A New Zero-Trust Model For Securing Embedded Systems
Building on the great interest generated last year, Cesare Garlati - Chief Technologist a the non-profit prpl Foundation, is back to the Embedded World Conference to discuss in detail the new components of the open source prplSecurity Framework 2.0. Garlati will begin by analyzing the aspects of embedded computing that contribute to the majority of security incidents. These include proprietary ‘security-by-obscurity’, the complexity associated with proper implementations of modern connectivity stacks, the lack of a root of trust anchored in hardware, and the intrinsic promiscuity of code and data within embedded system. Garlati will then propose a set of new APIs to overcome these challenges, as advocated by the prpl Foundation. The prplSecurity Framework 2.0 is a comprehensive set of open source APIs designed to provide end-to-end security silicon-to-cloud. Key aspects include: - An overall open source approach in contrast to the old myth of ‘security by obscurity’ - A secure boot API to execute code cryptographically signed by a trusted entity. - Physically Uncloneable Functions (PUF) APIs to create a root of trust in silicon. - A Trust Continuum API to maintain trust throughout the whole life cycle of the device. - A micro hypervisor to create multiple hardware-enforced security domains on the chip. The presentation will be essential viewing for system designers and application developers with an interest in innovative, yet practical, ways to secure embedded system applications.
