• Kudelski IoT Labs have met and exceeded all Amazon requirements to become part of an elite group of labs qualified to test Alexa Built-in devices.
• Increasing consumer privacy concerns for all connected devices make it critical for device manufacturers to get best in class validation of the level of security of their solution.
• Kudelski brings decades of device testing and certification expertise to implementers of Amazon Voice Services in speakers, headphones, vehicles and other connected devices.

These devices include speakers, headphones, vehicles, lighting, cameras, switches and other accessories and connected devices.

Between 2020 and 2023, the number of digital voice assistant-enabled devices is expected to double from 4.08 billion to 8 billion, according to Statista . Providing adequate, well-tested security of all connected products plays a key role in ensuring these products are successful and that customer demand for them is not impeded by privacy concerns. For this reason, Amazon has established a clear set of requirements to support manufacturers in securely implementing AVS. Key among these requirements is the need to engage an independent security expert to conduct an in-depth security review of each Alexa Built-in device that they must then submit to Amazon for certification.

For more than 20 years, Kudelski labs have been conducting security research, security assessments and security certifications of digital systems. Through thousands of evaluations, the labs have developed a wide range of evaluation techniques and capabilities in order to test both against current hacking methods as well as exceed the abilities of hackers by always being on the cutting edge. This ensures Kudelski’s clients release products that are secure and launch with security that is sustainable over the lifetime of the product.

"There is no doubt that adding a digital voice assistant to your product has huge benefits, but it must be done securely in order to prevent privacy issues and breaches of customer trust if hackers strike,” said Hardy Schmidbauer, SVP IoT for the Kudelski Group. “In reality, customers are becoming increasingly aware of security-related issues and are looking for products that guarantee the privacy and safety of their families, so we are happy to help implementers ensure that both their AVS integration as well as their entire IoT ecosystem are secure and robust against attack.”

“It is important to have both the right security expert within your company to establish secure design practices and an independent expert who can perform regular
security assessments on production devices,” said Amit Agrawal on Amazon’s Device Makers Blog . “We require device makers to submit a security assessment report before launch and every time there is a major change in the device software/firmware that triggers re-certification of your device.”

Kudelski IoT Labs provide services to support IoT device and ecosystem manufacturers throughout their entire product lifecycle. Services include Design Sprints, Threat Assessments, Device Design & Development, Security Architecture, Device & Ecosystem Security Assessments and ongoing Lifecycle Services. In addition, Kudelski IoT keySTREAM provides advanced security features like secure boot, zero-touch provisioning to cloud platforms, firmware over the air (FOTA) updates, end-to-end data encryption and command authentication.
