IQS Program

Labeling program dedicated to smart devices security

Two levels of labeling

IQS Standard integrates 25 security requirements whose application provides the labeled solution with first-level security against attacks.

IQS Advanced , for the most demanding solutions, reinforces the level of security through additional requirements.

The IQS Label

The "IoT Qualified as Secured" (IQS) labeling program is offered by digital.security to Internet of Things (IoT) players wishing to have the security of their IoT Solutions verified by an independent third party.

A security requirements standard adapted to the IoT

The IQS Label is awarded only to IoT Solutions that have demonstrated that they meet a set of published security requirements. It is a reliable indicator, making it possible to objectively inform future purchasers of IoT Solutions, individuals or professionals, about the security of connected objects and associated services available on the market.

Le référentiel d’exigences de sécurité du label IQS couvre les thématiques suivantes :

  • Data exchange protection (DEP)
  • Protection of technical bases (PTB)
  • Data Access Protection (DAP)
  • Traceability (TRA)

As part of the labeling program, the candidates also undertake to:

  • Ensure the maintenance in security conditions (MSC) of the connected solutions proposed on the market by publishing security patches according to conditions.
  • Have any claim for security measures additional to the requirements of the standard checked.
