WISeKey: WISeKey is making available its Cryptographic Root of Trust to IoT providers and chipmakers to bring security to the connected devices

Geneva, August 28, 2015 -
WISeKeytoday announced that it has made available its Cryptographic Root of Trust to IoT manufacturers and Chipmakers allowing them to add digital certificates on their chips at the hardware level to encrypt the communication and authenticate the devices.WISeKey is currently deploying large scale IoT digital identities for watches
and wearables using its Cryptographic Root of Trust andNFCTrusted©
technology. This trusted technology integrates wearable technology with
secure authentication and identification, in both physical and virtual
environments, and empowers IoT and wearable devices to become secure
transactional devices. WISeKey has patented this process in the USA as it is
currently used by many IoT providers (for more information visit:

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=...).

TheRoot of Trust
(RoT) serves as a common trust anchor, which is recognized by the operating
system (OS) and applications, to ensure the authenticity, confidentiality and
integrity of on-line transactions. With the Cryptographic Root of Trust
embedded on the device, the IoT product manufacturers can use code-signing
certificates and a cloud-based signature-as-a-service to secure interactions
among objects and between objects and people.

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.

It is estimated that the global wearable market will grow at an annual rate of
35% over the next five years. The rapid growth of the number of connected
devices is driving the shift from the current traditional mobile payment
method to highly secure transactions from wearable devices using trusted
communications and authentication technology. WISeKey's Cryptographic Root of
Trust and NFCTrusted© technology enables these wearable devices to connect
safely and make secure payments and other transactions.

The WISeID NFCTrusted© can be embedded in a connected device without requiring
device modification or app downloads. WISeKey's NFCTrusted© technology is an
evolution of the WISeAuthentic solution that WISeKey has already deployed
with several leading luxury brands, including over 1 million watches
digitally tagged and for which WISeKey recently obtained a US patent
(http://goo.gl/ozgOQm). In February 2015, WISeKey and Bulgari launched the
first ever intelligent mechanical watch using WISeKey's NFCTrusted©
technology (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAyKfPOYwws), which allows the
watch to execute payments and other transactions without using a mobile phone
or other devices connected to the internet.

NFCTrusted© authentication tags incorporate a WISeKey cryptographically secure
digital certificate to prove authenticity. NFCTrusted© tags can be embedded
in virtually any product, piece of equipment or common household item, and
users can verify authenticity with an NFC-enabled smart phone, watch,
connected device or other mobile device. This technology not only optimizes
security and convenience, but also eliminates the need for special readers or
other equipment for tag authentication by using proof of presence. "The
combination of trust and convenience opens the door for the use of WISeKey's
NFCTrusted© tags in diverse markets to support a variety of IoT
applications," said Carlos Moreira, CEO of WISeKey.
