SUNNYVALE, Calif. – June 11, 2019 –
Intrinsic ID, the world’s leading provider of digital authentication technology for Internet of Things security, today announced Chief Executive Officer Pim Tuyls will speak at the GSA Silicon Summit, June 18 in Santa Clara. He will deliver an address entitled “Eyes Wide Shut” as part of the session “IoT Security – From Chip to the Cloud.”
The Internet of Things growth continues to accelerate and create opportunity. But, as many who are responsible for their companies' success and survival often seem content to ignore, so does the security risk. Ensuring IoT security has not kept pace with the rapidly evolving threat model. This should prompt many questions for those whose business relies on a secure IoT. "Can we be sure a device's firmware hasn’t been altered by hackers?" "Is secure two-way communications possible?" And "Can we scale to trillions of devices in a way that's commercially viable?" Securing endpoints in a reliable and robust method to achieve trust in the IoT can come at a significant cost. Strong device authentication is pivotal to confidently scale in a profitable manner. In this talk, Intrinsic ID CEO Pim Tuyls will describe how use of unclonable identities for IoT products is the best way to establish strong security in an industrial setting, and do so in an economically viable manner.
