UBIRCH Cyber Security Solution for trustworthy data from Edge-Devices

Smart & revolutionary:
Our Cyber Security

Designed for
critical data.

In a fully networked world, where processes and data-based business models are enabled by digital duplicates, conventional models and solutions for securing data from Edge-Devices quickly reach their limits since they are not sufficiently scalable, economical or trustworthy to guarantee the integrity and authenticity of the data.

UBIRCH has rethought data security and is pursuing a revolutionary approach based on robust established cryptography and blockchain technology. The UBIRCH solution is easy to integrate into IoT platforms and other system environments, requires no additional hardware and consists of only two components: the Ubirch Nano Client and the Ubirch Trust Service.

  • How it works

    Before data is transferred from the physical to the digital world, we seal every single data packet directly at the point of data capture using robust cryptography and block chain technology. This creates an unalterable "chain of trust" that guarantees at source that IoT data is not manipulated, duplicated or deleted. The data can be verified by any recipient anytime, anywhere, just as if they were at source. 

  • UBIRCH Nano Client

    One of the two components required for the UBIRCH solution is the Nano Client, a small and lightweight software library. Designed for edge devices, tiny MCUs and SIM cards as well as for signing and chaining data into the blockchain-based UBIRCH protocol, the library is used directly at the source of the data acquisition.

  • UBIRCH Trust Service

    Our Trust Service completes the UBIRCH solution package. The user-friendly cloud service anchors IoT data in the block chain and allows users to check the authenticity and integrity of the received data via a REST interface. This is how simple and effective UBIRCH IoT security can be for digital duplicates.

The world's first
on-a-SIM solution

In collaboration with our partners G+D Mobile Security and 1NCE, we have developed the world's first solution that combines block-chain-on-a-SIM with connectivity services. The new service unites the security standards of mobile telephony with those of block-chain technology.

The solution works like a block chain that starts at the point of data generation, the IoT sensor. A private key located on the SIM card seals the IoT data. In the backend, these micro certificates are then stored in a so-called Merkle tree and anchored in public block chains. This creates an unchangeable and irrefutable data set for each individual sensor. Since the protocol is bidirectional, an IoT sensor can also check incoming data packets for authenticity and integrity. This provides efficient protection against unauthorized commands or unknown sources. The benefits for customers are enormous, since IoT data can be verified during each processing operation and new data-driven business models such as smart contract insurance are supported. Since only verifiable packets are processed, it also offers protection against major hacker attacks such as "man in the middle" or "packet duplication/suppression". 

Thanks to UBIRCH secured data, there are no limits to the scope of new data-based digital business models. We have put together some examples from different industries for you.
