SecureRF Corporation recently announced that it has joined the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) and accepted an invitation to participate on the IoT Security Working Group. SecureRF is a provider of security tools delivering identification, authentication, and data protection optimized for low-resource processors and embedded devices.

The GSA IoT Security Working Group was formed in late 2018 to address end-to-end issues in IoT Security. It is comprised of chipset vendors, platform companies, cloud vendors and service providers. The working group's purpose is to promote best practices in IoT security, share information on threats and attacks, define security requirements and inform standards bodies.

“SecureRF is an acclaimed innovator in the industry addressing quantum resistant IoT security threats with its unique cryptographic technology platform and solutions,” said Shrikant Lohokare, Ph.D., SVP and Executive Director, GSA. “It is great to have SecureRF on the GSA IoT Security Working Group bringing that expertise that I am sure will go into making high value contributions to various projects being undertaken and generating robust end-to-end security guidelines for benefit of all actors in the IoT ecosystem.”

“As a solution provider, we are eager to bring a complementary perspective to our semiconductor partners on what it takes to deliver device-to-device security – from provisioning to life-cycle management,” said Louis Parks, CEO, SecureRF. “We are pleased to join GSA in its mission to support standards-making organizations with insights on the full range of devices being deployed, their security risks and methods available to make them secure. Through this important work, we also plan to help provide decision-making support to product manufacturers as they beef up security on a wide range of devices at the edge of the IoT.”
