Crypto Quantique announces first post-quantum computing IoT security platform compliant with new NIST standards
Crypto Quaantique announces the first post-quantum IoT security computing platform compliant with new NIST standards
The upgraded platform is believed to be the first to use post-quantum algorithms recently announced for standardization by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), specifically the selected Key Encapsulation Mechanism (KEM), CRYSTALS – Cyber.
As part of the recent announcement of post-quantum standards, NIST focused on the use of the designs in embedded devices, including benchmarks of all ARM-Cortex M4 designs. , which shows that post-quantum IoT security is a realistic goal. Elsewhere, NIST has standardized many signature schemes, including lattice and hash signatures, and proposed algorithms of future interest that may be standardized later. Crypto Quatique’s KEM-TLS protocol is designed to be flexible and easily adapt to these changing standards.
QuarkLink is a comprehensive platform for connecting IoT devices with built-in root-of-trust to server applications. Its features include device provisioning, automatic secure application onboarding, and lifetime security management. Through a simple interface, users can achieve firmware encryption, signing and securing over-the-air updates, certificate and key changes, and device recovery. A few keystrokes start an automated process to connect thousands of devices in minutes to a server platform or to multiple platforms simultaneously. Currently supported cloud services include AWS, Microsoft and Mosquito.
