Hologram Offers IoT Multi-Factor Authentication

By Ken Briodagh January 11, 2018

Hologram, a developer of software-defined cellular network for IoT, has announced a new multi-factor authentication solution for connected devices. By using the Hologram SDK with a Hologram SIM card, users will now be able to take advantage of the new security feature that is designed to protect IoT devices and communications from unauthorized access. Hologram’s multi-factor authentication helps developers and businesses verify IoT device identity, maintain privacy, and re-issue security keys to restore trust with devices following a security incident or breach.

Available via Hologram SIMs, multi-factor authentication enables key rotation, signing, and message authentication codes, such as Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP), to verify an IoT device's identity and to secure its communications.

“Hologram’s multi-factor authentication adds a much-needed layer of security to IoT devices,” said Ben Forgan, CEO, Hologram. “Right now, IoT security lags behind broader internet security standards resulting in massive botnets and frequent, large-scale hacks of consumer devices. Bringing multi-factor authentication to IoT solves many of the security and trust issues that plague connected products today.”

Common use cases for Hologram Multi-Factor Authentication include:

  • Securely communicate with IoT devices and IoT gateways
  • Create trust at the time of IoT device manufacturing
  • Re-establish trust after a security incident - which reduces the need to recall IoT devices

Hologram’s multi-factor authentication is available in private beta.

Multi-factor authentication and many other IoT security concerns will be the focus of important discussions during the upcoming IoT Security 4.0 Conference, taking place January 22 to 25 in Orlando, Florida.
