Partners Senet and G+D Mobile Security to Bolster LoRaWAN Security

By Ken Briodagh October 12, 2017

According to a recent announcement, G+D Mobile Security and Senet plan to cooperate to strengthen security of LoRaWAN connectivity across the whole IoT ecosystem. The collaboration between the two companies reportedly is designed to provide a full integration of G+D Mobile Security’s Key Management System (KMS) with Senet’s global LoRa-based networks.

This will result in a flexible and secure cloud-based provisioning solution which can provide the necessary level of security required for IoT use cases and global IoT deployments. G+D Mobile Security’s KMS solution provides security with scaling from initial implementations through mass rollouts based on hardware protection. The HSM (Hardware Security Module) appliance ensures long term LoRa key protection in the infrastructure and increases reliability and robustness. With the joint solution, device vendors and solution vendors can now provision one set of security credentials in their end device at the time of manufacture and deploy it confidently anywhere in the world.

“This cooperation between G+D Mobile Security and Senet helps IoT solution providers and enterprises to easily integrate security and avoid flaws during the whole lifecycle of LoRaWAN equipment, starting from when they are produced,” said Bernd Müller, Head of Product Management, G+D Mobile Security.

The LoRaWAN Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification is intended for wireless battery-operated things in regional, national or global networks and can enable new opportunities and connectivity options for applications that require low power consumption and low bandwidth.

Through this partnership, the network infrastructure will be protected by integrating keys securely into the endpoints. Endpoints then connect securely to a LoRaWAN network, and the application data can be only read by the application provider. This mechanism, the partners say, increases the protection against different cyber-attacks intending to tamper with the data or the network.

“Security is a critical element of any communication technology and with the hyperconnected world of the Internet of Things, everything about data security and data privacy becomes that much more important,” said Dave Kjendal, CTO, Senet. “Our Partnership with G+D Mobile Security helps ensure device makers, solution providers and end users are following best practices that simply and cost-effectively address the complex security challenges of deploying IoT at massive scale.”
