ARM spin off Kigen has teamed up to provide integrated, eSIM-based systems for smart grid applications

IoT developer and service provider Kore is working with Kigen and operating system developer Energy Web to combine eSIM and OPEN IoT SAFE software development kit.

Energy Web is already using Kore’s OmniSIM system as a hardware wallet anchored to an open-source, publicly accessible blockchain. This allows smart grid developers to build their own applications using an open-source technology stack that is focused directly on the transition to renewable energy.

As part of the collaboration between Kore and Kigen to deploy OPEN IoT SAFE, a purpose-built SDK designed by Energy Web was used as part of the development process. The ability to provide trustworthy information to third-party IoT providers via eSIM, which builds in device-level security and can authenticate data for a user’s cloud service, securely communicating data at the packet level, is a monumental leap forward in creating end-to-end security within the IoT ecosystem.

IoT SAFE offers a robust, scalable, and standardized technology to protect IoT data communications on the SIM, enabling IoT connectivity.

“Kore has long supported security by design and securing IoT solutions from the ground up,” said Romil Bahl President and CEO of Kore. “We are thrilled to be able to support this innovative initiative that brings IoT security to the forefront and doesn’t pass along the full brunt of security downstream. High-value collaborations like those with Kigen and Energy Web enable our IoT security initiatives.”

 “Secure storage of credentials such as device identities is vital for delivering connected services, and the resulting data must be trustworthy,” said Vincent Korstanje, CEO at Kigen. “We’re pleased that this collaboration allows this by combining KORE’s strength in eSIM connectivity and Energy Web’s decentralized technology to move the world towards a zero-carbon economy.”

The energy marketplace pioneered by Energy Web will be shown at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where Kore and Kigen discuss the accessibility of eSIM, security features, and emerging trends.
