Talkpool automates secure device provisioning with The Things Enterprise Stack

Amsterdam, February 17, 2020 - The Things Industries today announces the partnership with Talkpool offering state-of-art secure LoRaWAN® solutions featuring secure boot, encrypted firmware and hardware protected key handling with secure elements to ensure full security of data for customers in real-estate, energy, and industry. The devices from Talkpool uses the Global Join Server service of The Things Industries, which was unveiled at The Things Conference event in Amsterdam last month (ref - link).

Data security is key, when more business processes use sensors and meters as an integrated part of the main business processes. Talkpool has leveraged on its telecom background, to provide state-of-art security solutions in all our products.

Stefan Lindgren, CTO at Talkpool

Talkpool has now taken one step ahead, to fully automate and enhance security regarding key distribution and device provisioning. A full end-to-end secure mechanism has been developed together with The Things Industry. End-customers and integrators do not need to handle any security keys and end-customers can securely claim devices from the Things Industry Join Server.

"We’ve achieved automation of the key distribution with full security. This enables the device distribution through distributors, integrators and end-customers, without exposing any security keys. Mass-deployment of sensors requires efficient distribution channels, without sharing any security keys with the intermediate distributors. The end-customer can through this be sure that only they control the keys.”, continues Stefan. “We have had a very good cooperation with The Things Industries in the development of the solution”

Happy to be pushing LoRaWAN to a higher level of maturity by jointly working on pushing the right IoT security practices with our partnership with Talkpool. Great side effect is the increased efficiency and lower total cost of ownership.

Wienke Giezeman, CEO at The Things Industries
