Trusted Objects, based in France, provides end-to-end security solutions for the Internet of Things. Trusted Objects has developed solutions based on tamper-resistant hardware to ensure the IoT includes the appropriate security functions. Trusted Objects solutions include the hardware, a secure firmware and personalisation under the control of the issuer.
