Sigfox is a leading provider of dedicated connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Security is essential in the creation of IoT applications as standard modems relying only on simple software security solution are often the target of hackers.
Trusted Objects enables significantly better security on the Sigfox modems with the TO136 Secure Element solution especially adapted for the Sigfox LPWAN platform.
Trusted Objects’ secure firmware embedded in the TO136 Secure Element used as a companion chip to the modem microcontroller, handles the following:
Securely stores the device ID, the Network Authentication Key (NAK), the encryption Key (Ke)
Performs a strong authentication of a device on the Sigfox network
Encrypts the payload on the network
