Securing the IoT
Cyber security is one of the biggest challenges and barriers to the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) deployments and associated business models across many market verticals like industrial, smart cities, medical, automotive, connected homes, etc.
Micron is leveraging its position as a leader in the manufacturing of flash memory, and a leader in the embedded markets, to create a whole new paradigm to address these security challenges. Micron developed the Authenta™ Security-as-a-Service platform as a cost effective, widely scalable and business appropriate way to employ security across a diverse set of systems with fragmented supply-chains and ecosystems. Authenta platform is a combination of the Authenta enabled flash, which has integration of secure element function in the flash with provisioned identities, and a Authenta Key Management Service. This provides a simple activation and ownership change service for a wide-range of IoT security services and device management services. The combination of these two capabilities, along with the commitment of a market leader to drive the solution to the market, creates a very attractive proposition for our customers in the securing of their products in an everything-connected world.
