NXM’s Autonomous Security Platform Aims to Protect IoT Networks without Human Intervention

NXM unveiled its Autonomous Security platform at Arm TechCon 2019, saying it will help create a more secure future for the IoT industry and enable machines to defend themselves with little or no human intervention.

Security is the chief preoccupation of the IoT industry, with companies racing to fill a crucial gap. With so many IoT manufacturers around, finding common ground is almost impossible. The solution would be to implement security from the ground up in a way that encompasses all devices, no matter who makes them.

A few solutions are already in the works, with developers emphasizing early attack detection and prevention. But what if security could be left to software that protects IoT networks without the need for human intervention?

NXM’s Autonomous Security platform presented at Arm TechCon 2019 employs Crypto Agility to PSA Certified Level 1. NXM said it would allow vendors and manufacturers to focus on products and leave the security implementation to a deeper level in the firmware.

“NXM leverages the advanced security features of Arm®-based chips to deliver scalable solutions that automate device onboarding and data versatility at the chip level, dramatically reducing the cost of deploying AI solutions and unlocking new recurring revenue opportunities,” explains the company.

The automated nature of the system is meant to eliminate human error, which usually manifests in overlooked vulnerabilities in security solutions. Such issues would be a lot less likely to occur because Autonomous Security uses a distributed ledger (blockchain) and agile crypto technologies to secure the encryption keys and the user’s data. Compliance with GDPR and California CCPA regulations has priority.

NXM says this new approach makes use of existing features in ARM-based chips and doesn’t require manufacturers to change the design or the architecture.
