IAR Secure Supply Chain Solutions with Renesas Trusted Secure IP

IAR Systems and SecureThingz's security development tools,

  • Embedded Trust,
  • C-Trust, and
  • Secure Desktop Provisioner

provide comprehensive and secure supply chain solutions.

Renesas Trusted Secure IP securely stores the most important security context* which is managed by the Secure Boot Manager (SBM).

This process prevents application code and malware from accessing assets in the security context, preventing tampering and compromise. In addition, device-specific identity settings prevent the contents of the device being manufactured from being cloned or forged.

* Security context:

  • Encryption keys and certificates
  • Secure boot configuration
  • Application update process and policies
  • Device memory layout
IAR Secure Supply Chain Solutions
  • Embedded Trust: This covers the entire life cycle, from the development stage to market deployment, and secure updates, etc.
  • C-Trust: This is used during software development. You can import security contexts and facilitate security development as part of the development flow.
  • Secure Desktop Provisioner: You can provision securely to the MCU with a secure appliance.

Security settings can be easily configured by selecting the checkboxes for each software application.
