In recent years, the creation of new added value for the Internet of Things (IoT) has been gaining attention. On the other hand, since IoT devices connect to the Internet, they are exposed to risks such as eavesdropping, tampering, and viruses, and such harmful incidents are also seeing an increase in number. Consequently, the demand for security features is increasing for devices that previously didn't need them.

How RX Security Solutions Counter Threats

RX security solutions implement Root of Trust for IoT devices using encryption by key data that is protected by a strong Trusted Secure IP, and a memory-protected authentication program. By implementing security functions using an RX microcontroller (MCU), you can easily and strongly protect IoT devices against threats.

Security Function

Secure updating:

Authentication for program updating detects and prevents tampering

Secure boot:

Authentication for program execution detects and prevents tampering

Security Hardware

Security hardware implementing Root of Trust
