Bengaluru, NFAPost: WISeKey International Holding Ltd, one of the leading cybersecurity, AI and IoT company, today announced that it has integrated its WISeToken utility into the Oracle blockchain to enable machine-to-machine interactions. In other words, it can be used by drones and robots to secure IoT interactions (drone-to-drone or people-to-drone) and to recognize and trust each other.
The WISeKey Validation Service (the certificate’s validation authority), using the WISeKey Public Key Infrastructure, analyses WISeToken digital certificates to recognize and trust the identity of connected machines such as drones and robots when they interact with each other, and mitigate malicious actors and hackers from compromising these interactions.
WISeTokens are sold directly by WISeKey as utility tokens and generate revenue as a hybrid product/service offering. WISeTokens are not listed on secondary markets and are sold on a fixed price basis thus are not subjected to price fluctuations.
The WISeKey Validation Service offer objects the ability to send to the validation authority the third party’s public key and the digital certificate for validation. WISeKey checks that the corresponding public key holds a valid WISeToken and if so, the identity is verified. In order to receive the verification, the object making the request must hold at least one WISeToken in its wallet, which is valid for 12 months or 100 requests. WISeKey can, over time, adjust the number of utility tokens required to get verified, longevity of the token and entitled verifications per token.
The WISeKey Validation Service is used to verify the authenticity of the object’s digital identity in real time, thus ensuring secure use of digital identities for authentication of any object connected to the internet and the activation of attributes such as digital signing, transactions, or data transmission.
WISeKey’s platform is blockchain neutral and allows blockchain configurations to benefit greatly by the use of secure private keys instead of public keys currently used. Private keys secure data and transactions, which can be only conducted between authenticated parties – thus making it a very viable option for any sort of IoT transaction imaginable. Objects equipped with WISeKey’s Secure Element, called VaultIC184, consists of a tamper resistant silicon chip, based on a state-of-the-art secure microcontroller chip, which can be easily integrated to the device by its manufacturers.
