The primary challenge was to secure home IoT devices by embedding a certificate at the point of manufacturing.
Fortanix offered a unified Hardware Security Module (HSM) and Key Management Service (KMS) to establish trust throughout the entire device lifecycle with unmatched scalability.
The company needed a solution that could help secure its manufacturing process and ensure that the factory certified high-quality devices were installed on the customer site (building).
The challenge was two pronged:
At the manufacturing site, the need was to generate key pairs, store private keys and certificates.
And second, they needed to upload these certificates and transmit them to the customer site to verify and authenticate before deploying the factory certified devices.
Fortanix setup in the factory where devices are manufactured to issue certificates including building controller.
