Mocana Corporation (Mocana), a leading provider of mission-critical IoT security solutions for industrial control systems and the Internet of Things, today announced full integration of Mocana TrustCenter™ with the Intel Secure Device Onboard (Intel SDO) service. This new collaboration will reduce the time it takes to automate the provisioning of credentials and security configurations the device requires before being allowed on corporate networks. This integration dramatically reduces costly customer pre-loading of security configurations in the supply chain and delivers a just in time model where the device can be dynamically provisioned without human intervention.
Mocana TrustCenter ensures supply chain integrity, offering full management of cybersecurity across the entire IoT device security lifecycle – embedded systems and software development, manufacturing, device enrollment, and secure firmware updates. Ensuring the safety, security, and reliability of control systems is critical, especially with the continuing attacks on mission-critical systems used by aerospace, defense, industrial manufacturing, transportation, medical, and automotive companies.
“At Mocana, our goal is to build the Internet of Trusted things. We know that securing IoT devices is very complex: it’s hard to update the firmware, private keys are often insecure, and many are built on vulnerable, open source code. At the end of the day, if you cannot trust the device, you cannot trust the data,” said William Diotte, CEO of Mocana. “That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our automated device enrollment process that combines Mocana TrustCenter™ with Intel SDO, reducing the onboarding and digital certificate provisioning time from 20 minutes to mere seconds.”
“Intel believes that silicon plays a foundational role for securing identity and trust in IoT devices when first deployed. Our Intel SDO service extends trust in the device to TrustCenter which can provision full operational lifecycle security to the device at point of install. This automated process removes the hardware security configuration burden from the supply chain and delivers new flexibility for the customer to push the latest security updates to the device,” said Lorie Wigle, VP Product Management, Platform Security Division, Intel.
