NB-IoT security features
3GPP/GSMA Security Protocols
NB IoT has passed security protocols by 3GPP/GMSA the organisations responsible for managing mobile networks globally.
Fully managed and standardised
NB-IoT is part of the mobile network with fully managed standardized security guaranteeing the integrity of all data running through it
The Telecommunication company provides a dedicated VPN for further security and reliability.
RSA Chipset Security
The NB IoT module chipset included in our smart locks applies 2048 bit RSA encryption
IPSEC security layer
Between the telco's mobile network, and the IoT device management platform, a layer of Internet Protocol Security (IPSEC) is provided.
HTTP military grade encryption
All communications are running on HTTPs military grade 256 bit encryption between all the vertical applications

Mobile Network Operators have re-engineered security for IoT devices with a multilayered approach to provide defences across the entire device end-to-end solution.
Get protection against current threats
Mobile Operators restrict the communication from NB-IoT devices to specific servers
This restriction measure means a compromised device will be unable to communicate with any other destination, thus limiting any potential threat
These restrictions are implemented using a whitelist of IP addresses, IP address ranges or URLs.
Secure communication channels
Mobile operators ensure that customer/user data is encrypted while travelling across their own infrastructure
For data traversing the internet, mobile operators provide and manage secure connections using virtual private networks (VPNs) and secure private, access point names (APNs)
Mobile operators help device manufacturers keep their data communications isolated from other traffic.
NB-IoT is the only IoT licenced spectrum
As regulated entities with spectrum licensees, mobile operators have to comply with a range of requirements established by the regulatory authorities in the markets in which they operate.
In most countries, mobile operators now have long track records of keeping their networks secure, building trust among regulators, governments and policymakers.
