Elliptic Curve Cryptography Offers Trusted and Reliable Security for Utility Companies and Meter Manufacturers Worldwide.

Certicom's ZigBee Smart Energy certificate service issues ZigBee Smart Energy certificates to manufacturers whose products are certified by the ZigBee Alliance. The ZigBee Smart Energy PKI uses Elliptic Curve Qu Vanstone (ECQV) implicit certificates, which serve as an identity certificate for each ZigBee Smart Energy device as it gets enrolled on the network. Each certificate binds a device MAC address and manufacturing identifier to an ECC key pair, allowing the device to uniquely authenticate itself to the network using its private key. Elliptic Curve Cryptography enables the device to perform efficient and secure authenticated key agreement and perform digital signature operations.

Certicom provides a root of trust for all ZigBee Smart Energy devices, enhancing out-of-the-box interoperability and security, lowering the total cost of ownership for utilities and metering companies while ensuring the integrity of the utility network.
