The company said in a release, “Secure Thingz has announced enhancements to the secure development tools C-Trust and Embedded Trust, as well as the secure prototyping and production platform Secure Deploy, delivering enhanced protection of applications based on the NXP LPC55S6x MCU family featuring Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) technology for secure storage.”

The use of unique securely managed identities enables organizations to protect their investment in intellectual property (IP) through tight control of provisioning credentials, both to control production quantities and prevent cloning, it said. The unique security tools from IAR Systems and Secure Thingz combined with Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) technology from NXP offer strong IoT security implementation through a combination of hardware and software-based protection, it added.

The Root of Trust and assets managed by Secure Thingz solutions for the LPC55S6x MCU family are encrypted during provisioning using the PUF as a key vault, which is used to protect secret credentials and keys. This process helps prevent application code or malware from accessing, modifying or impinging on the Root of Trust or assets. Furthermore, the process is uniquely tied to the device offering protection against cloning or counterfeiting.

“The need for unique device management, updates, and secure supply chains have been highlighted by the recent US Cybersecurity Improvement Act, alongside the EN 303 645 standard”, said Haydn Povey, CEO, Secure Thingz. “Through our longstanding relationship with NXP, we are making the security implementation easier for every embedded developer and every application by utilizing even more of the secure capabilities offered in the NXP LPC55S6x MCU family.”

IAR Systems is a platinum member of the NXP Partner Program, a global network of engineering companies collaborating with NXP to bring exceptional software, tools, training and services, and ultimately speed time to market.
