SAMI + ARTIK = Secure IoT

Is the Internet of Things (IoT) safe and secure? There has been plenty of commentary over the past year that, at first glance, might make the uninitiated fearful to even consider an IoT project. But there’s no reason to panic, as our friends at the Samsung SAMIIO (SAMI) team recently demonstrated.

This is one of the aims of SmartThings OpenCloud, which is powered by SAMI. The SAMI team recently put together a demo that integrates ARTIK 10 with Samsung SAMIIO and its secure device registration (SDR) functionality. See their blog post for a video and details of the implementation, which shows how IoT devices can use SAMI to connect securely to the cloud.

As Sanjay Sarma writes in this editorial for POLITICO, IoT is in need of open standards that reflect the best decisions on system architecture. We need a platform that allows developers to intuitively, efficiently connect a broad gamut of applications to communicate with one another. Finding order in a tangle of devices and protocols, and fostering a collaborative approach to development, goes hand-in-hand with setting a secure foundation for IoT.

This is one of the aims of SmartThings OpenCloud, which is powered by SAMI.

ARTIK was built with security in mind, and SAMI likewise conforms to exacting security standards. The SDR proof of concept shows it’s not a stretch to have secure device registration available “out of the box,” giving you one less thing to worry about as you’re developing your best ideas.

We invite you to learn more at the SAMI website, and read more about the ARTIK integration on the SAMI blog.
