SEATTLE, July 21, 2020 – Sequitur Labs today debuted the next generation of its comprehensive approach to embedded system security with the launch of EmSPARK™ 2.0 to prevent high-value, embedded devices from being compromised. Version 2.0 now features powerful security defenses for critical intellectual property, secure chip-to-cloud integration, and over-the-air (OTA) firmware update protection. Built on three pillars of product security – design, build and sustain, EmSPARK 2.0 provides device manufacturers with the firmware, tools, and APIs needed to properly execute IoT protection.
The new version of Sequitur’s EmSPARK Security Suite provides a robust security framework protecting embedded firmware, keys, and security-critical assets through the entire device life cycle. It enables silicon hardware security features, secure device provisioning, and API access to essential trust services such as secure storage, firmware updates, and payload verification.
“Johnson Controls continues its leadership around cybersecurity within the building management space. As building connectivity continues to grow with IT/OT convergence, IoT devices, and cloud applications, it is critical that the devices 'at the edge' have a strong cyber posture," said James Burke, VP/GM – Building Automation Systems at Johnson Controls. "Our Metasys SNE and SNC supervisory controllers, with EmSPARK™, demonstrate our commitment to continue to invest in protecting our customers by prioritizing cybersecurity.”
EmSPARK2.0 enables critical device security features on the IoT developer’s silicon of choice; supporting secure boot, OTA updates, failovers, and IP protection throughout the device’s life cycle. Sequitur additionally supports customers’ implementations with non-recurring engineering (NRE) services for faster time to market. Additional features include:
The EmSPARK Security Suite was designed to address solutions in industries where embedded security is paramount such as industrial control, building automation, smart home, machine vision, automotive communication, and medical devices. Earlier this year, Sequitur Labs worked with Arrow Electronics on protecting security-conscious IoT edge devices with the debut of Arrow’s Shield96 board, a trusted Linux reference design that is equipped with EmSPARK to help customers create customized production-ready systems. With an increasing number of successful projects underway, Sequitur Labs inactively supporting Arrow with important embedded system security implementations.
“With as many as 60 billion smart devices expected to be online in the coming years, it is imperative for IoT manufacturers to implement a best-practices approach that ensures that products, applications, and systems are not vulnerable to malicious attacks,” said Chris Stiffen, Research Director for EMA. “By implementing a pre-packaged software security suite like EmSPARK 2.0, OEMs have a technical solution that enables them to overcome steep learning curves, ensure personnel resources are available to focus on core capabilities, and reduce critical time to market.”
“The greatest obstacle to a future serviced by smart devices is security, including aggressive new variants that attack endpoints at the edge and threaten embedded computing systems,” said Philip Attfield, Co-founder, and CEO, Sequitur Labs. “Up until now, addressing these threats has been difficult and expensive. With EmSPARK 2.0, we make implementing device-level security easy by addressing the technical, IP, supply chain, and business process challenges of IoT security. Now Developers can easily build applications that use secure resources without having to become experts in cryptography and complex hardware security technologies."
