Scalable IoT Security Enabled by EPS Global and Crypto Quantique Strategic Partnership

DUBLIN & LONDON, Feb 22nd, 2021 — EPS Global, a world-leading provider of IC programming and secure provisioning services, and Crypto Quantique, a specialist in quantum-driven cybersecurity for the internet of things (IoT), today announced a strategic partnership which will enable their joint customers to deploy secure IoT applications at scale.
EPS Global provides secure provisioning services from its global network of secure programming centers, and through its ecosystem partners delivers a complete end-to-end security solution for customers’ connected devices. Crypto Quantique has created QDID, the world’s first proven quantum-driven secure hardware IP for standard silicon and QuarkLink, a universal IoT security platform. QuarkLink handles provisioning, including secure firmware and cryptographic keys, automated secure onboarding, and security monitoring, including firmware encryption, signing and secure updates over-the-air, and certificate and key renewal and revocation. The quantum-driven cybersecurity solution enables vertically integrated, highly secure IoT deployments based on unforgeable hardware trust anchors generated by the device.
This partnership enables customers using Crypto Quantique’s technology to program their MCUs at production volumes in a secure EPS Global programming center in close proximity to their manufacturing factories anywhere in the world. EPS Global will also offer the QuarkLink platform, providing customers with scalable end-to-end security for their products.
“We are delighted to partner with Crypto Quantique”, said Colin Lynch, CEO of EPS Global. “Securing the IoT is a complex challenge and cybersecurity for the IoT is massively fragmented, we need solutions which combine the hardware and software. This partnership does exactly that. The combination of Crypto Quantique’s quantum security technology and EPS’s globally situated secure provisioning facilities is a practical solution. It ensures that devices will never be the weak link. They will be secure from chip-to-cloud, thanks to technology that is also easy to scale and maintain”.
Shahram Mossayebi, Crypto Quantique’s CEO, added, “Our partnership with EPS Global will eliminate the frustrations that so many companies have experienced as they’ve struggled to scale their IoT deployments without sacrificing security. Our technology and EPS’ secure programming capabilities close the IoT scaling gap and deliver a future-proof solution.”

About Crypto Quantique
Crypto Quantique has created the world’s most secure end-to-end IoT security platform. At its heart is the world’s first quantum-driven semiconductor hardware IP, called QDID, that generates multiple, unique, unforgeable cryptographic keys for devices manufactured using standard CMOS processes. The keys do not need to be stored and can be used independently by multiple applications on demand. When combined with cryptographic APIs from the company’s universal IoT security platform, QuarkLink, the solution creates a secure bridge between silicon, device, software, and solutions provider.
The company, which is based in London, UK, was co-founded by Dr Shahram Mossayebi (CEO), an expert in cryptosystems, and Dr Patrick Camilleri (VP Research & Innovation), a semiconductor designer with significant experience in complex parallel computer systems.

Using the DS28E18, The Basics

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

This application note goes over the basics of using the DS28E18 1-Wire® to I2C/SPI Bridge with Command Sequencer and discusses the steps to get it up and running quickly. It then shows how to use the device with two different devices. The first device is an I2C humidity/temperature sensor and the second one is an SPI temperature sensor device. It concludes with detailed logs of each command.
