IAR Systems and Secure Thingz collaborate for easier IoT security implementation
IAR Systems and Secure Thingz announced the next step in their collaboration to provide new technology in order to simplify the development of secure, connected devices.
With the rapidly evolving IoT comes an urgent need for new ways of ensuring security across development, production and use of connected products. Manufacturers must find strong and efficient methods to protect their brands as well as prohibit counterfeiting or overproduction, and should integrate these methods as part of their regular workflow. To meet these demands, development tools must evolve to encompass security and facilitate the production of secure IoT software. Tools vendors can help by providing ways to simplify the setup of an extended and unified security workflow from development and debugging to manufacturing. This will enable an easy handover from development to mass production, as well as assist implementation of versioning and rollback policies, and simplify certificate and key implementation.
The companies’ joint solutions will enable secure device identities and privileges, allowing manufacturers and users alike to establish secure supply chains of trust, from silicon device manufacturing to product deployment and updates.
