Building robust security into products during chip manufacturing
AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 25, 2018 — Inside Secure (Paris: INSD), at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, today announces that they have entered into an agreement with ALi Corporation, a leading innovator and developer of set-top box -SoCs (system on chip), to use Inside Secure’s leading 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. With Inside Secure’s Secure Provisioning Solution, customers such as ALi Corporation can provide this protection without the need to create a new infrastructure for provisioning, saving time and cost.
Widely-publicized attacks have targeted provisioning because they can affect large numbers of devices and are hard 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 both more robust and more cost-effective than the traditional dedicated secure manufacturing locations.
Inside Secure is a recognized leader in provisioning services and secure silicon IP. The company’s Secure Provisioning Solution offers secure provisioning in a variety of formats, including product/appliance, hosted service, and hybrid models, allowing customers to trade off upfront costs versus recurring costs. The solution allows deployment at all stages of a device lifecycle, including chip manufacturing, device manufacturing and in the field, leveraging Inside Secure’s Root-of-Trust Engine to protect the device identity and secure its authentication operations.
Inside Secure’s Secure Provisioning Solution is widely deployed and has a longstanding record of high-availability and little impact on manufacturing and operational efficiency. This certified solution is widely deployed globally, successfully used by tens of chipmakers and in hundreds of millions of chips.
“We have been working with Inside Secure on many successful projects for very important customers,” said Daniel Huang, chief executive officer of ALi Corporation. “And more importantly, we work with Inside Secure on provisioning because it allows us to provide a very strong level of security to our customers.”
“We are pleased to work with ALi for their secure provisioning,” said Simon Blake-Wilson, chief operating officer of Inside Secure. “This reinforces our position as a leader in this important area. Our Secure Provisioning Solution can protect products from the chip to the final product. Together with Inside Secure’s Root-of-Trust Engine, we deliver to the market an end-to-end solution to provision and secure electronic devices, and are able to provide customers robust security for all of their needs.”
