A Future-proof Performance Enhancement for Secure MCUboot Vortragssprache Englisch

Real-time operating systems offer embedded developers engineering efficiencies and shorter time to market. An important technology that is emerging in support of real-time operating systems is MCUboot'a secure bootloader for 32-bit MCUs. Unfortunately, the underlying cryptography for MCUboot is RSA and ECC and, in the next few years, both methods will be broken by the imminent arrival of quantum computing. The specter of quantum computing is why, for example, the U.S. Department of Commerce has solicited post-quantum replacements for RSA and ECC. Walnut Digital Signature Algorithm is one of the replacements now under consideration. In addition to being quantum-resistant, WalnutDSA offers faster run-times and a lower ROM/RAM footprint than RSA and ECC, which significantly speeds up the boot process. SecureRF has incorporated a complete image signing and verification capability into MCUboot using WalnutDSA. The result is a faster, quantum-resistant secure boot solution. This presentation will explain why the Walnut digital signature algorithm is faster and quantum-resistant and show the performance gains achieved. Attendees will learn how they can integrate the enhanced version of MCUboot into their own products for secure boot and secure firmware updates.
