WISeKey collaborates with IATA on the ONE Record platform as security and digital identity partner
WISeKey International Holding Ltd, a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company, announced that it was selected by International Air Transport Association (IATA) as its technology partner to secure the ONE Record test platform.
The WISeKey & IATA collaboration for the ONE Record platform aims to define the security layer to protect all data exchanges in the platform, by introducing the necessary technology components for strong authentication and data encryption. WISeKey will provide this security layer by leveraging its Managed PKI Services, allowing the issuance of trusted digital identities under its worldwide recognized Root of Trust, adopting the best practices in secure identity management and enhancing IATA’s ONE Record platform to securely provide paperless processes and creating a plug-and-play environment where companies can connect and re-connect their digital relations with ease, security and trust.
WISeKey’s technology integration into the IATA ONE Record platform accelerates the Know Your Customer (KYC) process for stakeholders participating in the platform, and WISeKey’s trusted digital certificates to secure P2M (people to machine) and M2M (machine to machine) interactions allow ONE Record operations to be executed within a trusted ecosystem.
At the heart of WISeKey’s solution is the WISeKey-OISTE Root Certification Authority, serving as a common trust anchor, which is recognized by operating systems (OS) and applications to ensure the authenticity, confidentiality and integrity of on-line transactions. WISeKey’s Trust Services fulfil all the accreditations required to issue digital certificates to individuals, businesses, governmental bodies and interconnected objects worldwide. The OISTE Foundation is the owner of the Root of Trust, is regulated by Swiss law to enforce values to protect the Neutrality and Sovereignty of the data and identities and was created by the WISeKey Founders. The OISTE Foundation is a not for profit organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, regulated by article 80 et seq. of the Swiss Civil Code. OISTE is an organization in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC) and belongs to the Not-for-Profit constituency (NPOC) of the ICANN.

It is also a requirement where we must work with qualified and experienced solution providers, both for the advice on the design of the security layer, but also in the provision of a test platform. WISeKey meets this requirement and we are delighted to work with this experienced and trusted company.”
