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!
