eMudhra Launches IoT Security Solution emSecure for Smart Cities

emSecure uses cryptography to secure a smart city ecosystem through issuance, management, and authenticating identity and embedded devices

eMudhra, a market leader in the secure digital transformation space has launched emSecure, an IoT security solution for smart cities. emSecure is designed to be deployed on any IoT platform that supports trusted platform modules. emLabs, housed at eMudhra’s R&D center in Bangalore is gearing up for large scale smart city projects. Their state-of -the-art PKI suite will help cities deploy a secure IoT ecosystem, thus ensuring trusted communication between devices and mitigating the risk of man in the middle attacks.

V. Srinivasan, chairman, eMudhra said, “The usage of connected and smarter devices to augment our lives on a daily basis has proliferated extensively over the last few years. IoT is helping cities evolve in a smarter way, leading to smarter buildings, self-driving cars and much more. However, with a rise in the connected devices ecosystem, privacy and security cannot be compromised. Connected devices or smart devices are increasingly networked, making critical systems more vulnerable to cyber-attacks which could result in compromise of sensitive data and controls. emSecure an IoT security platform aims to address this very risk in an effective and scalable manner. Needless to say, this was a natural next step in eMudhra’s evolution given our focus on identity and transaction management.”

Using industry standard communication protocols, emSecure powers provisioning, deployment and management of identity for users and embedded devices in a secure manner using cryptography (PKI). More importantly, it does so in a manner that is easy to deploy and easy to use with a wide scope for integration with devices of all types.

emLabs has also ensured that emSecure is compatible with LoRA devices to enable long range connectivity and improve the network reach for more efficient and cost effective smart city networks.

LoRa stands for Long Range; it’s a technology that uses unlicensed spectrum below 1GHz and a form of direct sequence spread spectrum modulation, which provides signal detection below the noise level. As a result this technology is able to use extremely low transmit power levels and can fulfil many of the requirements for long battery life, making it conducive for machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless communication.

In short emSecure enables IoT security at a large scale with reliable encryption helping build trust across customers, users, and smart city networks.

eMudhra is a technology company which enables secure digital transformation through sophisticated solution focusing on key pain points such as identity management and encryption. eMudhra was established in 2008 and is a certifying authority in India and Mauritius in addition to holding the Vice Chairmanship of Asia PKI Consortium and chairmanship of India PKI Forum. eMudhra has also been recognized by UN and other global bodies for its work in the digital transformation space.
