OT-Morpho has attained CSPN certification for IoThrive Tiny SE+, its embedded secure element for the Internet of Things.
CSPN stands for Certification de Sécurité de Premier Niveau, or ‘First Level Security Certification For Information Technology Products’, and the certification is provided by the French Network and Information Security Agency, a French government agency. In a statement announcing the CSPN certification, OT-Morpho subsidiary StarChip’s Security Manager, Jean-Yves Bernard, explained that in the certification process “all components of the solution were tested with means and methods that a hacker would use in the field,” adding, “Passing these tests creates real confidence in our product’s ability to resist” hack attacks.
The certification is OT-Morpho’s latest maneuver in establishing itself as a leading provider of embedded security technology for the Internet of Things. StarChip, for example, recently teamed up with Cortus in an agreement that would see its secure hardware embedded in the latter’s microprocessors for M2M hardware; and ASUS has integrated OT-Morpho’s eSIM into a new two-in-one tablet.
Explaining its value proposition in a statement announcing the CSPN certification, OT-Morpho asserted that “[b]eing able to guarantee privacy and security in the Internet of Things will be key for the market success of connected objects.”
