QuoVadis Managed PKI Solutions for Internet of Things (IoT)
17 Sep 2015

With remarkable speed and ingenuity, physical devices are being connected to the Internet, allowing the creation of new features and efficiency for both users and service providers. However, in this new Internet of Things (IoT), it is crucial to identify and secure these connected devices as they become more intelligent, collect and transmit more information, and allow greater remote control.

Digital certificates are a well-established tool for enabling trustworthy interactions between IoT devices, whether on the Internet or private networks. However, a mission-critical PKI can be difficult to implement and manage without knowledgeable and dedicated resources in-house.

“QuoVadis’ proven managed PKI solutions provide the flexible platform for securing the Internet of Things, whether the project involves thousands or millions of devices,” said Roman Brunner, CEO of the QuoVadis group. “Customers leverage QuoVadis’ investment in high performance PKI, as well as secure and resilient hosting facilities, allowing them to focus on their own core competencies in hardware or service development.”

QuoVadis is a leading global certificate authority, active in both the TLS/SSL and eID sectors, as well as a top provider of managed PKI for multinational corporations. QuoVadis has operations in five European countries, and operates multiple PKI trustcenters for availability and disaster recovery.

Acknowledging that certificates are just one piece of the IoT deployment, QuoVadis’ PKI-as-a-Service and flexible business models help minimize CAPEX, align costs with revenue, and accelerate rollout for customers.

QuoVadis’ proven PKI platforms are well suited to IoT digital certificate challenges, capable of issuing thousands of certificates per second, delivered via modern web services. QuoVadis offers custom certificate policies tailored to the IoT device capabilities -- including alternative algorithms, flexible validity periods, and custom EKUs -- required for the smart home, smart energy, and mobile device sectors.
