GlobalSign Integrates Cloud PKI Solution with Arm Mbed Cloud

By

In a recent release, GMO GlobalSign, a Certificate Authority and provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced that its cloud-based, scalable Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) solution has been integrated with the Arm Mbed Cloud platform.

This integration is designed to enable any third-party developer using Arm’s Mbed Cloud to more quickly automate the issuance of digital certificates from GlobalSign, along with certificate management services. The integration also helps ensure that every Mbed supported device can now have a unique device certificate from a trusted third party such as GlobalSign.

GlobalSign has built a managed PKI platform to address the next generation certificate needs of the IoT. The GlobalSign platform offers the industry’s fastest certificate issuance capabilities of more than 3,000 certificate issuances per second along with unmatched certificate management volume. To complement this high performance, GlobalSign offers a simple and modern restful API to consume these Certificate Authority (CA) services. This enables technical partners and application developers to quickly and easily integrate PKI services into their offering.

“IoT security is an industry-wide challenge requiring a collaborative approach to securing devices across their entire lifecycle, while also reducing the friction organizations face with deploying and managing their implementations,” said Hima Mukkamala, GM, IoT Cloud Services, Arm. “The GlobalSign and Mbed Cloud integration allows organizations to leverage their existing identity infrastructure when securely authenticating their IoT devices, reducing complexity and providing additional flexibility.”

GlobalSign and Arm initially announced a partnership last year for enhanced IoT security.

“Today’s announcement speaks to the progress we have made in the last year to deliver IoT-driven services,” said Minoru Karasawa, Group CTO, GlobalSign. “Arm is demonstrating leadership through building, adopting, and natively integrating world class security into their ecosystem. Making it easy and clear to IoT developers how to incorporate proper security into their solutions starting at the design and POC stage that can scale to billions of devices is essential.”
