GlobalSign and Intrinsic will integrate their security technology into the Longview IoT solution to guard against attacks before they happen.

Longview IoT is teaming up with GMO GlobalSign, an identity and security solutions provider for the Internet of Things, and with Intrinsic ID, a digital authentication technology provider for IoT security.

The trio of companies has worked together to integrate their respective security technology into Longview.

“We have made IoT security the utmost priority with Longview throughout the entire solution, from our sensors to the cloud, and into the field,” said Brad Bush, managing director of Internet of Things for Carnegie Technologies. “Working with GlobalSign and Intrinsic ID ensures that businesses and users are protected by best-in-class technologies at every point in the system, ensuring that our solution is secure and future proof for enterprises of any size.”

Longview offers a comprehensive selection of customized sensors, gateways, cloud analytics and industry targeted apps. Everything comes pre-configured for ease of use right out of the box. Companies do not need to buy new servers or have computer experts on staff to manage it. Longview partnered with GlobalSign and Intrinsic to create a proactive approach to give enterprises the IoT security solution they need to stop attacks before they happen.

The triple layer security of Longview starts with LPWAN’s LoRaWAN, ideal for areas that cannot get WiFi or cellular connectivity.LoRaWAN features 128-bit encryption. The second layer is Intrinsic ID’s SRAM PUF, a Physical Unclonable Function (PUF), which is used to generate a device-specific key based on the anomalies of each semiconductor, a process similar to human fingerprints. The keys are used to identify each sensor and gateway in Longview. Layer three includes two security certificates from GlobalSign’s IoT Identity Platform and are provisioned by the company’s IoT Edge Enroll solution. This offers solid protection of the device in the supply chain and its data. The data is then stored in a private cloud.

“Sound security depends on a hardware-based root of trust, and Longview’s use of Intrinsic ID’s software IP ensures device identities are unclonable and makes it possible to secure the IoT solution at the factory,” said Pim Tuyls, chief executive officer of Intrinsic ID. “We’re pleased Longview chose such an aggressive security strategy as it goes to market with its IoT solutions.”

The Longview IoT solution features a customizable dashboard for real-time asset tracking and analytics. Configurable alerts can be sent via text or email and designed for oil and gas, construction, medical, smart buildings, smart cities, utilities, and other industries.
