Digital devices across all markets deal with an ever increasing list of functional requirements leading to an ever increasing range of possible threats and attack vectors. To address these threats, multiple organizations are defining security recommendations and requirements, as well as compliance validation programs. These can be large commercial organizations (e.g. service providers in various fields), government agencies, industry specific alliances and more.
To enable silicon vendors to cope with this plethora of requirements stemming from the target use cases, ARM provides a comprehensive security solution backed by a team of multi-disciplined experts with hands-on experience in forming a solution meeting the performance, power, area and security requirements. The ARM® TrustZone® CryptoCell solution is a comprehensive collection of silicon-proven security modules that provide platform level security services. Its multi-layered hardware and software architecture combines hardware accelerators, hardware roots-of-trust control with a rich layer of security software and off chip tools. The CryptoCell security solution is offered either as a “high performance” variant or as a “high efficiency” variant, allowing designers to trade-off performance, power and area, as well as robustness level, according to their target markets and use cases.
