Welcome to Device Authority’s Developer Community.

As an award-winning cloud-based delivery platform that continues to revolutionizes IoT security, KeyScaler-as-a-Service (KSaaS) empowers organizations to achieve visibility and centralized control over the security of their connected devices.

In a world where the use of connected devices is growing exponentially, reactive ‘detect and respond’ strategies are not sufficient and a new set of security standards is needed to advocate a more proactive approach. KSaaS holds the answer and we want to provide you with the ability to put this to good use by developing new ways to extend its use to every type of environment, constrained device and use case.

Secure Key Generation, Storage and Distribution

Situation

Device Authority and Entrust partnered to provide solutions to a global manufacturer of automotive components that has multiple secure manufacturing lines that require a Key Distribution and Management System and PKI service to provision digital certificates to each OEM.
This manufacturer needed to be able to securely transport keys from the OEM delivery service to the remote factories. These keys are injected directly into the OEM’s vehicle electronic components, which are then distributed to end customers for inclusion in their finished automotive products. Those finished products needed to be able to close the loop with the initial key provider for auditing purposes.

Solution

Device Authority’s KeyScaler and Entrust PKI were implemented to provide:

  • A hybrid and high scale PKI service to provision digital certificates as a trusted identity, unique to each OEM
  • Certificate Lifecycle Management capabilities to reduce management overheads and risk
  • Device Identity management via the use of Device Authority’s Dynamic Device Key Generation (DDKG) technology
  • KeyScaler, a key distribution and management solution backed by the PKI, to securely transport keys from the OEMs of production equipment to remote factories worldwide
  • Policy-driven Encryption with granular read/write access permissions HSM Access Control for integration with third-party
  • HSM for secure and automated key generation and storage using HSM
  • Key generation and usage reporting for auditing

Summary
