IQS, a label to guarantee the security level of your connected objects

Digital.security, the European entity dedicated to the security of connected objects, announced on June 20th in Paris the launch of the IoT Qualified as Secured (IQS) certification program, the first certification program for Internet of Things (IoT) players.

What is a label?

A label is an identification element that guarantees certain aspects of a product, service or company and usually takes the form of a logo.

The “IoT Qualified as Secured” (IQS) labelling program is offered by digital.security to Internet of Things (IoT) players who want to have the security of their IoT solutions verified by an independent third party.

A security standard adapted to the IoT

The IQS label is only awarded to IoT solutions that have demonstrated that they meet a set of security requirements. This indicator is used to inform future IoT Solutions buyers, individuals or professionals, about the security of connected objects.

With more than 14 billion of IoT objects currently in circulation, connected objects have become a prime target for cybercriminals.
Two levels of certification are delivered, standard and advanced. The label is awarded for a period of two years to IoT solutions (objects and associated services) with between 25 and 30 points depending on the level of certification requested.

“IoT Qualified as Secured” (IQS) is based on a framework of national and international safety standards, good practices and safety requirements.

Digital.security seeks to meet the requirements required in the countries of the European Union. The aim of Digital Security, which has incorporated criteria specific to certain European countries, is to make IQS an international label

Initiatives similar to that of Digital Security could happen in the coming months or years.
