IoT Security for ST MCUs

Software-based, high performance solutions for ST MCUs including STM8, STM32 and SPC58 Chorus

 

SecureRF is member of the ST Partner Program offering fast, quantum-resistant identification, authentication, and device-to-device data protection solutions ideally suited for 8-, 16- and 32-bit devices such as the STMicroelectronics STM8, STM32 and SPC58 Chorus MCUs.

SecureRF’s security toolkit includes Ironwood™ Key Agreement Protocol (Ironwood KAP) and Walnut Digital Signature Algorithm (WalnutDSA™), which are designed to run on the smallest processors. Based on Group Theoretic Cryptography methods, the computational efficiency of SecureRF’s security protocols and algorithms translate into significant performance advantages over legacy security methods.

Regardless of which ST MCU you're building on, our methods fit and perform significantly faster than legacy methods like ECC and RSA while providing equivalent security. Of special interest to designers of devices with long service lives, all SecureRF methods are quantum-resistant to all known attacks.

Automotive secure boot, authentication and data protection

 

For automotive design engineers, SecureRF and ST offer a secure boot solution that also provides endpoint authentication and device-to-device data protection for ECUs/TCUs. The solution is software-only (no hardware accelerators required) and enables a vehicle's TCUs and ECUs to rapidly verify the authenticity and integrity of commands and sensor data.

The secure boot and firmware update signature verification operations run in under 1ms depending on processor speed, fit on low-resource ECUs and are easy to integrate with existing firmware.

Rapid development of strong security for IoT devices

The fastest way to evaluate our methods is to use a development board like the STM32 Nucleo along with our free SDK, which enables you to load our software and begin evaluating our algorithms in just minutes. You can learn more about the SDKs available and make your request for the right SDK here.

SecureRF SDKs are available on leading development platforms for ST MCUs including Keil, IAR Embedded Workbench, and Atollic® TrueSTUDIO®.
