Industry Internet-of-Things (IoT) alliance backed by Microsoft, Qualcomm and Symantec, the AllSeen Alliance, Monday announced major authentication and device authorization updates to the AllJoyn open source framework for IoT. The new functionality builds on AllJoyn's existing end-to-end data encryption and message-based security, adding rich semantics that extend familiar security models from the cloud and app domain to the devices that make up the IoT. 

AllSeen said that with this addition, AllJoyn-enabled devices will work safely and securely, regardless of platform, manufacturer, transports, OS or chipset. The AllSeen Alliance recognizes that the use cases for connected devices, services and applications are highly customized by the user and provider, requiring a security framework that can offer protection across a breadth of scenarios.

Philip DesAutels, Senior Director of IoT, AllSeen Alliance
For IoT to see mainstream adoption, and more importantly truly make people's lives better, any fears or concerns about security and device privacy must be addressed. We're enhancing AllJoyn's security with collaboration across the IoT ecosystem, allowing us to standardize security for IoT, regardless of manufacturer or use-case.
