Let's automate device security provisioning

Today, I would like to share one of my personal experiences that brought us here, automate devise security provisioning with edge intelligence.

Let's go back in 2015. I was in the development of a distributed system. It was a system to connect 3D printers to the cloud and the users can remotely manage and control them.

To verify the tech, we installed the prototypes in dozens of locations such as an office and a factory. Then, we faced a devise provisioning and the number of data-related problems: a connection drops due to the facility's network configuration, an error occurs due to updates of the cloud, sensing data does not flow correctly to the cloud, and so on.

I remember we spent a massive time to set configurations and build the blocks such as a message bus and a queue-worker from scratch. In addition to them, we needed to consider more security building blocks to move to the product stage... It was really painful because we did not have enough resources at the time.

Now in 2021, by leveraging decentralized identity and hardware root of trust, we are able to develop a tool that makes it easy for all developers to automate device security provisioning and build end-to-end secure channels for data in motion. It can solve the challenges like the one I faced and enables IoT developers to focus on what matters most: improving customer experience and adding value with sensing data.
