Looking at the most common configuration of IoT systems, there are two problems in Device Control & User Authentication.

  • Static value or unencrypted plaintext are used in most of the command delivery. 
  • Without a verification process between server and device, any received information could be transmitted to the IoT device as it is, without being checked whether it is from a legitimate control server. Therefore, when command information is stolen, IoT devices can be easily controlled by unauthorized systems (hackers).

[To-be]

You can expect unparalleled increased security when verification is performed on the SIM card with OTAC (One Time Authentication Code) Applet applied.

  • When the control server sends commands to the LTE gateway, it generates and sends OTAC.
  • Only the commands that have passed OTAC SIM verification can be delivered to IoT devices, preventing the problem of any commands being delivered to devices as they are.
  • OTAC is valid only at 'one time' and continuously changes dynamically. Even if a hacker steals the OTAC, it cannot be reused.

[As-Is]

  • Enterprises issue and manage on average 3.5 cards per each employee for payment, identification, and access purposes.
  • As a result, people rely on their mobiles more for integrated functions
  • This results in over-reliance on a single device; battery limitations, restricted area access and closed network environments can be problematic. 

[To-be]

  • All-in-one simple card with integrated authentication security service that enables payment, financial transaction authentication, access authentication, and app/web login by simply embedding the OTAC applet
  • This OTAC embedded-IC Chip card (dual interface chip, NFC supported) minimises the use of smartphones or access devices .
