Recently, TÜV Rheinland Greater China (TÜV Rheinland), an internationally leading independent third-party testing, inspection, and certification organization, issued ETSI EN 303 645 IoT product cybersecurity and privacy protection standard certificate to Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2, which became the first product from the Mi Robot Vacuum Mop series to obtain certification from TÜV Rheinland based on the ETSI EN 303 645 standard.
The ETSI EN 303 645 standard, published in June 2020, was developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) in collaboration with relevant manufacturers, academia, and governments. It is designed to provide an effective basic assessment method to prevent cybercriminals from controlling global devices, launching DDoS attacks, or spying on users, and lower the risk of personal data breach. It assesses products from two aspects, namely cybersecurity regulations and data privacy protection provisions. With a focus on technical control and organizational measures, it deals with cybersecurity deficiencies and address primary cyberattacks that exploit cybersecurity weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
In the certification project, TÜV Rheinland conducted an overall evaluation of Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 through comprehensive design evaluation audit and relevant security verification in accordance with the cybersecurity regulations and privacy protection requirements of the ETSI EN 303 645 standard.
“I’m very happy to see that another product of Xiaomi has obtained cybersecurity certification. Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 has also officially been granted the ETSI EN 303 645 standard certificate by TÜV Rheinland. Xiaomi has always integrated the notion of protecting data security and privacy of every user across the world into the entire security development process, and adhered to the concept of ‘Privacy by Design’ and the principle of ‘Security by Default’. In the future, we will continue to work hard to create a more intelligent and secure IoT platform, “said Cui Baoqiu, Vice President of Xiaomi and Chairman of the Xiaomi Security and Privacy Committee.
“TÜV Rheinland and Xiaomi have maintained close communications and exchanges since 2017, and jointly contributed to the exploration and practice of safety standards in the industry, achieving fruitful results in the past five years. This time, Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 has obtained the ETSI EN 303 645 standard certificate from TÜV Rheinland, which testifies to both parties’ persistent pursuit of state-of-art and higher quality standards. In the future, TÜV Rheinland will continue to utilize its technical advantages in testing and certification, and rich experience in network information security to help Xiaomi with various product upgrades and technological innovations to provide better user experience,” said Frank Holzmann, Global Vice President of TÜV Rheinland Business Field Electrical.
The ETSI EN 303 645 standard is widely applicable to consumer IoT products such as children’s toys and baby monitors connected to the internet, smoke detectors, door locks, smart cameras, TVs and speakers, IoT gateways, wearables and smart home appliances. It can help increase consumers’ confidence in IoT product security.
