Digitalization of critical infrastructures:
Highest security with TLS over LoRaWAN™

PHYSEC’s patented LoRaWAN+TLS solution enables secure communication in the Internet of Things for operators of critical infrastructures and public utilities


LoRa­WAN is a Low Power Wide Area Net­work spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on for wire­less bat­te­ry powe­red sys­tems in a regio­nal, natio­nal or even glo­bal net­work. LoRa­WAN aims at the most important requi­re­ments of the Inter­net of Things (IoT), e.g. bidi­rec­tio­n­al com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on, loca­liz­a­ti­on and mobi­li­ty of ser­vices. TLS over LoRa­WAN is a simp­le soft­ware exten­si­on that on the one hand fixes known vul­nera­bi­li­ties and on the other hand offers WAN-com­pa­ti­ble end-to-end secu­ri­ty accord­ing to TR-03116–3.


Paten­ted and uni­que:
BSI-com­pli­ant WAN secu­ri­ty in accord­ing to TR-03116–3.

Deve­lo­ped on basis of field tests for smart mete­ring, smart grid and cri­ti­cal infra­st­ruc­tures.

Inte­gra­ted solu­ti­on from the infra­st­ruc­tu­re to the plat­form to the app­li­ca­ti­on.

What are we offering?

  • The ful­ly-auto­ma­tic data trans­mis­si­on via radio eli­mi­na­tes manu­al pro­ces­ses and hel­ps you to save cos­ts
  • Hig­hest secu­ri­ty through paten­ted and BSI pre­fer­red TLS encryp­ti­on
  • Due to the licen­se-free radio tech­no­lo­gy LoRa­WAN™ the­re are no addi­tio­nal trans­mis­si­on cos­ts
  • Always up-to-date sen­sor infor­ma­ti­on enab­les you to moni­tor and con­trol the net­works effi­ci­ent­ly
  • Data Pri­va­cy: DSGVO com­pli­ant

The benefits of our solution

  • easy: No exten­si­ve trai­ning of your ser­vice per­son­nel necessa­ry, authen­ti­ca­ti­on and key estab­li­shing via smart­pho­ne app during instal­la­ti­on on site
  • safe: Ter­mi­nal device and ser­ver soft­ware veri­fy their mutu­al iden­ti­ty with cer­ti­fi­ca­tes
  • com­ple­te con­trol: You retain data sov­er­eig­n­ty, neit­her end device nor soft­ware manu­fac­tu­rers mana­ge key mate­ri­al

Maximum security!

  • Paten­ted and in LoRa­WAN uni­que TLS encryp­ti­on pro­tects the con­fi­den­tia­li­ty and authen­ti­ci­ty of your sen­sor and actua­tor data
  • Matu­re tech­no­lo­gy through the use of estab­lis­hed cryp­to stan­dards enab­les a high level of secu­ri­ty
  • Your net­work will also be secu­re in the future, thanks to con­stant fur­ther deve­lo­p­ments and updates


How our solution works

  • The­re are no spe­cial infra­st­ruc­tu­re requi­re­ments to use our encryp­ti­on and plat­form inte­gra­ti­on. Any LoRa­WAN net­work can be used for this pur­po­se.
  • The addi­tio­nal TLS secu­ri­ty lay­er is based on the LoRa­WAN pro­to­col without chan­ging it. Thus the sys­tem is 100% LoRa­WAN com­pli­ant. We use the cryp­to­gra­phy that is desi­red and part­ly requi­red by the BSI for WAN/Internet com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on.
  • The LoRaWAN+TLS solu­ti­on thus mea­sur­a­b­ly redu­ces the risk of IT secu­ri­ty incidents/IT dis­rup­ti­ons.
  • Here we show you the next steps. Start the way to your own LoRa­WAN infra­st­ruc­tu­re!

    For users: You are loo­king for sup­port with your LoRa­WAN™ infra­st­ruc­tu­re, with the imple­men­ta­ti­on of a pilot app­li­ca­ti­on or would you like fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on?
    For device manu­fac­tu­rers: You want to extend your pro­duct for LoRa­WAN™ with our free TLS stack?
    For plat­form pro­vi­ders: You offer a LoRaWAN™-capable IoT plat­form and want to achie­ve BSI-com­pli­ant WAN secu­ri­ty with our midd­le­wa­re IoTree®?
