Espressif reinforces its dedication to ensuring the security and integrity of data transmitted by devices equipped with ESP32-C3.

Espressif Systems, a leading provider of wireless systems-on-chip (SoCs) and modules for the Internet of Things (IoT) is proud to announce that its ESP32-C3 and ESP8685 series have had their CLS-Ready certification completed. This demonstrates Espressif's commitment to robust cybersecurity standards in IoT devices.

ESP32-C3, a powerful and energy-efficient SoC, has gained recognition for its versatility and performance in a wide range of IoT applications. With the above-mentioned certification, Espressif reinforces its dedication to ensuring the security and integrity of data transmitted by devices equipped with ESP32-C3.

The CLS-Ready certification is tremendously rigorous and is conducted by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA), a leading authority in cybersecurity. This certification ensures that ESP32-C3 adheres to the industry's best practices and complies with the necessary security requirements for operating securely in a connected environment. The CLS-Ready certification also covers a comprehensive set of requirements, including cryptography, secure boot, and secure update mechanisms, which ensure that devices are protected against a variety of cyber threats. 

Furthermore, the CLS-Ready certification functions as a complement to the Cybersecurity Labelling Scheme (CLS). This allows CLS-Ready products to leverage the security functionality provided by CLS-Ready-certified platforms and, therefore, meet the CLS Level 4 requirements. As a result, smart-product manufacturers may focus on end-device functionality, rather than investing heavily into developing the cybersecurity aspects of these devices in the first place.

Espressif is committed to delivering cutting-edge IoT solutions with a strong emphasis on security. The CLS-Ready certification for ESP32-C3 is a testament to our dedication to providing our customers with the highest level of security in their connected devices. ESP32-C3 has been built to provide an affordable security solution to all and, thus, integrates a variety of security features, such as Secure Boot, Flash Encryption, Protecting Debug Interfaces, Secure Storage, Memory Protection, and Device Identity protection.
