Sixscape Communications is a Singapore based start-up that focuses on next generation crypto-based secure communications solutions based on PKI and Sixscape’s proprietary IRP (Identity Registration Protocol). Co-founded in 2014 as an R&D initiative by Lawrence Hughes, the Co-founder of CipherTrust, Inc., (acquired by Secure Computing for USD273M in 2006) and is now a commercial entity and leader in crypto security.
Sixscape has developed a number of authentication and communication products based on two new Internet protocols which were evaluated and approved by Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA). These protocols, as a platform enable secure authentication and provide true End2End direct secure communications for users, M2M and IoT devices to register and discover each other easily. These new technologies are becoming the cutting edge of network applications and are creating a huge market potential in cryptographic authentication applications and solutions that support the growth of M2M and IoT applications and leverage market drivers such as 5G.
Sixscape was one of the 9 finalists from 280 applicants in the Innotribe Startup Challenge 2014 globally and the winner of Mondato Mobile Financial Services Startup of the Year for 2014. The company secured a grant of S$0.5million from Spring Singapore as its seed funding followed by series A funding from Singapore’s ICTfund and the National Research Foundation.
Sixscape provides a security platform which simplifies the issuing of digital certs for strong authentication and encryption. Together with Sixscape’s client apps, we make use of digital certs as digital identities for users to provide strong authentication, secure communication such as encrypted email, password-less web and app authentication, secure chat, secure file transfer, and document signing applications.
These products are enabled by our Identity Registration Protocol (IRP) platform which has been awarded Port#4604 by the Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA). Our security platform also enables strong IoT security by automating the process of issuing a digital identity to every device without having any manual processes, allowing security at scale while maintaining a low payload between IoT devices.
