PARIS LA DEFENSE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Thales has announced its encryption key management and software licencing platforms have been chosen by Secure Channels to protect its quantum-resilient encryption keys for its IoT-enabled devices. By using Thales’ key management platform, both companies’ customers will benefit from increased data protection no matter the connected device, even if there is no current security protection in place. In addition, Thales’ software licensing platform will enable easy access to Secure Channels’ cybersecurity software technology for customers and manufacturers, thus ensuring all IoT devices can be protected easily either at source or retrospectively.
Thales’s enterprise key management platform provides secure storage for the larger-than-average encryption keys required for long-term data protection. Secure Channels’ XOTIC strong cryptosystem ranges in encryption strengths from 512-bit to more than 8,000-bit protection. XOTIC’s “bottom floor” is twice as strong as the prevalent 256-bit encryption that will have questionable efficacy against post-quantum attacks. The combined key management and evolved-encryption solution gives customers highly secure, archive-level data protection across each IoT-enabled device they develop and own.
