Silex Insight is partnering with Crypto Quantique to create a new end-to-end IoT security solution.

The company’s eSecure Root-of-Trust IP module for SoCs, ASICs, and FPGAs is being offered with Crypto Quantique’s universal IoT security platform, QuarkLink. eSecure is a scalable and flexible security hardware IP that is compliant with most common industry standards, including NIST.

Per a company press release, features include secure boot, system integrity by ensuring execution of authenticated software, device authentication, cryptographic acceleration, and generation and storage of secure keys and secret information.

eSecure is complemented by Quarlink with provisioning secure firmware and cryptographic keys, automated secure onboarding to any platform or multiple platforms simultaneously; comprehensive security monitoring comprising firmware encryption; signing and secure updates over-the-air; and certificate and key renewal and revocation.

Additionally, it supports AWS, Microsoft and Mosquito cloud services.

The combination will allow for rapid, automated, and secure onboarding of IoT end-point devices to cloud-based or in-house servers.
