UltraSoC joins GSA IoT Security Working Group

IoT Security Workshop takes place in Santa Clara on 18th June

CAMBRIDGE, UK – 17 June 2019 --  UltraSoC today announced it has been selected as a member of the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) Internet of Things (IoT) Security Working Group and will be participating in the upcoming IoT Security Workshop, as part of the 2019 GSA Silicon Summit. The group has recently identified automotive security as a key area for focus – an area where UltraSoC will draw on its experience in embedded analytics for cybersecurity and functional safety applications.

The GSA IoT Security Working Group was established to address end-to-end issues in IoT security. It is comprised of various IoT ecosystem security stakeholders including chipset vendors, platform companies, cloud vendors and service providers. The goal is to promote best practices on IoT security, share information on threats and attacks, define security requirements and inform standards bodies. It is also an opportunity for GSA members and partners to influence the requirements for security that get passed to all participants in the value and supply chains.

UltraSoC’s embedded analytics technology delivers value throughout the security value chain. For developers building secure systems it helps speed time to design and build secure SoCs and provides the ability to continue to monitor and report on their performance once in place. In addition, UltraSoC offers in-life benefits to its customers and even to the end users - by enabling on-chip monitoring and analytics systems that respond at hardware speed (microseconds rather than milliseconds), are difficult to subvert because they operate “below the operating system”, and can provide an additional orthogonal “root of trust” to those used in conventional systems.

“Being able to guarantee security at the heart of our technology is fundamental to the work of this group,” said Marc Canel, Chair of the GSA Security Working Group. “We’re therefore delighted that UltraSoC has joined the Group and look forward to benefiting from the company’s ‘embedded insights’ to educate and inform our essential work in this area.”

Rupert Baines, CEO of UltraSoC, added: “At UltraSoC, we appreciate the challenges of building a comprehensive security ecosystem for something as diverse as the IoT. We also believe our team has a lot to bring to the table and look forward to participating in the Group’s activities. We are committed to improving cybersecurity and functional safety from ‘within’ and we believe all devices can benefit from the sort of in-life embedded intelligence our technology delivers.”

The Working Group has also already identified important project topics including Pre-Silicon Assessment, Identity Management, Provisioning, Trusted Supply Chain, and Virtualization. The Group will also be undertaking future projects in Automotive Security and Silicon-as-a-Service. To date, stakeholders in the IoT security ecosystem from more than 50 companies have been involved.

The GSA IoT Security Workshop takes place as part of the 2019 GSA Silicon Summit on the 18th June, in Santa Clara, USA.
