Intrinsic ID, the world’s leading provider of digital authentication technology for Internet of Things security and embedded applications, today announced its security technology has been deployed in more than 100 million devices. Intrinsic ID’s authentication technology is being demonstrated at the RSA Conference this week in San Francisco.

“Reaching deployment in 100 million devices is testament to the significant role security plays as the number of connected devices continues to accelerate, and it further emphasizes the high levels of security, reliability and ease of use our products offer,” said Pim Tuyls, Intrinsic ID’s chief executive officer. “System makers and the entire IoT supply chain recognize that their success depends on secure IoT devices, so it is no surprise that spending on security continues to ramp.” A recent report by research firm Gartner predicted spending on IoT security will continue to grow at an annual rate nearing 35 percent for the next decade.

Intrinsic ID leverages inherent manufacturing variations in chips to create unique IDs and keys to authenticate chips, data, devices and systems. At the RSA Conference this week Intrinsic ID will highlight BROADKEY and QUIDDIKEY, flagship products which both deliver a hardware-based root of trust for IoT security. QUIDDIKEY enables flexible key management and is easily integrated in any semiconductor design and scalable toward billions of devices. The BROADKEY software family is used to create, wrap and manage secure keys for IoT security as well as for authentication, and enables security deployment at any point in an IoT-connected product’s lifecycle.
