Madjid Nakhjiri has the duty for end to get rid of roadmap, architecture, in addition to future technology solutions for Samsung ARTIK system security. Madjid is also an associate of executive panel for IOT security foundation. Ahead of Samsung, he initiated and brought Safety Engineering team for MediaTek IOT company unit and led security style of following generation chipsets. Madjid has already been involved with IOT standards since 2011 and contains over 15 years of encounter in security architecture and specifications, chairing and authoring for most industry standards routines in IOT, IPTV/DRM, Web mobility, and wi-fi connectivity, and intelligent cards and contains authored and delivered many trusted standards. He is the writer of book “AAA and security for Mobile Networks”, several conference papers, 18 issued patents and 20+ pending.
Madjid can be an expert in public crucial infrastructure and factory and industry provisioning of identities credentials and personalization of products and has spent years in your community of device and consumer authentication and related key administration schemes for both mobile Web connectivity and assistance authorization. He was among pioneers in your community of heterogeneous seamless network flexibility and the IETF focus on the overlap of mobility and safety that was the foundation for cellular-WiFi interoperability within mid-2000s.
On joining IOTA
I strongly believes in the guarantee of distributed and decentralized ledger technologies as a consensus layer for establishing believe in between manufacturers and program operators and also individual gadgets and proccesses. Distributed ledger technologies will not only have the ability to connect rely on silos from traditional PKI identification and key systems, but additionally will be able to give a provenance of these devices identity legacy through its lifestyle cycle, since it moves from manufacturing plant life to product sales and distribution to deployment and system onboarding. IOTA is really a promising technologies that is trying to resolve both scalability and security conditions that would occur from employing traditional blockchain technology and protocols to IOT
Having Madjid join the building blocks being an expert advisor on Personal Key Infrastructure is incredibly very important to us. He will serve an essential role in the ‘Identification of Items’(IDoT) efforts. Our discussions so far has demonstrated an excellent alignment in both concepts, but also the importance to getting this right.. His prolonged dedication to security in identification and digital systems will undoubtedly be of great worth to the project. We have been excited to explore and begin building with this fundamental ingredient to create IoT protected and IOTA’s m2m vision possible. Give him a hot welcome!
