White paper: Implementing Secure Boot in your end device to protect your system's assets
Regardless of the assets that need protection, security has always been difficult to implement. From end users to the engineering community and investors, the value chain has often shown some reluctance to accept and implement secure solutions. However, following increasing malicious attacks and due to their disastrous consequences, IoT and Industry 4.0 companies have begun to realize that security breaches might hurt their financial results and jeopardize their success.
This whitepaper focuses on implementing secure boot technology within embedded applications. While describing the different security challenges involved within the secure boot, the document explains how ST facilitates the implementation of secure embedded solutions without raising the bottom line thanks to an open-source software implementation.
This whitepaper covers the following topics:
- Security market challenges
- Security principles
- How ST ensures end-device security
- The open-source software dilemma
- The added-value of open source software
