WISeKey International Holding Ltd., a Swiss cybersecurity and IoT company, has announced that it has completed the localization of its Cryptographic Root of Trust in India, which enables the provision of digital identities to persons and secure devices connected to the "Internet of Things". The WISeKey Indian localization brings innovative security solutions that, together with the OISTE unique trust model, brings complete end-to-end cybersecurity solutions to protect the interactions of persons, applications and connected devices.

WISeKey's technology includes both the required software and hardware components to provide strong dual factor authentication and microchips to be embedded into all types of "Secure Things" on diverse industries such as distribution of products, anti-counterfeiting, smart cars, home security controls, video cameras, etc. WISeKey Semiconductors products (VaultIC product line), are a perfect solution for IoT device manufacturers requiring a state-of-the-art security coverage on all network types. Designed for low cost, power and surface constrained devices, it proposes industry standard connectivity, very low power consumption and a minimum footprint, and it's offered together with the WISeKey software PKI products and services, which provide the digital identity to authenticate devices.

The localized PKI deployment will also enable needs for other business needs, both in the private and public sectors. Most of the projects under the Ministry of electrics and Information Technology (MeitY) and Ministry of Urban Development like Mobile Identity based DBT (Direct Benefit Transfers), Jan Dhan Yojna, ESign, eGov, eSampark, Social Media etc., require execution of the Digital Core of these modernization programs. WISeKey PKI technology enables easy to use digital signatures and encryption, which are fundamental building blocks for secure online transactions.

WISeKey will also localize its offering for secure Mobile Solutions, like the WISeID Personal Cloud. WISeKey also has relevant applications in the private enterprise space. The digital payment initiative, backed by the GOI, is a compelling reason for a lot of private sector banks, e-commerce companies, and Telecom service providers, to adopt stringent Trusted Identity based security solutions, which again would have WISeKey PKI technology and the building block.

WISeKey is currently deploying large scale IoT digital identities and chips for connected devices all over the world using its Cryptographic Root of Trust and secure semiconductors technology. 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 desktops, 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.
