IoT SAFE (IoT SIM Applet For Secure End-to-End Communication)
Leveraging a hardware secure element, or ‘Root of Trust’, to establish end-to-end, chip-to-cloud security for IoT products and services is a key recommendation of the GSMA IoT Security Guidelines. This requires both the provisioning and use of security credentials that are inside a secure place within the device.
IoT SAFE (IoT SIM Applet For Secure End-to-End Communication) provides a common mechanism to secure IoT data communications using a highly trusted SIM, rather than using proprietary and potentially less trusted hardware secure elements implemented elsewhere within the device.
