The key elements of the Layerscape Secure Platform are:
- NXP Trust Architecture technology provides secure boot, secure debug, anti-tamper, run-time integrity checking (RTIC) and secret key protection capabilities.
- Secure Provisioning Tool provides code signing, security hardware policy configuration, secure credential installation and maintenance, with easy integration into OEM and 3rd party Device Life Cycle Management (DLM) frameworks.
- Trusted Linux includes trusted applications and trusted services built on a secure OS.
- Network Security Suite provides secure connectivity via hardware accelerated security protocols including IPsec & SSL, as well as firewall and deep packet inspection capabilities.
The Layerscape Secure Platform provides the necessary tools and infrastructure to help IoT device and IoT gateway OEMs and ODMs build, deploy, maintain and even decommission trusted systems. Layerscape Secure Platform tools and methods support distributed manufacturing models, without requiring the manufacturing sites to be equally secure and trustworthy.
Designers and manufacturers can also leverage NXP’s security expertise via security consulting services to review current processes, identify potential vulnerabilities and explore solutions.
