A Franco-German announcement brings improved security to SoCs for the IoT
Following Jim Turley’s report on Arm and ARC adding security to their small processor cores, and Bryon Moyer’s on-going series on IoT security, comes news of more core security for the IoT.
Cortus, the French based 32-bit core IP company has signed a deal with Cellnetrix, a German based company specialising in software security for embedded devices, which will see the CellSIM secure embedded operating system running on Cortus APS processor cores. Cortus’ cores are in sensors, communications and security applications, the very bread and butter of the IoT. The idea is that by using CellSIM, developers can both secure their communication protocols and securely update their firmware over the network.
