MILTON, ONTARIO, CANADA, September 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — VIBE Cybersecurity International today announced that it is making its patented key management and authentication technology available to fellow members of IoTFoundry’s Cybersecurity Technology Partner Program. Access to the VIBE technology will allow for collaboration and co-development of IoT security solutions which displace the need for PKI, can easily scale, and can be delivered economically.
Bill Montgomery, VIBE’s CEO stated, “We are thrilled to be part of IoTFoundry’s Cybersecurity Partner Program, and as a Canadian, I’m excited to see this initiative taking shape in Canada. We have had success in other parts of the world, including Singapore where we were selected to participate in the Project GRACE consortium along with the Government of Singapore’s Cybersecurity and GovTech Agencies. VIBE’s Authenticated Certificate-less Encryption – the ACE in GRACE – is being used to completely displace PKI, which is widely known to be vulnerable to outside attacks, and beyond that, is not able to scale to the levels required for IoT.” The GRACE solution will be showcased in Washington D.C., in February 2019, at Global City Teams Challenge, an event co-sponsored by the US NIST and Homeland Security.
Craig Stark, IoTFoundry’s Executive Director, added, “When I was first exposed to the IoT cybersecurity architecture which defines GRACE, I immediately knew that VIBE had technology that redefines the IoT security space. The approach has VIBE embedded in Hardware Security Modules that reside in the private or public cloud, VIBE embedded in chips on the end point IoT devices, and the transport security layer that connects them fully secured by VIBE. The approach delivers end-to-end, certificate-less security that is impervious to man-in-the-middle attacks. And with no digital certificates needed, there is nothing to manage, creating potential for significant cost savings. I’m delighted that VIBE has elected to enter the Canadian market as a member of the IoTFoundry Cybersecurity Partner Program.”
