u-blox launches IoT Security-as-a-Service offering

By on 14 October, 2020

Internet of Things security service available on u-blox’s SARA-R4 and SARA-R5 series of LTE-M cellular IoT modules.

The Switzerland-based positioning and wireless communications firm says that its new security service simplifies protection of data during transmission of IoT device to the cloud, and is specifically optimised for low power wide area (LPWA) deployments.

Giovanni Solito, senior product manager, product centre services at u-blox said that the service improves power consumption and extends the battery life by keeping the number of handshakes to a minimum, using a unique symmetric key management system (KMS).

“We implemented a true end-to-end concept that protects data from the device to the end user without making it visible to intermediate nodes or platforms, or to service providers. The modules’ symmetric KMS offers engineers a streamlined and scalable alternative to conventional public key infrastructure or pre-shared key arrangements,” he said.

“And with straightforward onboarding to all the popular cloud IoT platforms, efforts are not taken up by security concerns and operational complexities, but can be focused on speeding up time to market and growing business.”

The company said that the relevant use cases for their security services include connected health/eHealth, industrial monitoring, building and home automation, smart metering and telematics.
