Digital innovation has arrived private homes, with a rising number of connected IoT devices for intelligent management services. At the same time, security is a major issue in the smart home industry. Live Reply’s security strategy protects the IoT platform as well as the devices against possible data leakage and last generation threats.
A customer of Reply has created an IoT safety system for the residential segment, managed by a mobile application and a web-based dashboard. Live Reply designed and implemented a security framework, which allows to protect exposed APIs - used to manage IOT devices - through this mobile application. Moreover, the technology manages and protects the end customer’s digital identities.
The security framework considers the combination of two independent components which are best-of-breed and fully compliant with the customer’s requirements and policies. First, we introduced an API Gateway (based on Axway technology) as an intermediation layer between the channels and services, that plays the role of an Identity Provider Hub. The adoption of the API Gateway provides the architecture with the required flexibility and performance needed to support strategic business developments. Furthermore, a state-of-the-art enterprise Identity Access Management has been introduced - based on Red Hat technology, that secures the digital identities for people, devices and connected gadgets online, granting proper accesses to their functionalities.
