Embedded Toolbox: Secure IP through Production with Secure Thingz? Secure Desktop Provisioner

December 15, 2020


In the previous two installments of the secure development series, Shawn Prestridge from IAR Systems took us step-by-step through the process of protecting your IP and creating secure and encrypted applications using the C-TRUST extension of IAR Embedded Workbench.

In Part 3, Shawn helps us transition from the development environment and into production by creating fully-encrypted, trusted application packages within IAR Embedded Workbench that can be securely transmitted to contract manufacturers (even by email) to help prevent IP theft and mismanagement. He then goes on to import the trusted application package into the Secure Desktop Provisioner from Secure Thingz, an IAR Systems subsidiary. Going a step further, the Secure Desktop Provisioner allows developers to take low-volume production into their own hands by securely programming and provisioning the application onto a set number of targets.

Tune in to learn how you can achieve both in less than 10 minutes using the secure development suite from IAR and Secure Thingz.
