Security

90% of IoT Devices
are unprotected

"Most IoT devices lack security by design…treating customers as techno-crash test dummies" - James Scott, Sr. Fellow, Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology

Certified Secure

NXM Autonomous Security™ is the first software platform of its kind to be certified under Arm's Platform Security Architecture (PSA) program by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the world's leading safety certification company. PSA is the industry's first IoT certification program spanning developers, hardware and silicon providers that provides a comprehensive approach to security evaluations and verification of trustworthy devices by an independent third-party testing lab.

Autonomous Security

NXM Autonomous Security has five levels, each of which represents the next step in achieving full autonomy.

Level 1
Platform Assistance

Devices are dependent on centrally-managed platforms for enrolment and provisioning.

Level 2
Identity Autonomy

Devices attest to their own self-generated identities. Automated enrolment, network provisioning with identity-based verification

Level 3
Network Autonomy

Devices organize themselves into self-governing networks and can change their security algorithms to adapt to evolving threats, including quantum computers.

Level 3
Network Autonomy

Devices organize themselves into self-governing networks and can change their security algorithms to adapt to evolving threats, including quantum computers.

Level 4
Device Autonomy

Breaches are automatically identified and remedied. Edge computing increases anomaly detection and ecosystem monitoring.

Level 5
Full Autonomy

Full security feedback loop automates network self-healing. AI detects vulnerabilities while allowing devices to keep working.

How we do it

NXM Autonomous Security™ enables IoT devices to defend themselves against hackers without the need for human intervention. NXM is a chip-to-cloud software platform that leverages the advanced security features of today’s chips to enable brand manufacturers to easily create trustworthy products that provide unparalleled security, privacy protection and data integrity features. NXM has been engineered to address a wide spectrum of IoT needs, from automated device onboarding to unprecedented data versatility at the edge. These capabilities can dramatically reduce the cost of developing artificial intelligence systems and data-driven business solutions that can unlock new recurring revenue opportunities.

Identity

NXM transforms ordinary connected devices into autonomous, self-governing machines capable of managing their own security. To be considered autonomous, a device must first possess a unique self-generated ID that works over any communication network. NXM’s patented software enables a processor to create and permanently store its own unique identity in protected memory as well as on an immutable Distributed Ledger. Immutable machine identity is the cornerstone upon which all autonomous device networks operate.

Transparency

There is strength in numbers. That’s why every NXM-enabled device registers its unique ID on a private digital ledger that acts as a single source of trust for verification purposes. Only devices with IDs on the ledger are considered trustworthy. Machine identity is used for all data communication and cloud storage applications, eliminating the need for vulnerable passwords or security certificates. NXM Distributed Ledger™ acts as a key exchange system which enables authorized stakeholders to freely communicate and cooperate with each other.

Automation

Each device acts as an intelligent node in a fully distributed, peer-to-peer network of self-governing devices that autonomously maintain and update their encryption keys based on whoever holds the Root of Trust. Data communication is fully encrypted from the chip to one or more authorized stakeholders without the need to rely on the security of intermediate communication networks. Device and system integrity are automatically monitored using consensus and proven blockchain processes to enforce behaviour and remedy potential breaches. Rogue IoT devices can be detected and quarantined outside of enterprise firewalls, then restored to health using NXM’s unique agile crypto capabilities.

Agility

NXM employs agile cryptography that enables devices to automatically change their cryptography at any time. Devices can have their security keys, algorithms or entire frameworks upgraded remotely in the field. The device is able to remedy potential breaches by immediately generating new encryption keys, permanently blocking past key holders from communicating with the device.

Future Threats

NXM’s agile crypto technology safeguards devices from rapidly evolving cybersecurity threats, including quantum computers. NXM Quake™ is a breakthrough quantum-safe encryption solution designed to protect high-value assets, from sensors to satellites and other critical communication infrastructure, against the threat of quantum attacks. NXM Quake requires no changes to existing security protocols or enterprise processes and is designed to run on any embedded hardware or system.

5G

NXM has been engineered to support Software Defined Networks (SDN), edge processing, network slicing and other 5G technologies. Future Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) support will enable NXM customers to take advantage of machine learning at the device level, leveraging the potential of next generation Neural Processing Unit (NPU) chips to support secure distributed computing applications at the edge.

Security By Design

NXM Autonomous Security embodies security by design software engineering principles, enabling highly automated and secure device network deployments. NXM is compatible with Arm® PSA, Intel SGX and similar security solutions from leading chip makers.
