NXP launches flexible IoT Cloud Platform

1 min read

NXP Semiconductors has introduced the EdgeLock 2GO IoT service platform delivering easy, secure deployment and management of IoT devices and services.

The IoT security platform is integrated with NXP’s Common Criteria (CC) EAL 6+ certified EdgeLock SE050 secure element to protect IoT devices at the edge and securely connect them to one or multiple clouds and service providers.

“EdgeLock 2GO is able to provide a full range of choices and options that optimise the costs around credential and device management, while delivering advanced device security for companies operating in the IoT,” said Philippe Dubois, VP and GM of Secure Edge Identification at NXP. “The platform provides a highly flexible approach to IoT security that protects edge devices connecting to services and maintains edge device security throughout its entire lifecycle.”

The EdgeLock 2GO platform, combined with NXP’s embedded EdgeLock SE050 secure element for advanced key protection and management, delivers end-to-end security–from chip to cloud–based on a certified Trust Anchor.

The EdgeLock SE050 makes it easier to implement advanced security, and the EdgeLock 2GO streamlines secure cloud on-boarding and access to IoT devices from different service providers. It also simplifies application credential management with zero-touch connectivity to public and private clouds, edge computing platforms and infrastructure.

EdgeLock 2GO allows device makers and service providers to onboard or transfer their devices into cloud platforms. It provides tailored options for customers to register their devices on Amazon Web Services (AWS) using Multi-Account Registration, Just-in-time Provisioning and Just-in-time Registration.

EdgeLock 2GO supports multiple types of credentials and any IoT device, from sensors to edge-computing platforms, with the ability to tailor the options for device roll-outs. This level of flexibility accelerates time to market with late-stage device configuration in the field. It also enables device makers and service providers to dynamically connect their IoT devices to multiple clouds and service providers.

With many IoT devices designed to be in the field for several years, device manufacturers and service providers need to keep the security of their devices up to date throughout their lifecycle. Eliminating the need for device manufacturers to handle keys or certificates, EdgeLock 2GO makes it easier to maintain the security of the IoT devices in the field, and update, revoke or add new device credentials.

EdgeLock 2GO consists of three tailored options:

  • EdgeLock 2GO Ready for simple use cases, such as device onboarding to public clouds with pre-previsioned EdgeLock SE050 ICs;
  • EdgeLock 2GO Custom for creating custom EdgeLock SE050 ICs to support complex configurations; and
  • EdgeLock 2GO Managed for managing credentials and multiple services throughout the device lifecycle.
