Protect your embedded software from cybersecurity vulnerabilities

A single cybersecurity vulnerability can leave embedded systems defenseless to data breaches, cyberattacks, and other cyber incidents.
For that reason, it is important to know how to implement software features properly to ensure that your embedded systems are secure.

Embedded security

Thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), more and more devices are connected to the Internet. IoT embedded devices are everywhere nowadays: in offices, industrial environments and even in the healthcare sector. However, because these devices are connected to the network, if they lack substantial security features, they can be a significant security risk by creating vulnerabilities within an organization’s network.

With our expertise and consulting services, we help our customers avoid the inherent vulnerabilities of these devices, allowing your business to take advantage of their many benefits, with minimal risk. 

Secure Boot / Chain of Trust

Ensure your device is not running tampered software by verifying its authenticity before execution. Establish software authenticity all the way from the bootloader to user applications. Our secure boot services help implement:

  • Verified bootloader (NXP i.MX / QorIQ, Qualcomm Snapdragon, TI Sitara, Atmel SAMA5, Xilinx Zynq and more)
  • Kernel verification (FIT image, SoC specific mechanisms)
  • Root filesystem verification (dm-verity, IMA/EVM, FIT image)
  • Filesystem cryptography, Filesystem-level encryption (dm-crypt)

Device Encryption and Secure Key Storage

You can protect IP and sensitive user information by encrypting data/software.
It is also critical to protect the key used for encryption using a secure storage mechanism. Additionally, software that handles confidential data should run from within a hardware/software-isolated environment. We provide solutions and services that span:

  • Anti-cloning (IP and Data Protection)
  • Key Management and secure key storage
  • Data protection using encryption — In use, in motion, and at rest
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
  • Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) using Arm TrustZone and OP-TEE
  • Device identity and authentication
