The rising interest in solutions for trusted computing is largely driven by the potentially severe economic consequences of failing to ensure security in embedded applications. Making an embedded product safe from malicious attacks has consequences for hardware and software design, as well as the physical attributes of the design. ARM is enabling system security by integrating protective measures into the heart of its cores and providing secure software to complement the efforts of semiconductor manufacturers, product OEMs and operating system partners.
