The move is intended to make the company's QuarkLink universal IoT security management platform available for use with the STM32 family of microcontrollers and STSAFE secure elements.
The Quarklink platform automates the processes of provisioning, onboarding, and lifetime management of IoT devices built upon ST’s semiconductor technologies. The processes, which typically take months to complete when done manually, can be completed with just a few mouse clicks on QuarkLink’s intuitive user interface. Thousands of IoT devices can be onboarded to one or more servers within minutes, without users needing any cryptographic expertise, to create robust and secure connections.
Commenting Shahram Mossayebi, Crypto Quantique’s CEO, said, “QuarkLink is the ideal complement to ST’s technologies for any company wishing to develop or deploy secure IoT devices and scalable networks. ST’s commitment to security is demonstrated through its STM32Trust strategy. QuarkLink connects ST’s technologies deployed within IoT devices to server-based applications and services in the fastest, most secure way, creating a complete end-to-end solution for customers.”
STMicroelectronics created the ST Partner Program to help customers’ design teams access extra skills and resources to speed customer development efforts. By identifying and making customers aware of ST-Partner companies with complementary products and services and adding a certification process that assures that all partners are periodically vetted for quality and competence, the Program is able to accelerate design and product development and can shrink time-to-market for new products.
