Internet of Things Device Security — Examining PKI Certificate Management and Device Provisioning Options

By: Robyn WesterveltResearch Director, Security & Trust, Abhi Dugar


This IDC Market Perspective provides information about IoT-specific platforms for public key infrastructure and management of digital certificates. These platforms enable organizations to distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates and manage public key encryption.

"Manufacturers should consider the risk profile of IoT devices under development and apply security accordingly. History has demonstrated that adding security during a later stage or bolting on security following deployment increases complexity and can severely impact cost and performance. Device identity is an essential element of any embedded device, and some of the PKI offerings for IoT offer extensibility required to adapt to technology shifts and highly flexible to integrate into complex production environments," said Robert Westervelt, research director, IDC's Security Products group.
