TrustPoint is a trusted authority for secure Machine to Machine (M2M) communications. We provide both the mSecure SDK for building secure M2M applications and the mCA Certificate Authority (CA) for issuing device certificates. We specialize in enabling secure authentication of products and services within the M2M ecosystem, including Devices, NFC Tags and V2V Infrastructures.
The TrustPoint team pioneered the commercialization of efficient ECC security technology used today in a billion smartphones, Smart Grid devices, and other embedded systems around the world.
We specialize in providing cryptographic SDKs and a compatible managed certificate service for M2M applications. TrustPoint’s approach helps customers developing critical infrastructure applications embed the highest standard of security in constrained and mobile devices while maintaining central control over identities and authorizations. Unlike conventional security technology designed for relatively high powered computers running over high bandwidth Internet, TrustPoint’s ECC technology achieves the highest public key strength per bit, fits into the smallest of constrained devices, and supports an M2M certificate format specifically optimized to be small and efficient.
TrustPoint’s primary competitive advantages come from the expertise and experience of management and staff who are among the leaders in cryptographic research and implementations for ECC systems.
TrustPoint understands ECC technology and the intellectual property landscape for ECC extremely well, the team having been instrumental in inventing and patenting many of the now-standard algorithms that form the basis for modern public key systems. This knowledge is highly valuable in charting a course for future innovations.
TrustPoint has also brought together the critical practical knowledge for implementing effective software and services. The TrustPoint team has been responsible for the security systems underlying technology from dozens of global companies, including BlackBerry, the NSA, General Dynamics, Unisys, Motorola, Texas Instruments, Pitney Bowes, Oracle and Verizon. TrustPoint staff have developed and deployed commercial public key systems that have issued over 27 million certificates to date.
TrustPoint also employs leading experts in public key policy, an advantage that helps ensure our customers benefit from exceptional advice on certificate policies and practices. We participate in leading standards efforts for M2M security, for example in the NFC Forum where TrustPoint is currently the chair of the NFC Security Technical Working Group.
TrustPoint is applying these assets to the unique needs of the M2M market, where the technical constraints and high volume necessitate an innovative approach backed by uncompromising quality.
