The solution simplifies manufacturing secure Matter-device-credentials development and provisioning, in addition to reducing costs and time for IoT device manufacturers. With this integration, devices can be commissioned at the MCU level without developer intervention. This collaboration harnesses 35 years of experience from the CommScope Sentry™ team securely integrating cryptographic keys and digital certificates into high-volume manufacturing production with ST’s leadership in microcontrollers and development ecosystem.
“As a CSA promoter, ST is committed to making Matter development seamless for all device makers,” said
“By integrating the CommScope Sentry PKIWorks platform with ST’s popular MCU platform, we’re offering our customers a turnkey solution to alleviate the challenges of Matter adoption, while handling the complexity, scale, and cost,” stated
About PKIWorks, STM32WB and Matter
The PKIWorks platform is a secure and flexible credential provisioning and management platform, refined over decades of experience and billions of device credentials. It is now optimized for creating and delivering Matter device credentials — providing a fast track for manufacturers of all IoT devices to provide security and interoperability with the burgeoning Matter ecosystem. The PKIWorks platform leverages CommScope’s expertise in provisioning clients for device credential installation, particularly on resource-constrained IoT devices. These clients enable the support of a wide range of STM32 MCUs and STSAFE-A.
Matter is the new unifying smart home standard for interoperability and security among smart home devices. Announced in
Key PKIWorks Features
- The PKIWorks platform can generate over 30 billion device credentials annually and is designed to scale to even greater capacity, providing a solid foundation for future expansion.
- The platform generates Matter device credentials for a wide spectrum of IoT manufacturers and service providers, using the CSA-approved Root of Trust and the
CommScope Product Attestation Authority(PAA).
- The PKIWorks Provisioning Client can install various types of device credentials to STM32 and STSAFE-A —including the STM32WB55 microcontroller designed specifically for Matter devices.
- The STM32WB55 Matter SDK integration enables Matter Commissioning without the need for additional integration effort from device makers.
- PKIWorks solutions encompass both factory settings and over-the-air provisioning, providing Device Attestation Credentials (DACs) and Node Operational Credentials (NOCs) to support the security lifecycle of Matter devices.
PKIWorks services are available to device manufacturers designing with the STM32 and STSAFE-A.
