Designing Robust Security Options for Embedded Systems
Embedded devices have traditionally had limited security features. The small size of most embedded devices prevents extensive security features from being implemented, which is a big problem for Enterprise System OEMs who require data be rendered unreadable in the advent of a security breach. With Enterprise System OEMs, the host system must maintain ultimate control over security algorithms. This white paper introduces SiliconSystems' embedded security solution called SiliconDrive Secure. With SiliconDrive Secure, application data and software IP are tied to a specific drive, which means the host system can verify the drive and create unique encryption keys to prevent theft.
