GlobalSign has launched a new IoT Developer Portal to provide IoT developers a set of integration tools. These tools will improve integration productivity by helping them with device identity integrations.
The developers need to do a lot of research and evaluate the technology components before integrating them into their tech stack. It is difficult for them to find the IoT security solution that fits the best for their solutions.
IoT Developer Portal introduced by GlobalSign IoT Solutions Group is a complete suite of integration tools, that includes software development kits (SDKs), client libraries, utilities, API documentation and integration guides. These tools will assist developers in integrating PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) based identity in their IoT devices.
“Our IoT developer portal is a key component of our developer program,” said Nisarg Desai, GlobalSign Director of Product Management, IoT. “It improves integration productivity by providing a centralized locale where developers can access all the tools they need to successfully integrate Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based device identity as part of their IoT security component.”
The new portal will allow developers to interact with the GlobalSign IoT Solutions Group team. This will help them to gain guidance on successfully provisioning device identities.
Developers will also be able to develop and test their proof of concept (PoC) with free X.509 digital test certificates.
“We put everything in one place, so serious developers don’t have to chase what they’re looking for, and the response has been phenomenal,” adds Desai.
“We’re one of only a handful of IoT developer portals out there, and the only one focused on device identity and security, so we’re ahead of the curve, and it’s an accomplishment that our customers and partners appreciate. They’re using it to secure IoT devices with trusted identities, streamline IoT integrations with proven tools and methodologies, and accelerate their own products’ time to market.”
To help developers in maintaining the privacy of their projects, the new portal establishes separate and private extranet areas for individual organizations.
