WISeKey, SA Key Developments

Bulgari and WISeKey Announce Strategic Partnership to Mitigate CyberSecurity Risk for its Customer Ecosystem

Bulgari and WiseKey announced a broadening of their partnership launched at Basel World 2015 with the announcement of the Intelligent Watch Diagono "E" Magnesium concept allowing Bulgari to more efficiently manage cybersecurity. Partnering with WISeKey, Bulgari offers an innovative solution combining a Luxury manufacture wristwatch to the most accurate digital security standards. The Diagono "E" Magnesium is the first wrist-vault, an intelligent luxury watch delivering full security storage for the owner's digital data. The Bulgari Diagono "E" Magnesium is the result of a partnership between Bulgari and WISeKey. In stark contrast with the producers of smartwatches, and even to the handful of traditional Swiss watch companies that have responded to them with their own "connected" timepieces, Bulgari has chosen to offer a high added-value luxury meaningful proposition. Diagono "E" Magnesium intelligent watch is powered by the self-winding manufacture caliber Solotempo (with a 28,800-vph frequency and a 42-hour power reserve), with the only electronic components being a cryptographic system embedded into the watch and equipped with WISeKey's NFCTrusted (Encrypted Near Field Communication) technology. This enables the watch to transmit a digital certificate to the "Bulgari Vault," an app that the owner downloads and sets up on his iOs or Android smartphone (with its own NFC chip). The owner then simply places the watch near the phone to activate and unlock the electronic vault and begin storing and using data. As soon as data is entered into the app, it is immediately encrypted with WISeKey's highly secure technology, so that only the wearer of the watch can have access and read them. Some of the uses for the technology would include using the watch to store and access pass codes, encrypted cloud data, make secure payments, activate an alarm system and video surveillance remotely, open car doors, access transport tickets, and various other possibilities. The extended partnership brings together cybersecurity technology and expert technical insight from WISeKey allowing Bulgari to fully understand and mitigate their customer's cybersecurity risk. WISeKey will develop for Bulgari a cyber-security platform facilitating the preparedness of each Bulgari client by providing to them with technologies that will drastically reduce their cyber risk when using the Internet. With virtually limitless applications to a number of verticals such as access control, payments, health services, Bulgari Hotel check-in, car activation etc. The Diagono "E" Magnesium intelligent watch using this unique secure wearable technology represents a huge value proposition to all Bulgari ecosystem customers.

WISeKey Launches NFC Trusted(R) Technology

WISeKey announced the launch of their NFCTrusted® technology as an evolution of the WISeAuthentic solution that WISeKey has deployed with luxury brands with over 1 million watches already digitally tagged and for which WISeKey has just obtained a US patent. NFCTrusted© can be embedded on a connected device without requiring device modification or app downloads. Embedding digital certificates based on WISeKey Public Key Infrastructure and OISTE Global Rootkey into NFC Trusted ® tags enables consumers to interact securely with nearly any IoT object or transactions on a trusted manner. NFCTrusted® authentication tags can incorporate a WISeKey cryptographically secure digital certificate to prove authenticity. NFC Trusted Tags can be embedded in virtually any product, piece of equipment or common household item, and users can verify authenticity with an NFC-enabled smart phone, watch, connected device or mobile device. This not only optimizes security and convenience, but also eliminates the need for special readers or other equipment for tag authentication and enables new use cases using proof of presence.
