Flexible Security at Scale with Rigado and NXP Semiconductors


Rigado Announces Flexible Security at Scale for Rigado Gateways Using NXP’s A71CH ‘Plug & Trust’ Secure Element

Rigado Cascade White Gateway

One of the mission-critical components of commercial IoT that Rigado brings to clients is security. We do that through managed security updating and a commitment to partner with the industry’s most secure software and hardware providers.

At Embedded World 2019, Rigado and NXP® Semiconductors announced another step toward providing premier security, ensuring that Enterprise IoT applications — powered by Rigado Cascade — maintain a secure and reliable device-to-cloud data chain.

NXP A71CH Security IC

Rigado’s Cascade-500 IoT Gateway — the hardware component of our integrated solution for edge connectivity, computing and security — now comes equipped with NXP’s A71CH Security IC. This chip allows for flexible and secure connections to a range of cloud services, including Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure, without writing security code or exposing keys. It also delivers an increased level of security through a robust, hardware-based key update and management solution.

In a press release, Rigado CTO Justin Rigling explained the additional value of the new chip, saying:

“Our integration of the A71CH ‘Plug & Trust’ solution allows us to remove the cost of ownership and complexity of credential provisioning of gateways with unique TLS certificates. This is something that previously required the manual registration of each individual gateway onto the cloud service.”

The A71CH solution means Cascade gateways come equipped with the intelligent handling of secure connection protocols, digital signatures, digital certificates, and asymmetric cryptography algorithms to generate private and public keys. Further, Rigado Edge Direct monitoring tools make it easy to manage gateways and apply evergreen security updates at scale.

In short, the addition of the secure chip to the Cascade solution will help to ease the burdens of complexity, risk, and cost associated with deploying an IoT solution at commercial scale.
