G+D Mobile Security, Murata, and STMicroelectronics have teamed up to provide cost-efficient security for low power networks in the Internet of Things.LoRaWAN Secure Key Solution Aimed at Protecting 'Easy Targets' of IoT

The solution is meant for Low Power Wide Area Networks, or LoRaWANs. It’s based on a Murata-designed LoRaWAN module, and it uses STMicroelectronics’ STSAFE-A secure element and the STM32 microcontroller to enable secure key provisioning through the G+D Key Management System.

In a statement announcing the solution, the companies suggested that the IoT is connecting various devices into LoRaWAN and other networks, and that some of these devices “are an easy target for manipulation and attacks and therefore pose a serious risk to the application and indeed the whole infrastructure.” Hence the emergence of their security solution, as well as other competing offerings in the market like Gemalto’s Trusted Key Manager.

G+D Mobile Security, Murata, and STMicroelectronics say their solution will be available for trials starting tomorrow.
