Parsec, the Platform Abstraction for Security project provides a micro-service that maps easy to consume security APIs in the language of choice to security primitives found in various hardware. Parsec is an opensource project that is part of the Cloud Native Compute Foundation sandbox.

As developers aim to secure their applications by tying them to root of trust, they inherently tie the application to specific security primitives. This inhibits the ability to move the applications freely from one platform to the next. To address this challenge, Parsec abstracts the security root of trust and provides a common set of APIs to the developer. This ensures that the same application can move freely from one architecture to another.

Simplifying security

The initial overhead of incorporating Parsec into your security framework will provide benefits by simplifying steps such as signing a payload or provisioning keys. Parsec has been designed to interface with the security backends exposing simple to use security APIs.

Abstraction layer

By leveraging Parsec, moving your design to a new chipset with a different security primitive does not impose a change in the security commands in your apps. Building your platform with the right Parsec provider library to match your security primitive ensures your security interface will continue to work.

Multi-tenancy at the edge​

Many security primitives found in edge devices are designed to service one client. In some cases, developers might need to isolate information between applications and therefore require isolation at an application level. Parsec framework defines a mechanism to enable multitenancy security at the edge.
