Icon Labs announces Floodgate IoT security toolkit

November 21, 2016 - Icon Labs, a provider of security solutions for IoT and edge devices, announced its Floodgate IoT Security Toolkit. The solution enables IoT edge devices to be integrated with IoT cloud platforms, including Verizon’s ThingSpace IoT Cloud Platform, and provides security management for remote IoT devices from a single user interface.

The Icon Labs Floodgate IoT Security Toolkit provides connectivity to the cloud platform over a secure communication link for both normal device operation and for security management. The solution includes security countermeasures to protect the device from attack, intrusion detection to identify when the device is being attacked, and security management to respond to attacks.

Alerts from the intrusion detection module inform the user of security anomalies. These alerts are sent to the security management systems, allowing changes to security policies to be pushed out to each device in real-time.  The management system also supports software updates to be securely transmitted and installed, all using the same management interface.

Critical security countermeasures included are secure boot, encrypted communication, an endpoint firewall, and mutual authentication based on PKI certificates. 

The Floodgate IoT Security Toolkit is a security platform for IoT devices, providing a suite of device protection, secure credentialing services, and integration with IoT cloud services.  The toolkit includes the following Floodgate Security Framework elements: secure boot, secure software updates, firewall, intrusion detection, MQTT, TLS, key management/SCEP, and a management agent.

This solution is available today and has been integrated with Verizon’s ThingSpace IoT Platform and Verizon’s IoT Secure Credentialing Servicer (IoT SC), and demonstrated on the Renesas Synergy platform from Renesas Electronics America, Inc. The Floodgate toolkit supports any embedded OS including embedded Linux, Nucleus, ThreadX, UC/OS-III, LynxOS, VxWorks and other RTOSes.
