BOSTON, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GMO GlobalSign ( www.globalsign.com), a leading provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Everything (IoE), and Beame.io Ltd, a security framework and trust provider for the connected world of the future, are enabling users of any device, such as mobile phones, laptops, IoT devices, etc., to establish a secure HTTPS connection to a browser. The provisioning to remote servers happens through Beame.io's open source framework, made up of several software development kits (SDKs).
Beame.io is using GlobalSign's short-lived Organization Validated (OV) digital certificates to enable users to protect their data and privacy with a connection established through the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. The digital certificate remain valid for as long as the user needs a secure session, which could range from a span of minutes to months. A key benefit of short-lived certificates is that the fast expiration makes using a compromised certificate for an attack less likely. "Most communication lacks encryption. The solution is simple: to give an identity to everything. Beame.io and GlobalSign are returning the control of identifying credentials to the hands of the user," says Beame.io's CEO, Zeev Glozman. Beame.io makes it possible to assign hostnames to mobile devices and issue them matching short-lived GlobalSign SSL certificates. This provides secure, time-limited, global access to credentials or information. Beame.io allows for the creation and management of a private, secure application network on-demand, preventing unauthorized connections at the network layer. Beame.io provides proof of possession of a unique cryptographic key used together with multi-factor authentication, allowing application and device developers to easily implement asymmetric credentialing for end-to-end encryption anywhere.
