Intrinsic ID announced IKV has launched its software-based security solution equaling hardware level for IoT security. The company used Intrinsic ID’s BroadKey, a secure root key generation and management software solution to secure its products.

According to IKV, its KVSoftKey enables cryptographic system deployment, intellectual property protection, IoT device management and identification, and digital copyright management.

Chip integration and production processes are eliminated by the technology. It allows for integration with MCUs developed by STMicroelectronics.

If a system has already been embedded with secure elements, KVSoftKey-generated root of trust could serve as the access key to the secure element.

BroadKey, which is a recipient of the IoT Security Product of the Year, helps IoT device manufacturers to anchor connected products with a secret key or identity without the need to add security-dedicated silicon.
