A comprehensive range of hardware and software Security services for the protection of Embedded Computers

KONTRON SEC-Line (Secure Embedded Computing) modules and services combine the most up-to-date technologies for the protection of Embedded Applications: Trusted and Secure Boot, Trusted Modules, Advanced authentication and Application binary encryption.

To answer increasing security requirements for safety-critical applications, Kontron has built up its security capabilities into four modules, implementing hardware enforced root of trust, as well as software only techniques.

  • Based on a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) secure element
    • TRUSTED BOOT: protect the system software during the boot and help detect any system software alteration
    • AUTHENTICATION WITH TPM: authenticate the system hardware during communication phases (SSL/TLS) and thus enable secure network protocols.
  • Based on a dedicated hardware secure element:
    • APPROTECT: ensure the application’s integrity and confidentiality with a dedicated hardware secure element.
  • Sofware only techniques
    • SECURE BOOT: boot only signed software from the BIOS firmware

Together with SEC-Line, Kontron proposes in-house the necessary additional services compliant with ISO 27000 standard for the encryption of applicative software and the management of Security Certificates.
