Most of the time electronics devices manufacturing is outsourced throughout the world. In this context, software IP protection becomes a major concern.
How to make MCU-based devices supply chain and manufacturing more secure by protecting developer software IP, thus avoiding counterfeited parts and overproduction?
As a part of its to-security offering Trusted Objects has developed tops (Trusted Objects Programming Services) to bring an answer to these critical challenges with security solutions protecting high-value software content on microcontroller-based electronic devices.
tops offer includes tops plug&go and tops server.
tops plug&go is adapted for each dedicated project, which means for a given type of programming machine and a given type of MCU.
tops plug&go provides a full range of services:
Secure channel between the software IP owner and the programming facility,
Secure storage of the software IP at the programming facility (uncontrolled environment),
Secure programming up to the MCU in standalone mode (no external server).
Beyond secure programming, tops plug&go also provides:
Secure generation of secret data: unique password, secret keys, certificates,
Secure provisioning: keys and certificates injection into the MCU,
Secure commissioning of the application server,
Signed batch report to control the number of programmed devices.
For each dedicated project, Trusted Objects experts carry out the solution adaptation and the installation support. The solution is cost-effective, easy to install and easy to operate with a user-friendly interface.
tops plug&go services are built according to the highest security standards, including Common Criteria, FIPS and ISO27000 series.
