In partnership with TELUS and Thales, CIRA Labs has developed a Proof of Concept for an IoT Registry that offers secure device provisioning and management for IoT device manufacturers, mobile network operators and cloud providers. CIRA Labs brings its decades of experience running the .CA Registry to this project; while TELUS leverages its network for device-to-cloud communications. THALES e-SIMs embedded in IoT devices will ensure secure device-to-cloud communications.
Standards for device identification management are the key to keeping IoT devices secure. CIRA’s IoT Registry uses GSMA’s IoT SAFE standard, which was developed by the mobile industry to allow IoT device manufacturers and IoT service providers to leverage the IoT device’s SIM as a robust, scalable, and standardised hardware Root of Trust to protect IoT data communications.
