Making IoT Security Pervasive
One of the biggest hurdles in the current state of the IoT market is … Trust.
Currently it is way too easy to hack IoT devices or falsify transmitted data.
ubirch has developed a solution for this challenge: a protocol – implemented in software on connected devices and in the cloud – which guarantees the integrity of data which is exchanged between IoT devices.
Data packets are sealed in a way, that makes it impossible to modify this data later – at least not without red lights going on all over the place.
“For industrial IoT applications it is usually extremely important, that data from IoT devices can be distributed in a secure way – especially as we are operating in complex IoT ecosystems. The ubirch solution does look very promising for us to solve this.”
“As a multi-channel sales-house we have to be prepared for the responsive city of the future – where IoT technology will play a crucial role in the near future. How this can be secured with the ubirch solution – so that data can be made available to multiple stakeholders in a reliable way – does make a lot of sense from our perspective.”
“Insurers have to deal more with the fact that the Internet of Things also creates new opportunities to assess and hedge risks. ubirch has developed an interesting approach to generate particularly trustworthy data.”
“Logistics and Supply Chain Management is getting more complex and will need a more data-driven approach in the future. The ubirch solution helps to secure IoT data from the source and stores it in a blockchain – a very promising solution to the problem as far as i can see.”
“Parametric Insurances will become more and more important in the near future – but we also need solutions to get reliable IoT sensor data. The ubirch solution offers an exciting approach with an intelligent application of blockchain technology.”
“At T-Labs we are working continuously on exploring blockchain grounded business models and developing corresponding minimum viable products (MVP’s) – with a special focus on IoT, at the moment. The ubirch solution solves an interesting piece of the overall problem by making IoT sensors part of a blockchain and securing their data at the source.”
“Designing a healthcare device is tough – regulation, user-experience, battery-lifetime, firmware – there are tons of things that have to be solved. With the ubirch solution we were able to solve the critical task of securing data from these devices very easy – in the same time we were able to add a strong feature to our product without developing it on our own.”
“Blockchain and IoT represent an incredibly exciting combination – but often are conveyed too theoretically. The IoT workshop from ubirch, on the other hand, introduced the topic in a very practical way, and caused enthusiasm among many participants. In addition, concrete implementations were worked on very quickly, which are ultimately essential for understanding the business potential of the technology.”
Our solution guarantees, that:
the data has not been changed
the data originates from the device
time of recording
the data is not a duplicate
no data in a stream has been deleted
