On-demand webinar Strengthening MCU Device Security with the STM32U5

Join us for 1-hour on-demand webinar to learn about advanced device security for a connected world with the STM32U5 MCU.

Recorded in October 2021

With more devices being connected, microcontrollers must now be able to provide the highest level of embedded security to end products developed by embedded developers.

The new STM32U5 features enhanced security peripherals that can prevent unwanted data breaches and attacks to protect firmware and sensitive data.

Join this on-demand webinar for an overview of the new STM32U5 microcontroller and the security IPs included to maximize protection. We discuss the new password protection debug functionality for readout protection (RDP) levels, and describe the updated TrustZone Controller, which provides additional threat isolation with SRAM memory blocks. We also review the Secure Advanced Encryption Standard (SAES) hardware accelerator block, which can be used for key storage and is resistant to side channel attacks.


  • Introduction to the new STM32U5 microcontroller family for connected IoT applications
  • Overview of the flexible life cycle scheme with RDP and password protected debug
  • Detailing Enhanced Key Storage utilizing the Hardware Unique Key (HUK)
  • Cryptography IP improvements, including side channel protections

There is a recorded Q&A session at the end of the webinar where our experts answered questions from the floor.
