Trusted identities for IoT simplified

More and more companies in all sorts of industries choose to subscribe to a service for PKI lifecycle management for their IoT application instead of operating the PKI solution on-premise. The service approach brings multiple benefits:

  • Focus on core business. You can focus on your core business and let experts manage the complex PKI solution. No need to invest in PKI education for your staff and infrastructure to operate the solution in-house.
  • Expertise and compliance. An external service is dedicated to the PKI purpose, operated by experts and in compliance with relevant policies, regulations and Common Criteria EAL 4+ high security level.
  • Pay-as-you-grow. Minimize your initial investments and pay as you grow. Shift CAPEX to OPEX. If your IoT business grows more than expected, the service capability can easily be scaled up.

How does it work?

Setting up your IoT application and devices for managing and using PKI certificates demands careful planning and implementation work. During this period, you can use the Nexus GO IoT test service to be able to test and verify your IoT application.

By signing up to the Nexus GO IoT trial version, you can quickly get started and test the service. The trial version helps you develop and verify the certificate provisioning and the PKI-based security functions.

After signing up to the service, Nexus will set up a customer-specific certificate authority (CA) and certificate management processes according to the specification of the customers. The certificate content can be adjusted and verified before devices are marketed and productively deployed.

The test service is available via an API, and suits various devices, including resource-constrained and battery-powered ones, by support for protocols such as EST-coaps.
