Understanding The Importance Of Silicon Security


Vulnerabilities like Meltdown, Spectre and Foreshadow are understandably considered quite serious by the semiconductor industry. This is because they can be exploited by a determined attacker to access sensitive data that should be securely locked down but isn’t. We can think about a cloud-based server running multiple applications that process and store sensitive data. Vulnerabilities lik... » read more

Multiple Roots Of Trust And Isolation: Key Roles For Absolute Security


Today, there are many different security processors available to the SoC designer. A majority have a commonality, and that is they are based on the same architecture. You can call it a two-domain architecture. One is non-secure; the other is secure with a single bit dividing the secure from the non-secure. What’s more, different applications from different entities may be running in that o... » read more
