WISeKey Selected as Collaborator by NIST for NCCoE


WISeKey Selected as collaborator by NIST for the NCCoE Trusted IoT Network Layer Integration Project

WISeKey works with the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) (NCCoE) in their Trusted IoT Device Network-Layer Onboarding and Lifecycle Management Consortium project.

Geneva, Switzerland – July 82022: WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey”) (NASDAQ: WKEY; SIX: WIHN), a leading global cybersecurity, IoT and AI company, today announced that it has been selected as collaborator by NIST for the NCCoE Trusted IoT Device Network Layer Integration and Lifecycle Management Consortium Project. Additional information about this consortium is available at: http://www.nccoe.nist.gov/projects/trusted-iot-device-network-layer-onboarding-and-lifecycle-management.

Other collaborators on this project include CableLabs, Cisco, Foundries.io, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Kudelski IOT, NquiringMinds, NXP Semiconductors, Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), Sandelman Software Works, and Silicon Labs.

For this project, WISeKey is working with NIST to define recommended practices for performing reliable network layer integration, which will facilitate the implementation and use of reliable integration solutions for large-scale IoT devices.

WISeKey’s contributions to the project will be credential trust services and secure semiconductors to ensure credential security. Specifically, WISeKey will offer INeS Certificate Management Service (CMS) for credential issuance and VaultIC secure semiconductors to provide tamper-proof key storage and cryptographic acceleration.

Paul Watrobski, IT Security Specialist, NIST NCCoE, said, “The secure deployment and maintenance of IoT devices throughout their lifecycle is a challenge for managing any home, small business or enterprise network. company. Every use case requires low-friction, reliable, and repeatable mechanisms for issuing and validating credentials and authenticating devices and networks. We are excited to collaborate with WISeKey to develop sample solutions to establish and maintain secure devices and networks.”

Carlos Moreira, CEO of WISeKey, emphasized, “We are honored to have been selected as collaborators in the Trusted IoT Device Network-Layer Onboarding and Lifecycle Management project. The secure identities, credentials and storage that WISeKey will contribute to this project are key elements for the overall security of IoT devices. Additionally, these demos will be important examples of best practices for IoT security.

NIST does not evaluate commercial products as part of this consortium and does not endorse any product or service used.

About the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE)
As part of NIST, the NCCoE is a collaborative center where industry organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions work together to solve companies’ most pressing cybersecurity challenges. This public-private partnership enables collaboration in creating practical cybersecurity solutions for specific industries, as well as broad cross-industry technology challenges. Through consortia under CRADA, including technology partners from Fortune 50 market leaders to small businesses specializing in information technology and operational technology security, the NCCoE applies standards and best practices to develop examples modular and easily adaptable cybersecurity solutions using commercially available technologies. The NCCoE documents these example solutions in the NIST Special Publication 1800 series, which maps the capabilities to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and details the steps required for another entity to recreate the example solution. The NCCoE was established in 2012 by NIST in partnership with the State of Maryland and Montgomery County, Maryland. Information is available at https://www.nccoe.nist.gov.

About WISeKey

WISeKey (NASDAQ: WKEY; SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN) is a leading global cybersecurity company currently deploying large-scale digital identity ecosystems for people and things using Blockchain, AI and the IoT by respecting the human being as the pivot of the Internet. WISeKey microprocessors secure the pervasive computing that shapes today’s Internet of Everything. WISeKey IoT has an installed base of over 1.6 billion microchips in virtually all IoT sectors (connected cars, smart cities, drones, agricultural sensors, anti-counterfeiting, smart lighting, servers, computers, phones laptops, cryptographic tokens, etc.). WISeKey is uniquely positioned to be at the forefront of IoT, as our semiconductors produce an enormous amount of big data which, when analyzed with artificial intelligence (AI), can help industrial applications predict failure of their equipment before it occurs.

Our technology is endorsed by the Swiss-based cryptographic root of trust (“RoT”) of OISTE/WISeKey which provides secure authentication and identification, in physical and virtual environments, for the Internet of Things, blockchain and artificial intelligence. The WISeKey RoT serves as a common trust anchor to ensure the integrity of online transactions between objects and between objects and people. For more information, visit www.wisekey.com.
