Device Attestation Certificate CommScope Expertise DAC Provisioning Solutions

CSA Matter will improve consumer experiences with easy home network configuration and robust smart home cybersecurity. Matter sets a new level of rigor for IOT device security using advanced PKI algorithms to create a secure, open standard. Device developers need access to robust Matter PKI processes to meet the Matter security requirements and have a Matter Device Attestation Certificate (DAC) securely provisioned on each device.

What is a Matter Device Attestation Certificate (DAC)?

A Matter DAC is a device identity that is used to verify the device origin and to encrypt communications. Verifying the device origin prevents counterfeit devices and malicious elements from joining a Matter network. Encrypting communications secures device-to-device and device-to-cloud communications so that consumer data and privacy are protected. The Matter Device Attestation procedure uses a secure chain-of-trust using PKI processes. The CSA assigns the status of Product Attestation Authority (PAA) to select security certificate authority organizations that demonstrate a rigorous level of security processes, and CommScope Sentry is a Matter PAA organization.
