Longview Partners with GlobalSign and Intrinsic ID on IoT Security

By

Longview IoT, a Carnegie Technologies company, recently announced a new partnership with GMO GlobalSign, a global Certificate Authority and provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Things, and with Intrinsic ID, provider of digital authentication technology for Internet of Things security. Together, the trio of best-in-class providers built world-class security into the Longview solution to guard against attacks before they happen.

Longview is a comprehensive collection of custom-engineered sensors, gateways, cloud analytics, and industry-specific applications that come pre-configured to work right out of the box. As a self-contained solution, there are no servers to buy or computer experts to manage. Longview foresaw the need to maximize IoT security and took a proactive approach by partnering with best-of-breed security providers from the onset rather than reactively fixing issues as they arise.

Layer 1: Longview’s triple-layer security includes the robust LPWAN network protocol LoRaWAN, which can cover vast areas that cannot be covered by Wi-Fi and may not have cellular connectivity. LoRaWAN includes native symmetric 128-bit encryption on every transmission on the network.

Layer 2: Longview incorporates Intrinsic ID’s SRAM PUF, a Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) to generate a device-specific key based on minuscule anomalies of each semiconductor, similar to a human fingerprint, to uniquely identify each of Longview’s sensors and gateways.

Layer 3: Each Longview device includes two security certificates provided by GlobalSign’s IoT Identity Platform and are automatically provisioned by GlobalSign’s IoT Edge Enroll solution. This protects both the device in the supply chain as well as the data transmitted on the LPWAN network, thus truly enabling a secure, connected ecosystem with a Strong Device Identity for every one of Longview’s IoT devices. Longview’s data is then stored in a private, secure cloud infrastructure that provides the final layer of comprehensive data security.

“We have made IoT security the utmost priority with Longview throughout the entire solution, from our sensors to the cloud, and into the field,” said Brad Bush, managing director, Internet of Things, Carnegie Technologies. “Working with GlobalSign and Intrinsic ID ensures that businesses and users are protected by best-in-class technologies at every point in the system, ensuring that our solution is secure and future proof for enterprises of any size.”

“These three companies working together have created a truly impressive IoT solution,” said Lancen LaChance, VP, product management, IoT Solutions, GlobalSign. “The security focus that Carnegie has implemented into the product design and development of Longview with GlobalSign’s IoT Identity platform is outstanding foresight from the lowest component all the way up to the cloud.”
