France-based Inside Secure has developed what the company claims is a set of certification-ready hardware IP modules that can be used standalone or in conjunction with ARM’s TrustZone to embed hardware-secure elements in their mobile designs.

Simon Blake-Wilson, executive vice president of the Mobile Security division at Inside Secure, said the new modules result from the recent acquisition of Embedded Security Solutions (ESS). He added: “This certification-ready silicon IP approach will enable our customers to get their products to market more quickly and more easily attain relevant security validations, including EMVCo, GlobalPlatform, FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria certifications.”

The VaultIP cores are designed to protect confidential data, including cryptographic keys and other sensitive assets, preventing unsecured access. It stores root keys and enforces key-management policies in hardware, providing a protected area within which trusted applications can execute without disturbance, tampering or eavesdropping by any of these attack methods.

When used in conjunction with a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), the VaultIP solution ensures the integrity of the TEE by providing an additional layer of defence to anchor the system
