Secure Thingz in Cambridge, UK, is working with Intrinsic ID to integrate physical unclonable functions (PUF) within Secure Thingz development and provisioning solutions.
Establishing a supply chain of trust has never been more important as products and devices share sensitive information and provide vital services. With this partnership, companies will be able to develop products with unique identities and integrated confidentiality. This can then be carried through the entire development, manufacturing, and lifetime of a product through a secure microcontroller execution environment and an immutable boot path to a root of trust boot manager that verifies subsequent software before execution.
“Physical unclonable functions are vital components in many modern devices, with leading vendors integrating them into their microcontroller offerings for IoT security,” said Haydn Povey, CEO, Secure Thingz, part of the IAR Group. “Together with Intrinsic ID, we will enable this critical capability to be integrated into a wide array of embedded systems to deliver protection of provisioned data, together with the creation of root keys.”

“We believe PUF technology is fundamental for the security of embedded applications in the IoT environment,” said Pim Tuyls, CEO of Intrinsic ID. “Secure Thingz is a key player in delivering solutions to secure the IoT and this partnership will enable and support an accelerated adoption of PUF technology, providing a key differentiator for delivering chain-of-trust implementation across the embedded marketplace.”
This allows a robust root of trust as part of the development process that extends into programming and provisioning, supporting the use of PUF technology in volume programming and provisioning services across the world.
