IAR Systems announced its security tool C-Trust is now supporting the Arm Cortex-M33 based LPC55S6x MCUs from NXP Semiconductors. The MCUs will assist companies in easing the implementation of security in their applications.
According to the company, NXP’s LPC55S6x MCUs are dual-core Arm Cortex-M33 MCUs, which leverage the Armv8-M architecture to introduce new levels of performance and advanced security capabilities.
Arm TrustZone technology and a memory protection unit is included in one of the cores. The MCU features crypto accelerators and a PUF (Physically Unclonable Function) to fight cloning and counterfeiting. It also includes True Random Number Generator (TRNG), a Unique Device Identifier, Secure GPIOs, secure authenticate debug capabilities, a secure boot with root-of-trust keys and anti-rollback protection, among other things.
C-Trust is as an extension of the complete development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench® for Arm and enables developers to protect an existing or new application, and ease mastering the deeper complexities of security, through the use of Security Context Profiles. These Security Context Profiles are developed by Secure Thingz. C-Trust provides the application with a robust protection against Intellectual Property (IP) theft, malware injection, counterfeiting and overproduction.
