Available now for a wide range of applications and vertical markets, the joint solution aims to ensure integrity and confidentiality of the data exchanged and to allow the distribution of LPWAN keys in a fully secure manner. The area of application is long-range and low-power IoT (Internet of Things) technologies such as Low-Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN), when used in smart cities, smart agriculture, smart manufacturing, and work safety.


Non-cellular connectivity, such as through LoRaWAN, will play an important role in vital IoT applications, ST notes; non-secure devices in these important systems are an easy target for manipulation and attacks and therefore pose a serious risk to the application and the whole infrastructure. The new solution by G+D Mobile Security, Murata, and STMicroelectronics integrates security at the device production facility, adding value to the product and protection to the IoT ecosystem in an efficient and convenient way.


The offering consists of G+D’s Key Management System that relies on an STSAFE-A secure element attached to an STM32 general-purpose microcontroller, both from ST – built into a compact, cost-efficient LoRaWAN module designed by Murata. The joint offering forms the basis of a secure LoRaWAN ecosystem that provides end-to-end device security, lifecycle management of the LoRaWAN module, easy network deployments and tracking, as well as data privacy and integrity.


“G+D Mobile Security is a technology leader in secure ID management, and it is only logical for us to extend our proven expertise in payment and telecommunication to the IoT market, where we see an increasingly urgent need to secure the IoT ecosystem. Our Key Management System can authenticate, manage and monitor an IoT device throughout its lifecycle, and our partner solution with Murata and STMicroelectronics is an easy way for IoT device manufacturers to implement security,” says Carsten Ahrens, CEO of G+D Mobile Security.
