OT-Morpho receives CSPN certification for its embedded secure element for IoT

OT-Morpho, a world leader in digital security and identification technologies, today announced that its embedded secure element designed for the Internet of Things (IoT), IoThrive Tiny SE+, has obtained the highest level CSPN* security certification. IoThrive Tiny SE+ is the first embedded secure element of its kind to receive this certification awarded by the French security agency ANSSI**.

Connected Objects

OT-Morpho developed the IoThrive Tiny SE+ to manage identities and secure data in any non-cellular network. In the rapidly evolving IoT market, product security validation and certification is critical, especially in an age where every device can now become a target for hackers. Being able to guarantee privacy and security in the Internet of Things will be key for the market success of connected objects.

In contrast to other programs, CSPN certification covers not only the hardware, but also the software of the product. It confirms the security robustness of the whole IoThrive Tiny SE+ product.

To achieve CSPN certification, all components of the solution were tested with means and methods that a hacker would use in the field. Passing these tests creates real confidence in our product's ability to resist to any attack. This certification is yet another proof of our commitment to deliver products that can be fully trusted by our customers.
