TAIPEI, Taiwan, October 24th, 2017 –
Taisys Technologies Co., Ltd. (head office located at Taipei-city, Taiwan, CEO Jason Ho – referred as Taisys herein) , Cybertrust Japan Co., Ltd (head office located at Shinjuku-ku Tokyo, CEO Shinichi Ata – referred as Cybertrust herein) and SoftBank Technology (head office located at Shinjuku-ku Tokyo, CEO Shinichi Ata – referred as SBT herein) have concluded an agreement in collaboration of developing and providing an Integrated Secure Management Platform for mobile devices.
The Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards contain various identities and en/decryption information for Smart Phones and other IoT Devices. In recent years, technologies capable of remotely provisioning on this SIM card via a mobile network are widely used in the M2M segment and consumer market. It is expected that these SIM cards will be further used in various applications which need high sophisticated security operations.
Taisys owns the technology to securely embed identity information in the tamper resistant area within the SIM Card. Taisys’ Tamper Resistance technology has been deployed in security segment and financial services successfully. The encryption algorithm of Taisys’ SIM card has been certified by American NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). Moreover, the remote provision technology of Taisys eSIM/Thin SIM can fulfill the connectivity requirement of IoT device globally.
Cybertrust’s “Secure IoT Platform” provides a comprehensive device management solution. With digital authentication information embedded securely within the SIM cards from the manufacturing stage, and by interacting with the Authentication System, “Secure IoT Platform” identifies such device(s), and allows only the authorized device(s) to access the respective Cloud Services. It will also allow safe distribution of authenticated software updates provided by the manufacturer(s).
This Basic Agreement was concluded to bring together SoftBank Technology’s Cloud implementation and operation with Cybertrust’s Secure IoT Platform to develop a service which ensures providing security structure to the devices from the manufacturing stage to shipping stage.
The Integrated Secure Management Platform for mobile devices will link the respective technologies of the three company, namely “SIMoME® Thin SIM”, “Cloud Service Development and its Operation”, “Digital Authentication”, and “Embedded OS and Structure for Secured Software Updates” to serve a new “Mobile Business” model with in-built security throughout the life-cycle of the utilized devices.
