The solution brings hardware-based security to the LoRa ecosystem, combining the MCU- and radio-agnostic ATECC608A-MAHTN-T CryptoAuthentication device with The Things Industries’ managed join servers and Microchip’s secure provisioning service. The joint solution significantly simplifies provisioning LoRaWAN devices and addresses the inherent logistical challenges that come with managing LoRaWAN authentication keys from inception and throughout the life of a device. Traditionally, network and application server keys are unprotected in the edge node, and unmonitored, as LoRaWAN devices pass through various supply chain steps and are installed in the field. The Common Criteria Joint Interpretation Library (JIL) “high”-rated ATECC608A comes pre-configured with secure key storage, keeping a device’s LoRaWAN secret keys isolated from the system so that sensitive keys are never exposed throughout the supply chain nor when the device is deployed. … [Read more...] about Industry’s first end-to-end LoRa® security solution

As the LoRa (Long Range) technology ecosystem accelerates, security remains an area for improvement in the market due to vulnerabilities that leave the network and application server keys accessible in the memory of modules and microcontrollers (MCUs) paired with a LoRaWAN stack. Microchip and The Things Industries' end-to-end LoRa security solution can address serious security issues in connected devices If keys are accessed in a LoRaWAN device, a hacker can impersonate it and authorise fraudulent transactions, which can result in a scalable attack with substantial losses in service revenue, recovery costs, and brand equity. Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP), in partnership with The Things Industries, today announced the industry’s first end-to-end security solution that adds secure, trusted, and managed authentication to LoRaWAN devices at a global scale. The solution brings hardware-based security to the LoRa ecosystem, combining the MCU- and radio-agnostic … [Read more...] about Industry first end to end LoRa solution offers secure key provisioning

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc ordered the implementation of online public services to benefit people and firms, Source: Government Office At Estonia’s e-Estonia showroom based in the capital city of Tallinn’s own ‘Silicon Valley’, IT expert Onnik Indrek showed off an electronic identity card, which, he said, can help him do almost everything in life. According to him, Estonia, known as one of the most advanced “e-states” of the world, is home to the most highly developed national ID card system in the world. Much more than simply a legal picture ID, this mandatory national card serves as a digital access card for every secure e-service in Estonia. The chip on the card carries embedded files using RSA 2048-bit public key encryption, which enable it to be used as definitive proof of identity in an electronic environment. The electronic ID card was introduced in 2002, and by 2015, more than 94 per cent of Estonian residents were carrying one. The … [Read more...] about Vietnam’s e government plan needs a big push
