GlobalSign has announced a partnership with Infineon Technologies to test the application of hardware, PKI and cloud services in IoT environments.

GlobalSign intends to incorporate its PKI solutions with Infineon’s TPM-equipped hardware security modules during the testing exercise.

The two firms believed their joint solutions could be beneficial in multiple industries.

“By integrating our PKI solutions with Infineon’s hardware, we are introducing strong security elements into the manufacturing process, allowing fast market introduction of secure devices, as well as supporting brand integrity," GlobalSign's IoT solutions vice president for product management Lancen LaChance said.

The two companies are set to perform proof-of-concept demonstrations of their technologies at the RSA Conference in San Francisco.
