The Vertical Cybersecurity Platform

The WISeKey Vertical Platform enables IoT devices to organize themselves into trusted networks based on criteria such as mutual authentication, identity and integrity. Only devices that can provide a recognized identity and a valid integrity report are able to communicate with other peer devices that reside on the cybersecurity platform.

By incorporating artificial intelligence at the chip level, together with the WISeKey Root of Trust, authenticated sensor data for IoT can be provided. The integration of AI into the WISekey RoT and Vertical Platform, will allows object to develop their own cybersecurity behavior and hopefully make smarter and safer decisions as a result, the company noted.

Root Trust

At the heart of this strategy is the OISTE-WISeKey Cryptographic Root of Trust which has been actively used since 1999 by over 2.6 billion desktop, browsers, mobile devices, SSL certificates and Internet of Things’ devices.

The OISTE WISeKey Cryptographic Root of Trust is ubiquitous and universal, and a pioneer in the identification of objects.

The WISeKey Blockchain is constantly growing as new blocks are added to it with a new set of recordings. Each WISeID node gets a copy of the WISeID BlockChain and gets downloaded automatically upon joining the WISeID network.

Through the WISeID Blockchain app the users are always in control of their digital identity stored on their mobile, IoT sensor and or computer and is only the user who determines which identification attributes are shared with social media, credit cards, merchant sites etc. never disclosing the Personal Identifiable Information (PII) if not required or necessary.

Secure Identity

Protecting your personal information is important to avoid impersonation and identity theft. It is fast becoming the foundation for online commerce and other applications that require security and authentication in an open network.

Internet of Things

WISeKey deploys large scale IoT digital identities for watches and wearables using its Cryptographic Root of Trust and NFCTrusted© technology. The Trusted Near Field Communications (NFC), which hardens the trust technology within NFC;

is poised to explode over the next five years, with the NFC-enabled wearable connected devices, smart watches and smart phones poised for us in payments and secure transactions.

Artificial Intelligence

Adding AI at the chip level together with the WISeKey RoT it will allow the IoT to provide authenticated sensor data. Current IoT data do not provide value for their manufacturers unless it can be converted into actionable,

contextualized information generated by IoT sensors fully identifiable. The majority of IoT devices are not built with embedded secured systems thus are very vulnerable.
