At the event, SEALSQ’s team has been demonstrating to Alliance members such as Panasonic and Samsung how its comprehensive suite of security products and services can enable smart devices manufacturers to conveniently and cost-effectively achieve compliance with the latest standards as unveiled by the CSA’s Product Security Working Group (PSWG).

As consumer IoT devices become more widely adopted, there is a greater focus on security in response to an uptick in breaches and malicious device takeovers. The CSA Product Security Working Group seeks to address this by merging criteria from the top three existing IoT Cybersecurity standards in the United States, Singapore, and Europe into one specification and certification initiative.

Approximately 200 Alliance Member companies, including SEALSQ, Amazon, Arm, Comcast, Google, Schneider Electric, and Signify (Philips Hue and WiZ), have collaborated to pool together related technologies, expertise, and innovations. This collaboration has enabled the development of the IoT Device Security Specification 1.0, along with its accompanying certification program and Product Security Verified Mark, catering to the diverse needs of stakeholders such as consumers, device manufacturers, and regulators.
According to the Alliance, “The release of the IoT Device Security Specification 1.0, with the accompanying certification program, and Product Security Verified Mark aims to establish a unified IoT cybersecurity standard and certification program to help manufacturers comply with multiple international regulations and standards more easily.”

The IoT Device Security Specification 1.0 within the Product Security framework encompasses numerous precise provisions for device security. Manufacturers of IoT devices are required to validate compliance with these provisions, providing rationales and evidence to an Authorized Test Laboratory proficient in security evaluation and certifying products according to this specification.

SEALSQ’s all-in-one solution enables compliance with all key aspects of the program specified requirements including:

  • Unique identity for each IoT Device.
  • No hardcoded default passwords.
  • Secure storage of sensitive data on the Device.
  • Secure communications of security-relevant information.
  • Secure software updates throughout the support period.
  • Secure development process, including vulnerability management.
  • Public documentation regarding security, including the support period.

Additionally, smart home device manufacturers partnering with SEALSQ will enjoy the following benefits:

  • Accelerated time-to-market for achieving Matter compliance.
  • Cost savings by eliminating the need for technology investment, maintenance, staffing, and ongoing compliance expenses.
  • Flexible deployment options, offering on-premises, hosted, or batch issuance solutions.
  • Simplified management of device attestation certificates and product attestation intermediates via the SEALSQ INeS CMS Platform for IoT.
  • Enhanced efficiency through a scalable platform capable of securely signing device updates.

Emphasizing the significance of this collaboration, Bernard Vian, General Manager of WISeKey Semiconductors, noted, “The unique combination of SEALSQ’s PKI and provisioning services with the Matter Root-of-Trust PAA will empower our clients to efficiently achieve the Product Security Verified Mark, saving both time and money.”

The Product Security Verified Mark indicates that a product complies with the security requirements outlined in the specification, aiming to instill confidence in consumers. When prominently displayed on certified product packaging, store signage, and online platforms, this Verified Mark serves as a symbol of secure IoT devices. Additionally, the inclusion of a printed URL, hyperlink, QR code, or a combination thereof on the Product Security Verified Mark provides consumers with access to further information regarding the device’s security features.

About SEALSQ:
SEALSQ focuses on selling integrated solutions based on Semiconductors, PKI and Provisioning services, while developing Post-Quantum technology hardware and software products. Our solutions can be used in a variety of applications, from Multi-Factor Authentication tokens, Smart Energy, Smart Home Appliances, and IT Network Infrastructure, to Automotive, Industrial Automation and Control Systems.

Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) refers to cryptographic methods that are secure against an attack by a quantum computer. As quantum computers become more powerful, they may be able to break many of the cryptographic methods that are currently used to protect sensitive information, such as RSA and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). PQC aims to develop new cryptographic methods that are secure against quantum attacks.
