Kudelski IoT Secure IP Boosts Hardware Security for Semiconductor Manufacturers


Kudelski IoT has launched its Secure IP portfolio, providing semiconductor manufacturers with strong cryptographic capabilities when integrated into their system-on-chip (SoC) products.

Businesses benefit from a rich suite of security services, which are more powerful built into hardware than software, while enabling compliance with the most common industry security standards, including NIST, FIPS, PSA and SESIP level 3 or higher.

“Silicon hardware-based security offers better protection against manipulation and interference than its software counterpart because it is more difficult to modify or attack the physical device or data entry points,” Michela explained. Menting, Director of Digital Security Research at ABI Research. Kudelski IoT Secure IP is a hardware-based security enclave that provides SoCs with key features such as a robust, high-quality true random number generator, secure key storage, robust cryptographic algorithms, and attack countermeasures. by side channel (SCA, DPA) and default attacks (DFA). With a smaller footprint than the competition, it both saves space in SoC designs and is more power efficient.

Secure IP also enables SoC manufacturers, device manufacturers, and end users to access services and features that ensure the longevity and cost-effectiveness of devices and solutions. These features include remote feature authorization, secure over-the-air firmware updates, advanced data encryption to ensure privacy, and contactless or field provisioning to ensure secure and scalable operations.

“In an environment where regulations around IoT security are rapidly growing and evolving, one thing is already clear: industry-leading security and robustness are becoming essential features in almost all component and device designs.” , said Andreas Thiel, Head of Product Centers at u-blox. “Kudelski has been a great security partner helping us embed security at the core of our products so we can enable the services we believe will power the next generation of chipsets and modules for our business.”

“We are seeing an increase in regulation and demand for security in nearly every IoT market, ranging from consumer IoT to automotive, industrial, telecom, medical and asset tracking,” said Frederic Thomas, CTO of Kudelski IoT. “We anticipate that regulations will require hardware IP in most SoC designs in the future, and with this launch we are giving silicon manufacturers a head start in preparing for the next wave of demand.”

Kudelski IoT is uniquely positioned as a leader in this emerging space with its more than 30 years of hardware security expertise, protecting the high-value pay-TV business with advanced content protection technologies and services. and encryption decoder security management. Kudelski’s portfolio includes IP covering everything from cellular devices requiring the highest levels of security to IP for size/cost limited devices requiring PSA or SESIP Level 3 certification. Kudelski IoT enables manufacturers of semi -drivers to easily integrate its Secure IP blocks with SoC lifecycle support, such as JTAG and Secure Debug capabilities, and Secure Boot support using only a very small footprint.

Kudelski IoT offers a complete offer to integrate security throughout the value chain and is not limited to providing the security enclave itself. Through the services of the Kudelski Lab IoT Center of Excellence, the company also provides additional tools and services to SoC and device manufacturers to manage the SoC and device lifecycle, including threat analysis and risk assessments (TARA), review of security design and architecture, SoC and device assessment for certification pre-assessment (SESIP Level 3, CSPN).

Secure IP can be used in combination with Kudelski IoT keySTREAM to manage the device lifecycle and provide a fully secure chip-to-cloud experience for its customers. This includes customization, factory and field key provisioning, secure firmware updates and attestation, from IoT solution design to refurbishment. Therefore, Kudelski IoT fully supports the creation of secure and sustainable products that protect new business models, corporate reputation and regulatory compliance.
