At Mobile World Congress 2022 in Barcelona, WISeKey will showcase its VaultIC semiconductors with IoT microchips at the trade show.

WISeKey developed the semiconductors to promote the European Chips Act, which aims to reduce Europe’s dependency on non-European Union (EU) made chips and strengthen the EU’s chip-making capacity. The semiconductors are “tamper-resistant,” secured with firmware that provides “digital security and cryptographic function” to Cold Wallets.

It is also used with other “cryptographic-enabled devices.” The semiconductors are configurable to provide “cryptographic services for authentication, data confidentiality, and integrity checks.” Bundles included with the semiconductors are “standard, NIST-recommended cryptographic algorithms (such as ECC, RSA ECDSA, AES, SHA), and associated key lengths.”

The semiconductors also include a “certified, hardware-based True Random Number Generator” and “tools for protected boot, a secure firmware update for IoT devices, and secure communication (SSL/TLS) stacks.”

WISeKey (WKEY) is based in Geneva, Switzerland. It is a leading global cybersecurity company that develops “large-scale digital identity ecosystems for people and objects using Blockchain, AI, and IoT.”

The company claims an install base of over 1.5 billion microchips across most IoT sectors including connected cars, smart cities, drones, agricultural sensors, anti-counterfeiting, smart lighting, servers, computers, mobile phones, crypto tokens, and more.
