Secure Digital Transformation

Within the telecommunications industry, communications service providers are facing a number of advances - social, financial, economic and technological innovations.

In many instances, they have in fact fuelled the evolution of the digital economy by providing platforms and environments such as successive generations of network infrastructure (presently manifested in the rollout of 5G). In these new infrastructures digital innovation can thrive. New market entrants and business models are introducing ‘value models’- putting incumbent players at risk of losing their ‘traditional’ pole position with their customers.

Old revenue models based on text messaging, traditional phone calls and connection charges are increasingly marginalized. Communications service providers now reinvent their strategy by either providing greater levels of capacity or by offering unique services such as privacy, security, augmented analytics for big data as well as seamless integration across other technologies or services.

This results in the requirement for the implementation of systematically designed security which in turn, must support the full infrastructure platform, data, process and partners and physical environment. Furthermore, the increasing importance of IoT also adds to this challenge.

The telecoms  infrastructure has shifted from data usage to data driven analysis, distribution, security and monetization of data collected from multiple sources. How that data is leveraged and secured end-to-end becomes critical within this sector.

Utimaco provides proven solutions for secure end-to-end processes, empowering telecommunication operators and service providers to become the secure, agile backbone for new digital services that keep data safe and private.

Trusted Digital End-to-End Processes

Digital Signatures

Digital signatures leverage PKI certificates to offer the highest levels of security for regulated and sensitive document use cases such as insurance applications, claims and changes to policies. In compliance with regulations such as eIDAS, they also provide legal assertion.

Multi Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication securely restricts access to the service infrastructure and reliably identifies the user. Hardware security modules (HSMs) generate, manage and store the secure cryptographic keys required for authenticating a user or device in a broader network.

5G Technology

With 5G networks being built on software based models, ensuring security from the infrastructure layer to the application layer is an essential factor for consideration. HSM-protected 5G creates secure channels between devices and the telecoms infrastructure.

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)

Security of 5G device-to-device communication requires a secure PKI-Infrastructure to manage encryption of mobile traffic, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity of sensitive information. Encrypting data at rest and in transit guards it against theft or tampering, and guarantees that digital identity provides secure authentication of users, connected devices and applications to protect against fraud. A PKI solution also turns certificate management scalable to support the networking power of 5G, meeting growing IoT requirements.

Payment processing

From Merchant’s Points of Sales, mobile devices and ATMs, Utimaco covers the complete chain of PIN encryption, authorization, PIN translation and Key Management through Acquirers, Switches and Issuers. Utimaco’s Atalla Division invented encrypted PIN and ATM messages in the 1970s and has led the evolution of standards and innovation ever since.

Multi-cloud Key Management

Bring-your-own-key concept allows to securely and remotely generate & manage keys across the hybrid cloud and the complete life cycle, retaining full control over the data, and assuring data security and privacy at any time and at any location.

Post Quantum Crypto Agility (Future Proofs and PQC)

At this time, no quantum computer can run quantum algorithms, however once they are able to, these computers will decimate the security infrastructure of the digital world. Post-quantum crypto-agility is a necessity for the telecommunications infrastructure to be able to evolve in the advent of a new generation of attacks and consequently evolving cryptographic standards and algorithms.
