Intertrust Home(™) is an application toolkit that provides a single software stack allowing data operations,IoT device authentication, and command operations to work as one, regardless of cloud or device infrastructure. The toolkit enables the development of multiparty trusted and interoperable smart home data ecosystems to support new, useful, and differentiated smart home applications.
Intertrust Home combines the features of several Intertrust products namely:
Intertrust Platform XPN – XPN allows trusted device and data operations from the IoT device to cloud and back, persistently protecting data and authorization traffic while at rest, in processing and in transit. XPN also enforces security policy and authentication at the endpoint, including IoT devices, set tops, gateways and smart TVs. One benefit of XPN is it allows companies to procure secure hardware enabled IoT devices from most any manufacturer for use in their ecosystems.
Advanced Data Federation and Governance Capabilities – Leveraging Intertrust Platform, companies providing services and connected devices to the home can build trusted data-driven partnerships with their partners, regardless of which underlying data technologies and clouds they use. Intertrust Home also has features to ensure compliance with privacy and other data-related regulations.
ExpressPlay Multi-DRM and XCA Conditional Access – Home network operators with current media services or those who wish to add them can use ExpressPlay Multi-DRM, the world’s most deployed Digital Rights Management (DRM) system. XCA Conditional Access, a converged DRM system supported by a growing number of smart TVs, including LG, Sony, Vestel, HiSense and others, is also included as an option.
Intertrust Home is designed to be used for home service providers, such as network operators, to create new multiparty data-driven applications. Here are examples of potential partnerships:
Intertrust Home is not a smart home automation tool nor is it a home IoT device security solution. Intertrust Home is an application toolkit focused on interoperable and secure authentication of home IoT devices, persistent protection of data as it travels from the device to the cloud and back, and trusted, private federation of data between multiple partners. Intertrust Home also includes options for video content protection. With a consistent focus on trusted data collaboration, Intertrust Home is a unique offering in the market.
Matter is an IP-based connectivity protocol. Intertrust Home requires an IP stack on the device, but otherwise it is connectivity agnostic and works over any network type be it Zigbee, Zwave, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
Intertrust Home offers a number of business benefits for network operators, some of which are listed below:
No need to invest in complex new infrastructure and marketplaces: In order to engage in trusted data collaboration with partners, companies are often told that they need to invest in and move their data into specialized cloud data infrastructure or marketplaces. Intertrust Home is designed to work in conjunction with a company’s current data infrastructure without the need for large scale movement of data.
Companies have to comply with an ever increasing number of privacy and other data related regulations to avoid expensive fines and reputational damage. Intertrust Home leverages Intertrust Platform’s extensive auditing and data governance functionality helps companies keep sensitive data private and simplifies regulatory compliance.
