Embedded Security

In today’s vast interconnected world the need to provide greater security within a customer’s product or system is quickly becoming a standard requirement. In order to prevent theft of everything from software/hardware intellectual property, data, or communications services, customers today are designing their products with an eye on providing more complex systems in an effort to stay one step ahead of the criminal element.

Markets such as automotive, medical, consumer, wireless, or commercial systems have implemented a variety of approaches to providing security. Highfive Electronics brings together both Cryptographic and Non-Cryptographic pieces to build a total solution. Remember, nothing is 100% secure, system designers must implement multiple techniques to make their system as difficult as possible to break.

Physical Embedded Security

If someone has physical access to your product, can they access your product?

You can directly test the protocol request to see the response time or the power consumption. Anyone who can access the device may use powerful attack methods. We provide a variety of hardware and software features to help you prevent these types of attacks and ensure that all access is secure.

Embedded Security Encryption Acceleration

How do you achieve performance with access latency or high concurrency while maintaining the security of a certain number of keys/data/codes?

You can use the dedicated hardware we designed to achieve the encryption goal. It may provide this encryption in hardware or other forms, such as Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). In some cases, the device does not provide encryption acceleration, but we provide a common software C library. In order to achieve high concurrent access encryption, to ensure that encryption can be accelerated.

Embedded Security Debugging Safety

Can someone use a special way of debugger to read your product data?

You can lock the debugging port so that the debugger cannot read your product data. Some devices will provide various debugging options, such as a permanent lock or you can create a password/credential for each device to allow the debugging port to be reopened, and the debugging method can be flexibly set.

Embedded Security Device ID/Key

How to let each user identify and verify your device identity in the network?

You can evaluate and choose to use your identity in the device. For example, it may have the form of a unique ID (UID), or it may have the form of a signature (certificate) key, which can be easily shared with cloud services.

Embedded Security Cybersecurity

How do you achieve the best performance while connecting to the network using known protocols?

You can use Internet Security Protocol (IPsec), Transport Layer Security Protocol (TLS), or dedicated hardware or firmware for these protocols (firmware refers to software in ROM or software written by us at the time of manufacturing) network protocol accelerators.


Embedded Security Safe Boot

How do you ensure that your software can only run on your device?

Some methods can be used to protect the safety of the boot process by preventing the loading of unsigned access and software that can accept digital signatures (bootloaders, drivers, operating systems, applications).


Embedded Security Secure Firmware and Software Updating

How do you update your app remotely and securely? No one should be able to snoop, impersonate or steal your updates.

You can encrypt and sign some or all of the applied update images to help reduce snooping, impersonation, or theft of your firmware updates. We provide functional design and development of various products, such as over-the-air (OTA) update, hot-swap, and external flash memory loading while the application is running.
