What are Device Certificates?

Proper authentication and encryption are a critical component of securing
connected devices.

A device certificate creates an identity for each “thing” in an IoT ecosystem, making sure each device authenticates as it connects, and protects communication between devices.

Why Device Communications Need Protection

Certificates mitigate risk for users and safeguard systems.

With thousands of unsecured devices connecting to the internet each day, private data communicated between devices are a prime attack point for hackers. Properly implemented, a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security solution provides strong device identity and encryption for in-transit data, and protects devices and networks from exploits.

How Device Certificates Work

Using certificates and PKI to improve device security is a growing need in our increasingly connected world. This is an example of how a certificate can be requested and sent to a device using the DigiCert Cloud PKI service.

PKI Addresses Common IoT Security Challenges

Device manufacturers, device distributors, and Chief Information Security Officers are just some of the roles tasked with the important job of deciding the best way to secure data in an IoT ecosystem.

Using the DigiCert Cloud PKI service and help from our PKI engineers, we can help you design a customized solution, implement it on your desired timeline, and succeed from the start.
