- ON Semiconductor has integrated Verdify Security’s data security tools into its SoC
- Verdify’s secure data exchange feature also enables ultra-low-power consumption
ON Semiconductor has announced that Veridify Security’s tools can be implemented for the RSL10, a low powered Flash-based Bluetooth Low Energy radio System on Chip (SoC). These tools come in a CMSIS-Pack, enabling developers to protect their RSL10 solutions with critical security features including device-to-device authentication, data protection and secure firmware updates. Solutions built with Veridify are ideally suited for applications involving IoT in the industrial, smart building, medical, automotive and consumer spaces.
The RSL10 radio family offers built-in security features, including an AES-128 encryption hardware block and the ability to lock the debug interface against potential intruders for IP protection. Veridify’s technology to provides identification, authentication, and data protection between devices in the field. An RSL10 radio running Veridify’s public key tools can exchange their signed public keys, authenticate the public key owner, create a brief secret code and then use this shared secret with the AES128 engine to encrypt data between the device and its user.
Devices running Veridify Security tools, like the RSL10, can take advantage of DOME™, Veridify’s zero-touch onboarding, blockchain ownership management and enrolment solution. Veridify’s security solutions are ISO 26262 ASIL D certified, have a very small code footprint and can be implemented in software-only, as demonstrated on the RSL10’s Arm Cortex-M3 processor. Security protocols based on Veridify tools can run as fast as 28 milliseconds for authenticating protocols on the RSL10, thus offering energy-saving benefits.
“Power consumption and security are significant priorities to IoT edge node manufacturers. By enhancing the already superior performance of the RSL10 radio with Veridify’s technology, we are pleased to provide IoT manufacturers with a secure end-to-end solution,” said Wiren Perera, Head of IoT at ON Semiconductor.
“With its rich feature-set and industry-leading ultra-low-power consumption, the RSL10 is an excellent platform for delivering secure wireless applications. We are excited that our collaboration with ON Semiconductor has delivered a robust security solution that is easy to implement with security features usually only available on much larger processors,” said Louis Parks, CEO, Veridify Security.
The Bluetooth IoT Development Kit CMSIS-Pack containing Veridify’s Public Key security tools is now available for free use.
