The SESIP scheme enables implementers of IoT platforms to demonstrate that their platform provides specific functionalities and services to installed IoT apps and protects them against state-of-the-art attackers.
With the consolidation of 5G networks, products that take advantage of increased connectivity with higher speed and low latency will proliferate. One of the major challenges that the certification ecosystem is facing is the lack of security certification alternatives. Vendors require viable certification solutions while aiming to increase confidence of their clients in terms of security. These solutions need to balance a shorter time to market and sufficient level of security assurance.
Applus+ is continuously working to serve the industry’s needs, and decided to license their cybersecurity laboratory to extend their service portfolio and conduct SESIP evaluations.
What is SESIP?
Applus+, a SESIP-certified evaluation laboratory
“IoT products are comprised of more components than traditional security evaluation approaches were designed to address,” comments Gil Bernabeu, GlobalPlatform’s Technical Director.
“SESIP is designed specifically for IoT platforms and their parts, and offers an optimized approach to IoT security evaluation. Applus+ has successfully met all of the security criteria required by GlobalPlatform and TrustCB to become a SESIP-certified evaluation laboratory. Certification is essential to facilitate trust and confidence across the IoT ecosystem. GlobalPlatform looks forward to seeing how Applus+ will leverage its SESIP license to further foster IoT market stability and growth.”
IoT Applus+ Service Portfolio
This new accreditation reinforces the position of Applus+ as a partner for the IoT ecosystem in providing solutions to enhance the confidence of IoT product users, by means of industry-focused certifications. SESIP methodology is very flexible, and is divided into different levels of assurance:
Applus+ is able to evaluate all options, being an expert laboratory accredited up to CC EAL6+ under the CCN scheme, which is part of SOG-IS, besides being able to conduct SESIP evaluation following TrustCB SESIP scheme. We can help you decide the best approach for your project.
