u-blox strengthens IoT ecosystem security by implementing GSMA’s IoT SAFE recommendation

By GeoConnexion - 6th May 2020 - 15:00

u-blox, a global provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies, will strengthen the security of IoT ecosystems built upon its dedicated LTE-M and NB-IoT chipset by implementing a key set of security features endorsed by the GSMA. Support for the IoT SAFE (IoT SIM applet for secure end-to-end communication) implementation guide will be included in a software maintenance release for u-blox devices based on the UBX-R5 chipset, such as the new SARA-R5 series in 2020. The SARA-R5 series is a 5G-ready, software-configurable family of IoT devices that support LTE-M and NB-IoT communications over multiple radio bands. It includes a secure element, certified to the Common Criteria EAL5+ High security assurance standard, which also acts as a hardware root of trust (RoT) for processes such as authentication and encryption.
