Press Release: WISeKey to Launch its First Ever Non-Fungible Token (NFT) from Space

05/04/2021 | 12:00pm EDT
 
   WISeKey to Launch its First Ever Non-Fungible Token (NFT) from Space 
 
   PocketPod deployer developed by FOSSA Systems will launch in June 2021 
aboard a Falcon 9 rocket by SpaceX. 
 
   Through the WISeSat constellation, set to launch its first prototype 
satellites in December in 2021, WISeKey will enable the direct 
connection of satellites to IoT devices for NFT authentication, 
completing the connection cycle from space to device through a secure 
telecommunication means. The space based NFT ecosystem assures personal 
and secure authentication capabilities through the global WISeSat 
constellation developed in partnership with FOSSA Systems. 
 
   GENEVA, -- May 4th, 2021: WISeKey International Holding Ltd. ("WISeKey") 
(SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity, AI, 
Blockchain and IoT company, today announced that the Satellite PocketPod 
deployer developed by FOSSA Systems will launch in June 2021 aboard a 
Falcon 9 rocket by SpaceX. 
 
   This deployer contains various FOSSA customers' satellites that will be 
deployed in orbit as part of its launch brokerage services. In 
collaboration with WISeKey, a WISeKey semiconductors VaultIC secure 
element device is attached to the exterior of the deployer and will be 
exposed to space for a period of several weeks in Low Earth Orbit as a 
first demonstration of WISeKey's presence in the space-based WISe.SAT 
ecosystem. 
 
   FOSSA is launching this newly designed deployer to facilitate access to 
space and dispense future FOSSASAT-2E constellations into low earth 
orbit, assuring re-entry to avoid space debris after the operational 
life. 
 
   Through the WISeSat constellation WISeKey will enable the direct 
connection of satellites to IoT devices for NFT authentication, 
completing the connection cycle from space to device through a secure 
telecommunication means. The space based NFT ecosystem assures personal 
and secure authentication capabilities through the global WISeSat 
constellation developed in partnership with FOSSA Systems. 
 
   Earlier this year, WISeKey made a strategic investment in FOSSA Systems 
allowing their satellite technology to integrate into the WISeKey IoT 
platform connecting all IoT sectors through the development of a WISeSaT 
PocketQube Satellite. The WISeSaT.Satellite will be a security-IoT 
hardened FOSSASAT-2E satellite designed to further drive down satellite 
costs for the already-small Cubesat size. 
 
   WISeKey will offer this technology to its IoT clients in a SaaS model 
allowing both remote and redundant urban IoT communications for 
companies seeking to securely connect their assets. WISeKey Trust and 
Security solutions offer unique integration into an end-to-end platform 
that communicates in real-time with the WISeSat.Satellite by ensuring 
the authenticity, confidentiality, and integrity of the devices, objects, 
data and transactions. 
 
   WISeKey's INeS platform uses state-of-the-art cryptographic algorithms 
to meet the highest standards for issuing, managing, and validating 
digital credentials for IoT devices and now those connected with 
WISeSaT.Satellite.  This platform is scalable to support environments 
for hundreds of millions of devices. Additionally, INeS features Entity 
Management (any custom attributes such as identities, group, type, role, 
and life cycle), Message Security Policy Management, and Business Rules 
Management. Interfacing via the cloud and connecting devices and 
applications, INeS is capable of remotely identifying credentials and 
controlling activation, deactivation, revocation, renewal, and secure 
provisioning. 
 
   This solution can be used in multiple industrial applications to: 
optimize productivity across industries through predictive maintenance 
on equipment and machinery, create truly smart homes with connected 
appliances, and provide critical communication between devices including 
autonomous vehicles, self-driving cars and trucks and smart homes. The 
possibilities are endless. 
 
   Two initial dedicated demonstrators of WISeSaT.Satellite will be the 
first of a global constellation of to provide a high-performance with 
secure connectivity. WISeSAT utilizes the FOSSA PocketQube platform for 
dedicated constellations and low-cost in-orbit demonstration; this new 
competitive platform offers the fastest and easiest access to space on 
the market at disruptive costs.
