Trusted Objects is aiming to provide enhanced security to the Internet of Things (IoT) through its embedded firmware solution for LoRaWAN™ networks.
Customised to comply with LoRaWAN specifications, Trusted Objects’ firmware TOSF for LoRaWAN is built over a secure element to constitute a fully secure modem, integrating a main microcontroller, a Semtech radio and a secure element with TOSF firmware for LoRaWAN.
The secure LoRaWAN modem embeds the security functions specified in the LoRaWAN 1.0 protocol specification and is designed to provide an added layer of security by including features like secure key generation, storage and management as well as payload encryption. The secure customised firmware TOSF for LoRaWAN essentially replaces the original software stack to bring hardware-based security to IoT applications without any modifications needed.
Trusted Objects’ TOSF for LoRaWAN firmware is already available and deployments are under way.
Sami Anbouba, CEO Trusted Objects, declared: “Thanks to its modular structure, we have been able to customise our firmware in a short lead-time. This not only offers an integrated secure solution for LoRaWAN networks, but also demonstrates the modularity of our firmware and its ease of adaptation to various specifications and application needs, without any compromise on security.”
LoRa technology is a wireless Radio Frequency technology developed to create the low-power, wide-area networks (LPWANs) required for IoT applications. LoRaWAN is a specification distributed by the LoRa Alliance to ensure interoperability among the various network components. The LoRaWAN specification is intended to drive open standards for wireless battery-operated IoT devices used in regional, national, or global LPWANs.
LoRa technology is currently implemented by leading mobile network operators, system integrators and application developers. Security is essential in the creation of IoT applications such as smart cities or smart grids. Trusted Objects’ secure embedded firmware for LoRa technology, TOSF for LoRaWAN, brings the necessary security features for such markets while minimising application development costs.
Trusted Objects is a leading independent player in the Secure IoT market, providing innovative embedded firmware and services to dramatically enhance the security of connected devices. The Trusted Objects Secure Embedded Firmware (TOSF) range can be easily customised to address a wide range of different security requirements generated by the high fragmentation of the IoT market.
Trusted Objects also delivers a set of services including security assessment, personalisation engine, keys and certificates management, fast prototyping to accelerate the deployment of comprehensive solutions that meet the highest security requirements.
