The Role of Third-Party Evaluation in IoT Security Explained
Independent security evaluation is crucial to implementing security in a trusted manner, considering that any smart device connected to the internet is exposed, and at risk. Building trust in the security of IoT devices among developers and customers is essential for the prosperity of the IoT industry. However, consistent testing by trusted third parties is not yet the norm in the IoT industry.
PSA certified is the IoT security certification program building trust in products, minimizing risks and guarantees compliance to standards, supported by ARM and other key players in the IoT industry. It is an industry-driven initiative, advocating the use of independent third-party testing as the norm for building trust across the entire IoT ecosystem. This multilevel IoT security certification scheme was designed for silicon vendors to serve as evidence for the level of security they need for their use cases. It helps IP vendors, Software vendors and OEM manufacturers, understanding and communicating the security functionality in their products. Showing compliance with the security functionality provided by the PSA Root Of Trust (PSA RoT).
