| Trusted Objects’ new Secure Embedded Firmware brings enhanced security to network modems based on LoRa® technology
Trusted Objects Secure Embedded Firmware (“TOSF”) provides enhanced security for Internet of Things applications developed for LoRaWAN-based networks.
Trusted Objects provides enhanced security to the Internet of Things (IoT) thanks to its embedded firmware solution for LoRaWAN™ networks.
Specially customized to comply with LoRaWAN specifications, Trusted Objects’ firmware TOSF for LoRaWAN is built over a secure element to constitute a fully secure modem, integrating a main microcontroller, a Semtech radio and a secure element with TOSF firmware for LoRaWAN.
The secure LoRaWAN modem embeds the security functions specified in the LoRaWAN 1.0 protocol specification and provides an added layer of security by including features like secure key generation, storage and management as well as payload encryption. The secure customized firmware TOSF for LoRaWAN essentially replaces the original software stack to bring hardware-based security to IoT applications without any modifications needed.
Trusted Objects' TOSF for LoRaWAN firmware is already available and deployments are under way.
Sami Anbouba, CEO Trusted Objects, declares: "Thanks to its modular structure, we have been able to customize our firmware in a short lead-time. This not only offers an integrated secure solution for LoRaWAN networks, but also demonstrates the modularity of our firmware and its ease of adaptation to various specifications and application needs, without any compromise on security."
LoRa technology is a wireless Radio Frequency technology developed to create the low-power, wide-area networks (“LPWANs”) required for IoT applications. LoRaWAN is a specification distributed by the LoRa Alliance to ensure interoperability among the various network components. The LoRaWAN specification is intended to drive open standards for wireless battery operated IoT devices used in regional, national, or global LPWANs.
LoRa technology is currently implemented by leading mobile network operators, system integrators and application developers. Security is essential in the creation of IoT applications such as smart cities or smart grids. Trusted Objects’ secure embedded firmware for LoRa technology, TOSF for LoRaWAN, brings the necessary security features for such markets while minimizing application development costs.
