Right sizing the SoC security architecture for the new connected world
By Bart Stevens,
Director of Product Management, Mobile and Networking Hardware Security Solutions,
Mobile, Wearable and IoT devices introduce new and unique security challenges that must be addressed to enable secure mobility; transactions, secure browsing, and communications. , ranging from software that can run on existing platforms to embedded tamper-resistant hardware IPs.
To help SoC developers choose the right security solution based on business requirements, this session will explain current security threats and provide an overview of available security technologies. Specifically:
- Understand which level of security is required: (protected, trusted, secure) and choose the appropriate security certification
- Select only the functions needed based on the device profile & use cases to limit the impacts on power consumption, performance and cost
- Show/demonstrate the tools to manage and provision properly the security during the entire device life cycle.
Real world cases will be presented to show how to make smart security decisions that lead to an optimal balance between security, cost and performance.
