management processes, in addition to tokenized access control and policy-based encryption for data, in transit and at rest. The solution is currently being piloted with medical devices.
