INTEGRITY Security Services (ISS), a Green Hills Software company, has announced the Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) Managed Service to simplify manufacturing cryptographic IoT devices requiring digitally signed software, zero-exposure key generation, certificate authority, and automotive vehicle-to-vehicle certificate generation. The DLM Managed Service eliminates the overhead of developing and supporting internal PKI systems for secure delivery of digital trust assets to partners and suppliers across global supply chains.
The DLM Managed Service offers IoT device manufacturers with a dedicated hosted solution to manage all digital trust assets, including digitally signed software, keys, and certificates – for one or many products incorporating FIPS 140-2, Level 3 protection to the manufacturing floor. All hardware, software, and services are included to complement, so internal resources can focus on developing high-value features without sacrificing security.
“The rapid pace to deliver new secure products becomes more complicated when addressing the many partners and suppliers within an organisation,” says David Sequino, vice president and general manager of INTEGRITY Security Services. “Organisations must support uninterrupted manufacturing by sharing critical trust assets without the risk of compromise on external networks. The DLM Managed Service protects critical device data from untrusted networks until metered to the device. The ISS team provides the expertise needed at lower risk and cost.”
The DLM Managed Service is compatible with leading secure microprocessors and controllers, including Texas Instruments, Infineon, ST Micro, NXP/Freescale, and Renesas. DLM provides high assurance protection of root keys and formats signed software to leverage hardware security modules and ROM-based secure boot operations. The DLM x.509 certificate authority and automotive V2X/C2X certificate managed services use the encrypted network to perform cryptographic operations at remote manufacturing locations to best meet business needs.
“As the need for hardware-based security continues to grow, the protection of keys during manufacturing becomes increasingly important,” says Steve Reis, automotive security manager at Texas Instruments. “Together with ISS DLM and Texas Instruments hardware, embedded product developers have a complete end-to-end solution to protect device data and reliability.”
