Root-of-trust IP module to secure IoT applications

May 11, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Designed to turn ASIC and SoC designs into fully-secured IoT applications, Barco Silex' flexible eSecure IP module functions as a root-of-trust, guaranteeing the authenticity and integrity of the application’s hardware, software, data, and communication.

It offloads all security operations to hardware and scales according to the needs of the application. Its cryptographic engine supports all latest algorithms for TLS/DTLS 1.3, Thread Networking, Apple HomeKit, Bluetooth, ZigBee and more.

The heart of the eSecure module is a secure controller that enables full control over all security functions, especially those that shield the processor’s secrets such as encryption keys from the main applications running on the product. The module supports authentication of devices, firmware and application software, advanced anti-tampering features, protection against side-channel attacks, a secure storage interface, and a scalable cryptographic engine supporting symmetric and asymmetric operations.
