Applus+ offers a wide range of assessment, testing and certication services for IoT products and solutions.
Cybersecurity in Connected Home Appliances
The increasing popularity of connected home appliances has raised privacy concerns among consumers. In the EU, this has led to strict new data protection regulations (GDPR), which manufacturers of connected appliances will need to take into account if they want to access the European market.
Applus+ Laboratories has years of experience carrying out security evaluations on different types of products, making us a trusted partner when it comes to increasing your appliance’s security. Our services include:
- Mobile app security assessment.
- Design review to help your team to spot defects and potential problems*.
- Penetration testing of your device (black box or white box).
- Source code review*.
Smart Grid & Smart Meters
Smart Grid and Smart Meter devices will play a key role in critical infrastructures. Furthermore, their networks will be used for the transmission of confidential user data. Therefore, robust security is vital in order to protect both energy systems and data privacy.
Applus+ can help you guide you through the increasingly complex international regulatory scene for Smart Meter and Smart Grid solutions. We offer certification services like Common Criteria or ad-hoc security services ranging from Risk Assessment to Penetration Testing.
Since the arrival of cloud services, securing backend infrastructure and relying on a secure backend infrastructure is becoming more and more important for many users. Whether to meet the requirements of a certification process or simply because of increasing customer demand for assurance when it comes to data security, a third party assessment of your backend security might be essential.
Based on our experience conducting Common Criteria and EMVCo site audits and evaluating difference classes of devices we offer:
- Assessment of physical and logical security measures.
- Vulnerability analysis.
- Penetration testing (black box, grey box or white box).
Other Connected Devices
There are many other IoT devices where security should be taken into account from the beginning of product development (e.g. wearables, toys, health care devices). Our experience in successfully evaluating both hardware and software solutions makes us your trusted partner to help you securing your IoT solution.
We offer certification under Common Criteria or ad-hoc evaluations for when a formal evaluation is not required.
Compliance check and technical support with different standards or best practice guidelines.
* Note: Because Applus+ Laboratories is accredited as a third party laboratory by several evaluation and certification schemes, and in order to guarantee its impartiality, Applus+ engineers are never involved in actual product development or solutions implementation.
