Security from Concept to Production
Creating a secure product requires a full set of security solutions. Let Renesas guide you through the design and implementation of a secure, connected application, from basic security concepts, to advanced topics such as key handling and cloud connectivity, and finally mass production and secure firmware updates.
Unique MCU Features
Unique MCU Features
Renesas’s unique approach to security is based on the principle that security needs to be built into the MCU, to provide an inseparable hardware Root of Trust.
- Integrated secure element functionality
- Tamper resistance
- Unlimited secure key storage
- Hardware cryptographic acceleration
- SPA/DPA resistance
- Isolation technologies including Arm® TrustZone®
- Device Lifecycle Management
See the product Family pages for specific features of each device:
Security certifications inspire confidence in Renesas’s security offerings. These certifications are often mandatory for applications in regulated industries. They can also be leveraged for end-product certification.
Renesas strives to offer solutions and tools that give engineers the freedom to innovate and differentiate, and still meet aggressive development schedules. Use them out-of-the-box, or tailor them as needed. See the Documentation and Downloads sections below for these solutions and more!
Secure Key Installation
Prevent cloning, IP theft, and infrastructure compromise.
Secure Boot, Secure Firmware Updates
Keep deployed products up to date and protected against the latest security threats.
Protect data and infrastructure, including internet and cloud connectivity.

Software & Tool Pages
|Security Key Management Tool||Solution Toolkit||A command-line tool for encrypting the RA family SCE's Protected Mode, DLM keys, Synergy SCE, or the encryption required when using the RX / RE / RZ family TSIP.||Renesas|
|Flexible Software Package (FSP)||Software Package||FSP is an enhanced software package designed to provide easy-to-use, scalable, high-quality software for embedded system designs using Renesas RA Family of Arm Microcontrollers.
Note: FSP with e² studio Installer (Platform Installer) will install the e² studio tool, FSP packs, GCC toolchain and Segger J-Link drivers required to use this software. No additional installations are required.
|Trusted Secure IP Driver||Security / Crypto||Trusted Secure IP driver software: this software supports AES with 128- and 256-bit keys), AES-GCM, AES-CMAC, and random number generation. Safely executes AES key management, secure updating of firmware, and secure booting at high speeds.||Renesas|
|e² studio||IDE and Coding Tool||Eclipse-based Renesas integrated development environment (IDE).
[Support MCU/MPU: RA, RE, RX, RL78, RH850, Renesas Synergy, RZ]
(Note: You need to install compiler separately as an additional software)
(Note: No separate e² studio installation required for RA FSP, this will be installed as part of the FSP with e² studio installer (Platform Installer) on GitHub.)
