Secure Thingz Achieves Industry's First SESIP Certification for its Secure Boot Manager

Secure Thingz announced that its Secure Boot Manager has been assessed and certified according to the Security Evaluation Standard for IoT Platforms (SESIP).

Secure Thingz announced that its Secure Boot Manager has been assessed and certified according to the Security Evaluation Standard for IoT Platforms (SESIP). The assessment has been conducted by the independent security lab, Brightsight, which is fully licensed by TrustCB, a commercial Certification Body specializing in certifying IoT security products.

SESIP defines a standard for independent certification of the security of IoT devices. End users may benefit from devices’ independently audited security claims, while device developers can use pre-certified components to help meet the needs of customers’ security requirements.

Secure Thingz’ Secure Boot Manager (SBM) is a secure bootloader for microcontrollers, which delivers a set of features including the implementation of a formal Root of Trust plus robust lock-down of the device; provisioning and management of cryptographic keys, and fully authenticated loading of applications; patches, and updates.

The SBM is implemented dynamically based on developers’ decisions and device-specific functionality. It is a component of the solutions’ C-Trust, implementing secure development into the development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench, and the Security from Inception Suite, providing a unique set of tools and services for implementing and customizing security in embedded applications.

A certification ceremony will take place on Tuesday, February 25, at embedded world 2020 in Nuremberg, Germany, at 14:00 in the Brightsight booth #4-580 (Hall 4).
