WISeKey's Identity tech used with digital license plates

10/02/21

WISeKey International Holding, a leading cybersecurity IoT, AI company, today announced that its advanced digital security solutions provide drones with remote IDs to comply with the new tracking and safety regulations put in place by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the U.S.

The FAA has finalized a new rule that requires remote identification (remote ID) for drones also known as digital license plates. This rule becomes effective on March 16, 2021 and applies to all drones weighing more than 0.55 pounds, so it includes recreational and commercial drones.

Manufacturers will have 18 months (until September 2022) to begin producing drones with remote IDs, and operators will have until September 2023, to fully comply with the FAA regulation requiring remote IDs for all drones operating in the U.S.

WISeKey's VaultIC4xx series of secure elements offers reliable solutions to secure and prove the drone's digital identity, and at the same time protect data and firmware against compromise when stored in the drone or in transit. This guarantees a secure connection between the controller and the drone. WISeKey's VaultIC4xx secure elements are certified by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) following FIPS140-2 Level 3 standard, one of the strongest and globally recognized digital security levels. These are developed on Common Criteria EAL5+ certified hardware, another government grade security certification.
