The secure boot
and secure key storage with tamper detection capabilities establish a hardware root of trust.
- Secure boot
to ensure that the device boots in a secure state
The X-Ware uLoadXL secure boot
and secure firmware update solution anchors the product root of trust, authenticating and integrity checking the X-Ware-based system application.
In vehicles the secure boot
and integrity check is performed in two levels.
The i.MX 7 processor also includes many additional security features such as secure boot
, cryptographic acceleration and tamper detection, which are of high value for the IoT market.
For example, Windows 10 offers Secure Boot
, a combination of technologies that protect against rootkits, software tools that enable unauthorized users to gain control of computer systems without detection, and other low-level malware.
' prevents unauthorised boot-loaders and kernels from being loaded onto the device.
The Arria 10 SoCs offer a processor with rich feature set of embedded peripherals, hardened floating-point variable-precision digital signal processing blocks, high-speed transceivers, hard memory controllers, Secure boot
capability, using Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm and Advanced Encryption Standard, and protocol intellectual property controllers all in a single highly integrated package.
Other, less glaring examples include devices without secure boot
or allowing unauthenticated remote firmware updates.
Other features that need to be included are secure boot
, secure firmware updates, intrusion detection, endpoint firewall, and a management agent for integration with the IT security management system.
Also, starting with the root of trust, each stage of DTEK50's secure boot
chain must first verify that the next component is fully intact before proceeding, ensuring the device has not been tampered with since the last restart.
