As more devices become connected the need for safe and secure communications that protect our data and our identities is paramount. Intel EPID provides authentication, allowing a service provider to verify that an end user belongs to a group authorized to access the service. It also helps protect end-user privacy, enabling them to receive the service without revealing their identity (they cannot be traced by the service provider).

"Microchip has long recognized the importance of security in IoT applications," said Ian Harris, vice president of Microchip’s Computing Products Group. "Collaborating with Intel to integrate its proven Intel EPID technology demonstrates Microchip’s steadfast commitment to providing the very best IoT solutions, by working to enable designers with the safe and secure interoperation of their ‘things’ with Intel’s devices, gateways and servers."

"By utilizing Intel EPID technology, Microchip’s customers can maintain end-to-end security and privacy in their IoT products and services, which helps them to protect data from device to cloud, minimizes unauthorized access of endpoints and gateways, and will promote a common security framework for IoT platforms," said Lorie Wigle, general manager of Internet of Things Security at Intel.
