Japan's Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) is leveraging Gemalto's solution to create a secure connection for its Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
"As cybercriminals become increasingly sophisticated and organised, IoT security is now a growing concern. DNP and Gemalto are working together to counter these threats", said Michael Au, President of Gemalto in South Asia and Japan, in a press release.
DNP has deployed Gemalto's IDCore smart card platform together with Cinterion secure element, and SensorLogic Application Enablement Platform to roll out an enhanced two-way server and device public key infrastructure (PKI)-based authentication.
According to Gemalto, the solutions authenticate both the server and the communicating device of DNP to ensure a 'highly' secure connection for IoT devices like smart metres, point-of-sale terminals, and cash-handling machines.
"[Together with Gemalto, we are] set to build a new market, reinforcing the trust and expertise to grow our IoT business which safeguards our clients' privacy and sensitive data", said Kunimitsu Sato, Deputy General Manager of Communication & Information Centre, Information Innovation Operations of DNP.
