Future-Proof Security for Very Small Things

SecureRF to Present at the IoT Device Security Summit 2017

Shelton, CT, September 26, 2017 – SecureRF Corporation, a leading provider of quantum-resistant security solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced that its CEO, Louis Parks, will give a talk at the IoT Device Security Summit on September 28, 2017. Parks will speak about solutions for securing and future-proofing the small, resource-constrained processors typically specified for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Securing the low-resource devices, such as 8- and 16-bit processors, deployed in the IoT is difficult. Most security methods overwhelm a resource-constrained processor’s available memory and power. SecureRF is addressing this issue with asymmetric solutions for IoT devices that are fast, small, and require ultra-low-energy consumption.

In a presentation titled “Future-Proof Security for Very Small Things,” Parks will focus on the typical security challenges faced by IoT application developers, semiconductor vendors, and IP vendors. In particular, he will address the need for real-time, end-point authentication and data protection solutions that work effectively in constrained environments. Attendees will learn how to provide the requisite quantum-resistant security within the resource and power limitations of the processors that are being widely deployed throughout the IoT.

“Security is gaining in importance as consumers and manufacturers become more aware of the risks associated with unprotected or minimally secure IoT devices,” Parks said. “My presentation will use some of our current solutions to highlight approaches to future-proofing devices many of the attendees may be using now.”

During the talk, Parks will present two of SecureRF’s cryptography solutions—the Ironwood™ Key Agreement Protocol (Ironwood KAP) and Walnut Digital Signature Algorithm (WalnutDSA™)—which are ideally suited in terms of size, speed, and power for the small processors powering the IoT. Ironwood KAP and WalnutDSA are future-proof, providing critical protection against all known quantum attacks. These methods are at least 60 times faster than ECC and consume up to 140 times less energy.

The IoT Device Security Summit is a free one-day interactive summit that will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, CA on September 28, 2017. To request a meeting, contact SecureRF at info@securerf.com or +1 203-227-3151.
