New eBook offers expert insights on embedded security

Mouser Electronics announces a new eBook produced in collaboration with global semiconductor leader Analog Devices (ADI). In Embedded Security: Keeping Edge Data Safe, experts from ADI and other companies take a deep look at embedded security concepts and their importance.

Today’s embedded devices are expected to measure, store, and communicate data and upgrade firmware securely, but each function represents a system vulnerability point. Even if designers implement secure design principles in their devices, they would be for naught if the end-user does not operate their device in a secure manner.

The first chapter, ‘Secure Use Management’, discusses ensuring that devices are used in the intended way. In ‘Trusted Operations for Connected Products’, secure communication protocols, certificates and credentials are shown to be critical.

The chapter on ‘Factory Provisioning’ explains the secure key injection process in which OEMs and factories collaborate to ensure the secure installation of secrets. In the final chapter, ‘Convergence of IT and OT Networks’, the increasing overlap of information technology (IT) and operational technology addresses additional security concerns.

ADI has a long history in the field of embedded security and offers customers a broad portfolio of solutions, many of which are highlighted in the eBook. The DS28E30 1-Wire ECDSA secure authenticator is a turnkey authentication solution well-suited for the authentication and calibration of medical tools and peripherals. The MAXQ1065 ultra-low-power cryptographic coprocessor features ChipDNA PUF, configurable security policies, TLS protocol, and x.509 certificates management, simplifying the implementation of complete security for IoT devices.

Automotive secure authenticators, such as the DS28C40, helps prevent third-parties to clone safety critical components for after-market vehicle parts. The DS28E83 radiation-resistant 1-Wire secure authenticator offers high radiation resistance, enabling user-programmable manufacturing or calibration data prior to medical sterilisation.
