With an aim to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi Smart Cities project in India, eMudhra has launched emSecure, an IoT security solution for smart cities. Company said that emSecure was designed to be deployed on any IoT platform. It further said that emLabs, eMudhra’s R&D center in Bangalore is working on for large scale smart city projects. PKI suite will help cities deploy a secure IoT ecosystem ensuring trusted communication between devices and mitigating the risk of man in the middle attacks.
Using industry standard communication protocols, emSecure provision, deploy and manage identity for users and embedded devices in a secure manner using Cryptography (PKI). emLabs has also ensured that emSecure is compatible with LoRA devices to enable long range connectivity and improve the network reach for more efficient and cost effective smart city networks, said company.
“The usage of connected and smarter devices to augment our lives on a daily basis has proliferated extensively over the last few years. IoT is helping cities evolve in a smarter way, leading to smarter buildings, self-driving cars and much more. However, with a rise in the connected devices ecosystem, privacy and security cannot be compromised. Connected devices or smart devices are increasingly networked, making critical systems more vulnerable to cyber-attacks which could result in compromise of sensitive data and controls. emSecure an IoT security platform aims to address this very risk in an effective and scalable manner. Needless to say, this was a natural next step in eMudhra’s evolution given our focus on identity and transaction management,” said V. Srinivasan, Chairman, eMudhra.
