Here is what Internet of Things (IoT) devices need to perform cryptographic authentication
In our ever-connected world
where most connected devices are not being built with security in mind, as many
IoT device manufacturers lack the funding, expertise, and awareness to properly
implement it, it is clear that, hardware-based
embedded security solutions play an important role.
In effect, IoT devices need a trusted platform, like an
Embedded Secure Element (eSE),
Trusted Execution Environment (TEE),
or Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to
perform cryptographic authentication.
For those who are unfamiliar, each platform performs security-critical
functions and provides Roots of Trust (RoT), which are critical components to
security architecture and allow for efficiently deployed and managed data
protection across the entire data life cycle.
TPM chips can be ideal for combating IoT security challenges.
Vendors producing TPM chips include Atmel, Broadcom, Infineon, Nuvoton, and
