Quick and scalable PKI deployment for telecom security
How to secure IoT networks and communication infrastructure?
Telecom companies are changing the way we connect to the world by adopting and offering new innovative services. As network operators, they can provide IoT infrastructures to easily manage connected devices. Carrying and communicating sensitive data, they can however be targeted by cyberattacks and need to ensure system security and data privacy.
Through the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology, it is possible to provision and manage devices and provide trusted digital identities securely relying on certificate management. Electronic certificates are used to support strong authentication for devices and data confidentiality for data in transit or in storage. PKI capabilities can be provided on demand for IoT services, such as devices registry, enrollment and authorization for communication.

4G and 5G: prepare for the next security and scalability challenges
Mobile networks have considerably evolved in the last years. The next evolution from 4G to 5G should also improve the power and capacity provided to support the growing IoT ecosystem. Alongside high user mobility and reliable communication, the security of the 4G and 5G networks infrastructures must evolve, answering to new challenges and standards. Operating a PKI solution can be the key to the operators’ success for:
► Connected devices authentication to be sure organizations are only working with trusted identities for messages integrity
► Certificate management scalability to support the networking power of 5G and meet the growing IoT requests
► Capacities to support advanced cryptographic operations for encrypted communication protocols in real-time
