IDEMIA and Kudelski Group Launch Global Partnership

In a recent release, the Kudelski Group, digital security company, and IDEMIA, augmented identity company, have together announced a global partnership to provide manufacturers and service providers a single integrated solution to manage the network connectivity and security of cellular IoT devices.


“In this age of digital transformation, protecting connected devices and the valuable data they generate is critical for the long-term success of the exploding IoT market,” said Jean-Michel Puiatti, Group SVP, IoT Security, Kudelski. “By combining our battle-tested security technologies with IDEMIA’s connectivity solution, we enable companies to deliver secure, connected products to market more quickly.”

“Our alliance with the Kudelski Group gives the IoT market a clear signal. We are thrilled to apply our expertise to help bolster IoT security backed by state-of-the-art technology providing for enhanced user trust in everyday devices,” said Yves Portalier, EVP, Connected Objects, IDEMIA. “This partnership for security is even more essential considering the tremendous potential for connectivity offered by 5G networks.”

The new global partnership integrates IDEMIA’s DAKOTA IoT (eUICC) and TSM (Trusted Service Management) solutions with the Kudelski IoT Security Platform. DAKOTA IoT is a secure hardware and operating system that allows device makers to remotely download mobile operator subscriptions to the connected objects deployed in the field and authorize them to use the network. The Kudelski IoT Security Platform provides device security (firmware lifecycle management), data security (transport- and application-level authentication and encryption), access management (token-based feature activation) and active security (monitoring and AI- based anomaly detection) to device manufacturers. The integration of the two solutions in single device makes sustainable IoT security more widely accessible and decreases the time to market for new IoT solutions.

The integrated platform reportedly is fully compliant with GSMA standards and uses Global Platform Alliance recommendations to ensure that security can be updated over the air using standard GSMA mechanisms across all worldwide networks.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
