Express Logic Supports Secure Boot and Secure Firmware Update for STM32 MCU Family (X-CUBE-SBSFU)

Express Logic Integrates STMicroelectronics’ Secure Boot and Secure Firmware Update Services for STM32 MCUs with its industry-Leading X-Ware IoT Platform®

San Diego, CA, May 07, 2018 — Express Logic, provider of the comprehensive X-Ware IoT Platform® Secure Cloud (SC) powered by the industry-leading ThreadX® RTOS with more than 6.2 billion deployments, announced today that it has integrated the STMicroelectronics’ Secure Boot and Secure Firmware Update v.2.0 services with its X-Ware IoT Platform for its developers using the STM32-family of ARM® Cortex®-M microcontrollers.

The X-CUBE-SBSFU Secure Boot and Secure Firmware Update solution enables the update of the STM32 microcontroller built-in program with new firmware versions based on the X-Ware IoT Platform. The update process is performed in a secure way to prevent unauthorized updates and access to confidential on-device data. In addition, Secure Boot (Root of Trust services) checks and activates STM32 mechanisms, and checks the authenticity and integrity of X-Ware IoT Platform before every execution to ensure that invalid or malicious code cannot be run. This combination of secure boot and secure firmware update adds a new dimension to X-Ware IoT Platform security for the STM32 microcontroller.

Because X-CUBE-SBSFU is built on top of STM32Cube software technology, the X-Ware IoT Platform integration will be portable across the entire range of STM32 microcontrollers, beginning with the STM32L4 and STM32L4+ series devices.

Express Logic has established itself as the safety leader in the embedded IoT space with its industrial-grade approach, including precertification to SIL 4 and ASIL D safety standards. The new secure boot and secure firmware update services from STMicroelectronics enhance security for Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform for the STM32 microcontroller.

“Security is the major topic in the embedded IoT community today, and our X-Ware IoT Platform integration with X-CUBE-SBSFU addresses a major technical challenge for our customers,” said William E. Lamie, President, Express Logic. “With this integration, X-Ware IoT Platform developers can concentrate on their application development rather than having to devise and implement secure boot and secure firmware update schemes, making their job significantly easier.”

“The X-CUBE-SBSFU v.2.0 from ST enhances Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform to fully utilize the range of security features of STM32 microcontrollers to protect connected devices like IoT endpoints,” said Laurent Desseignes, Microcontroller Ecosystem Marketing Manager, STMicroelectronics.
