Ultra-secure device for critical IoT

  What is SecIoT?

SecIoT integrates an enhanced arsenal of hardware and software security features. It simultaneously ensures object authentication and protection of sensitive data in terms of confidentiality and integrity. Implemented security functions leverage both local capacities and offthe- shelves hardware security components to maximize security and performance. Along with encryption keys management, automatic recovery and quantum threat protection, SecIoT automatically detects when the case is opened to prevent reverse engineering.


  • Industry 4.0 
  • Health and well-being
  • Smart energy
  • Smart cities 

  What's new?

SecIoT offers an arsenal of hardware and software security for connected objects:
  • Secure case with opening or degradation detection
  • Secure software update
  • Management of encryption keys and cryptographic certificates
  • Protection of code and data using ARM TrustZone technology
  • Secure wireless communication interface (BLE)
  • Attack recovery strategy

   What's next?

CEA-Leti researchers will integrate the below security features in 2022:

  • Dynamic intrusion detection
  • Automatic recovery after an attack detection
  • Optimal management of remote IoT fleets to secure data
  • Optimization of power consumption
  • Protection against quantum threat using implementation
    of post-quantum cryptographic algorithms
