Lifecycle management is a key principle of security and it is even more critical for IoT environments where edge devices will remain unattended for long period, over 15 years in some cases.
Secure lifecycle solution does guarantee the IoT chain security during all the device life providing remote functionalities for the connected IoT devices, including deployment, software and firmware update, key management and configuration of managed devices. These solutions will be deployed as Cloud services.
Secure lifecycle solution have value if it can rely on a secure device. Secure hardware (such as secure elements and secure MCUs) or Secure Software Libraries are at the forefront of providing this trust.
