Intrinsic-ID and Guardtime form alliance to provide security and governance for IOT blockchain
Intrinsic-ID, an embedded authentication company, and Guardtime, industrial blockchain platform powering digital transformation, have announced an alliance in order to provide a new level of security and governance for the Internet of Things (IOT).
According to the official release, the customer solutions will be leveraged on Intrinsic-ID’s SRAM Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) and Guardtime’s Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI) blockchain technology. The combination provides highly scalable data integrity and authentication down to the chip level.
“We are thrilled to be working with Guardtime to integrate PUF technology with Guardtime’s KSI blockchain. The combination of PUF technology and Blockchains represents a new level of security and governance for customers who wish to deploy IOT devices at scale,” Pim Tuyls, Intrinsic-ID CEO said.
Intrinsic-ID’s core SRAM PUF security technology is the foundation for establishing the latest advancement in key management and key protection in integrated circuits. Guardtime’s KSI blockchain is an industrial grade blockchain stack that has been underpinning governments since 2007. By using the PUF technology, the provenance and integrity of every piece of data can be proven cryptographically and linked back to an authenticated device with an end-to-end chain of custody. Through this, the authentication perimeter and data integrity are extended to the silicon chips, the origin of data.
“Having worked with PUF technologies over the last 15 years, I’m convinced that Intrinsic-ID is the first company to successfully industrialize the technology and bring it to the mainstream. We are extremely excited to be working with the team at Intrinsic-ID and look forward to building solutions that solve hard customer problems,” Matthew Johnson, Guardtime CTO stated.
The alliance will be conducting a series of pilots in a move to showcase customer security solutions. The key focus is on the mission assurance of defense customers as well as telecom operators that are rolling out smart city solutions in energy, health-care, and transportation.
