Over half a decade, Oberon microsystems has focused on support for Apple’s HomeKit protocol – and has been the initial contributor to Apple’s open source HomeKit ADK (Accessory Development Kit) on GitHub.
To achieve the highest degree of security in home automation, Apple HomeKit relies on advanced cryptographic algorithms. The algorithms chosen by Apple are best known for their use on high-performance servers. On the low-cost, resource-constrained microcontrollers that are more typical for home automation, implementation of these algorithms is a major challenge. The ocrypto library is the best-in-class implementation of the cryptographic functions needed for HomeKit – and for many other kinds of IoT devices. Thanks to its outstanding software, Oberon microsystems has become one of the key partners of Apple in the HomeKit ecosystem, along with accessory and semiconductor manufacturers:
ocrypto has been developed over many years, and is continuously being further improved, by our seasoned Swiss engineering team. Our goal is to make your products secure, even on low-cost hardware.
