TrustPoint Innovation Technologies, Inc.
Client Type: AC Graduates
TrustPoint Innovation is a trusted entity for secure machine-to-machine communications. Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) enables the secure exchange of data over otherwise unsecured media, such as the Internet. PKI is the underlying security mechanism for digital certificates and certificate directories, which are used to bootstrap the trust in a communication system. Unfortunately, today’s certificate authorities (CAs) are very rigid and are restricted in use. The only large-scale CA infrastructures are those that target transportation layer security (TLS) or secure socket layer (SSL) authentication and are designed to issue X.509 certificates for web service.
With the emergence of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, the traditional systems are not able to meet the need of issuing certificates for high volume and low cost embedded devices. TrustPoint Innovation addresses the current challenge by offering a trusted web service, which enables users and organizations to either obtain credentials directly or set up a custom solution that is suited to their specific needs.
