With an estimated 20 billion connected devices by 2020, ensuring IoT device security across our networks is more important than ever. Device manufacturers are challenged with creating exceptional devices that deliver great user experiences, interoperate with other connected devices and don’t fall short on security.
That’s our connected reality today. We realize it’s a tall order.
However, we believe there’s a better and easier way to solve the IoT security problem from the outset.
That’s why we are excited to announce that we have been named the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Management Authority for the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) – a leading Internet of Things standards organization. We have also been chosen, along with Comodo CA, as the certificate authority to provide digital keys to OCF’s members.
As an OCF member you can acquire your authorized certificates here:
Kyrio and CableLabs have a longstanding relationship with the Open Connectivity Foundation in helping drive technical standards forward to solve the IoT device security problem. Kyrio is also one of seven authorized test labs for certification testing through the OCF.
“The addition of public key infrastructure is a critical step to support and maintain immutable, attestable trust in the OCF ecosystem,” said John Park, executive director, Open Connectivity Foundation. “By working with Kyrio as the PKI Management Authority, we are securing a massive deployment of devices and ensuring policies and practices are consistently adopted and enforced by our members.”
As a subsidiary of CableLabs, Kyrio leverages its long history in providing high-end security for DOCSIS® networked devices. Today we are experts in securing large, multi-vendor networks and ecosystems to provide trusted connectivity for your devices.
Kyrio is on a global mission to make ecosystems safer and more secure, one device at a time. To learn more about Kyrio’s work in IoT security, download our white paper. Also, be sure to visit the Open Connectivity Foundation to learn how you can start securing your products today.
