IoT SAFE Back to Exhibitor Page
Secure communications of connected devices thanks to the eSIM.
The security of connected devices is an important concern for businesses and their customers because the level of security still tends to be very low. The security of an entire IT system can be compromised when a connected device is hacked to extract the encryption keys.
IoT SAFE (SIM Applet For Secure End-2-End Communication) is a new standard specified by the GSMA and TCA (Trusted Connectivity Alliance) in December 2019 with active participation from Orange.
IoT SAFE is an innovative solution that uses the eSIM as a key store to hold cryptographic keys and services. It is designed to resist physical attacks. What’s more, it can be remotely controlled by the operator to provision, renew or revoke identification credentials.
To secure our customers’ connected devices, Orange is developing an entire IoT SAFE ecosystem:
SIM makers (Thales), operating systems (Kigen – An ARM Company- , Arduino), chip manufacturers (Sequans) and Cloud providers (Orange Live Objects).
Orange and Thales will demonstrate IoT SAFE on an Orange Live Booster module, equipped with a SIM card and cellular connectivity, and using a secure connection to the Orange Cloud (Orange Live Objects). For Orange, deploying IoT SAFE via the future SAM (Secure Applications for Mobile) GSMA standard will be a key success factor in the security and interoperability of tomorrow’s world.
