Aix-en-Provence, France, June, 18 2018 – Inside Secure (Euronext Paris: INSD), at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, announced it entered into an agreement with Hangzhou NationalChip Science and Technology Co., Ltd, a leading innovator and developer of SoCs (system-on-chip), to use Inside Secure’s Secure Provisioning Solution to build robust security into its products during the chip manufacturing process.
Secure provisioning is recognized as a crucial, foundational security building block across diverse markets including automotive, entertainment, IoT, mobile and TV. Securing devices or end products can be worthless if their identities and cryptographic keys have been compromised during manufacturing.
Widely-publicized attacks have targeted provisioning because they can affect large numbers of devices and are difficult to detect. Chipmakers and device manufacturers see the potential for new revenue sources by offering secure provisioning to their customers, leveraging technology solutions that are more robust and more cost-effective than traditional secure manufacturing locations.
Inside Secure’s Secure Provisioning Solution is independent from the manufacturing process, the supply chain and the chip architecture. SoCs and devices can be provisioned with sensitive assets, including unique authentication keys for any required security level throughout the lifecycle of the product. The company’s Secure Provisioning Solution has strong traction in the market, selected by multiple customers who now provide a high-level of protection without needing to create a new infrastructure for provisioning.
