End-to-end LoRa security solution provides secure key provisioning

End-to-end LoRa security solution provides secure key provisioning
As the LoRa (Long Range) technology ecosystem accelerates, security remains an area for improvement in the market due to vulnerabilities that leave the network and application server keys accessible in the memory of modules and microcontrollers (MCUs) paired with a LoRaWAN stack. If keys are accessed in a LoRaWAN device, a hacker can impersonate it and authorise fraudulent transactions, which can result in a scalable attack with substantial losses in service revenue, recovery costs and brand equity.
