Collaboration brings “zero-touch” onboarding of devices to Google Cloud IoT
with NXP A71CH, Plug and Trust Secure Element
Sept. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NXP Semiconductors N.V.
(NASDAQ:NXPI) today officially announced a solution for secure, scalable
connections of devices using NXP’s A71CH to Google IoT Cloud. NXP is providing
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) a “Plug and Trust” experience for
authenticating to Google Cloud IoT Core.
NXP’s A71CH is a trust anchor, ready-to-use security solution designed for
integration into next-generation IoT devices, such as edge nodes and gateways.
When embedded into devices, the chip signs a secure token and is validated by
Google IoT Core to enable seamless peer-to-peer cloud connections with private
credentials pre-injected for autonomous cloud onboarding and authentication.
“Security is a critical concern that must be top of mind when deploying and
managing IoT devices that connect to the cloud,” said
Antony Passemard, Head of Product, Cloud IoT at
Google. “This solution makes it easy for developers to add a strong
identity encryption and access control. We’re happy to work with NXP, a
recognized industry leader in IoT and security, to simplify development of IoT
devices with embedded security.”
“Security-by-design is key to unlocking the next wave of IoT device
connections,” said Philippe Dubois, senior director and
general manager of IoT security solutions at NXP. “Our solution aims to solve
scalability and complexity issues commonly associated with securing and
managing edge devices. We’re happy to see Google Cloud embrace and encourage
security in next-generation devices.”
To automate the process of cloud onboarding, device credentials are
pre-injected into a A71CH and public keys are delivered to the customer via a
NXP web interface thereby eliminating the need for complex, costly OEM
configuration processes. Injection of device credentials can be made at the
NXP secure manufacturing facilities or through NXP approved programming
