IoT security for low-end, low power IoT endpoint devices
with no need for hardware redesign or change in infrastructure,
StarDust™, our IoT security solution, extends security beyond gateways, which is where most "end-to-end" security solutions stop today, to include the tiny IoT endpoints and sensors, which have little or no security today.
To secure these small, low-compute and low power endpoints, our software solution only takes a tiny footprint on the MPU/MCU (less than a KB!) and minimum power from the battery (a few nano amps). We use the latest and most efficient cryptography designed for highly constrained environments (or you can roll your own) alongside our patented, difficult-to-hack security protocol. Unlike other endpoint security solutions, we do not require any hardware redesign or new security chip, reducing cost and design impact.
Our solution is highly scalable, flexible with users-changeable settings, and easy to implement. StarDust™ is agnostic to the IoT platforms and processors, wireless access technologies (e.g. BLE, ZigBee, WiFi, LoRa, Cellular IoT, etc.) and/or existing IP network or cloud infrastructure. It is suitable not only to new IoT deployments but also to retrofit security into existing systems, such as industrial ones such as ICS, PLC, RTU, SCADA, etc. running non-IP protocols such as MQTT, Hart, Modbus, etc.
We bring to market the only IoT security solution designed from the ground up to extend security to low complexity IoT endpoints without a need for hardware redesign or change in infrastructure.
Gartner Research estimates that there are about 20.4 billion IoT-connected devices in use by end of 2020. The majority of these IoT devices are very affordable (and thus low complexity with low compute power) IoT endpoints and sensors, battery powered and connected using unlicensed, easy to hack, short-range wireless technologies (BLE, ZigBee, Wi-Fi, etc.) to gateways, themselves connected to the LPWAN and/or Cloud networks.
We secure these endpoints by authenticating each one of them and encrypting the data they capture, data which is becoming more and more critical to every aspects of our daily lives in our increasingly more AI-driven digital world.
Our patented solution covers all aspects of endpoint initialization, registration, authentication and activation, with a unique array of keys for each endpoint and keys modified at each transmission.
Our team is composed of technology experts passionate in developing and bringing to market innovative solutions.Our inventors are typical serial entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley: they co-founded a number of startups, including one that got acquired by Cisco. One of them was named Cisco Fellow, the highest ranking engineering position there. We are all seasoned professionals with extensive backgrounds in security, IoT, cellular and fixed wireless, cloud networking and protocol design.
