Why Consumer IoT Products Need Security
Home IoT products offer many conveniences but there are massive amounts of private consumer data being transferred to and from these services vulnerable to attack if left unsecured. Security across an entire IoT home demands proper device authentication and data encryption to ensure that all connections are trusted and communications are protected.
How to Secure Home and Consumer IoT
Properly implemented Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) creates a foundation for systems, devices, applications, and users to interact safely with consumer IoT products. A PKI IoT security solution establishes identity before secure connections are made and encrypts communications that are sent.
Certificates for devices validate identities to make sure only authorized users, messages, or other types of servers have access to the device.
A certificate creates an encrypted link and allows information to be transmitted privately.
Certificates make sure that any messages or data transferred to and from “things” are not altered.
PKI Addresses Common IoT Security Challenges
Electrical engineers, software engineers, and manufacturers 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 with knowledge from our PKI engineers, we can help you design a customized solution, implement it on your desired timeline, and succeed from the start.

PKI Isn’t Just for Web Security
Despite common misconceptions, PKI is a perfect match for the exploding IoT sector, providing trust and control.
An ideal security solution for smart homes and appliances, PKI can be incorporated during product design, build, deployment, or ongoing maintenance.
Digital certificates can size up or down to accommodate any type of device
PKI easily scales so you can manage high volumes of certificates effectively
IoT certificates are cost-effective and priced for high-volume orders
