More Security in the Internet of Things – Thanks to ETO

Friday, 16 September 2022 10:39

Anyone who is active on social media or shops on the Internet is familiar with the tiresome logins that are required for this. E-commerce providers, search engines and social media store the personal data used to log in on so-called identity servers. Individual users hand over control of this data to companies that are often based in countries outside the EU. This means that when it comes to data protection, it is usually not the GDPR that applies, but much more lax regulations.   

And this is exactly where ETO takes action.

The ETO GRUPPE has set itself the goal of automating communication in the Internet of Things (IoT) and, on top of that, making it more secure against access and manipulation. To achieve this, these "things" - machines, devices or vehicles - must first be given a unique identity. The solution of the innovative corporate group consists of a new type of network and authentication processes that have what it takes to revolutionize the way we use the Internet today. ETO uses a network of distributed digital identities (DIDs) and verifiable credentials (VCs). A side benefit from the perspective of human Internet users: they regain data sovereignty over their personal data. The ETO solution will enable secure logins on both the Internet and the Internet of Things (IoT).
