Atsign Technology for IoT Security & Simplicity
No Network Attack Surface
No Static IPs or Open Ports
No Costly Security Budget
With Atsign Technology, every device is addressable through an atSign™, enabling end-to-end encrypted outbound device communication.
Atsign Technology: Overview
As IoT (Internet of Things) devices become directly connected over mobile networks, better security, especially for the data they generate, becomes critically important. IoT security thinkers, including NIST IoT are working hard to solve this, but we believe that it requires a very different approach.
- Cryptographic keys are created by the SIM/TPM/Secure Enclave and cannot be copied
- A major attack surface is eliminated by removing the need to directly access the device
- Data is encrypted all the way from the device to the app and is not lost if the device loses connectivity
- All network connectivity is outbound, vastly simplifying network configuration
- Device owners can control which subset of data is sent via an IoT tunnel to IoT hubs provided by AWS, GCP & Azure
Atsign technology strips things down to the protocol level, creating both zero trust and zero configuration environments – completely without passwords – eliminating all attack surfaces created by over-complexity, and simplifying the administration of devices in the process.
Eliminates the need for physical security devices
- No firewalls required
- No VPNs required
- No open ports, including 22
- Provides data routing hardware lockdown of encryption keys
Makes devices easier to add and administer
- Fewer components required
- No complex administrative tools needed
Allows for dynamic IP addresses
- No longer need to assign static IPs
- Greatly simplifies network administration
