Xitex will be giving a presentation on security standards and architecture considerations for secure hardware design and verification, at the Verification Futures 2016 Conference on the 4th February 2016.

The presentation will consider the foundations of secure products in particular the need for true random number sources for nonce and key generation and product compliance with standards such as FIPS 140-2 and 186-4. With more customers, for example the mobile network operators mandating standards compliance, we go on to consider what independent tests are available to demonstrate standards compliance. Consideration is also given to some of the architectural security verification challenges and looks at a brief case study on secure hardware for 3G/4G Small cells.

  • Considering the foundations of secure products and some of the relevant standards for IoT hardware security
  • What tests are available for validating security sub-systems such as random number generators
  • A brief case study on the choice of hardware for secure connected products such as 3G/4G Small Cells
