Secure Thingz Collaborates with NXP Semiconductors to Enable Enhanced Protection of Connected Devices
May 18, 2021
Secure Thingz, an IAR Systems Group company, announced enhancements to the secure development tools C-Trust and Embedded Trust.
Secure Thingz also announced the secure prototyping and production platform Secure Deploy, designed to deliver suitable protection of applications based on the NXP LPC55S6x MCU family featuring Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) technology for secure storage. .
Secure Thingz delivers a secure supply chain solution through the security development tools Embedded Trust and C-Trust, which are integrated with the development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench, and the secure prototyping and production platform Secure Deploy. The Root of Trust and assets managed by Secure Thingz solutions for the LPC55S6x MCU family are encrypted during provisioning using the PUF as a key vault, which is used to protect secret credentials and keys. This process helps prevent application code or malware from accessing, modifying, or impinging on the Root of Trust or assets. Furthermore, the process is tied to the device offering protection against cloning or counterfeiting.
In NXP’s whitepaper Extend MCU Security Capabilities Beyond Trusted Execution, there is more information about NXP’s approach to crypto acceleration and asset protection that help bring high levels of security to low-cost microcontrollers with minimal power and area penalty.
IAR Systems is a platinum member of the NXP Partner Program, a global network of engineering companies collaborating with NXP to bring exceptional software, tools, training and services, and ultimately speed time to market.
