Security is now a key requirement for embedded systems. The desire to connect devices to the internet to make it easier to control them and pull live data from their sensors brings with it a high risk of hacking. The hacking activity does not put at risk just individual devices but entire networks. This article outlines how with Microchip’s Trust Platform, customers have access to highly customizable security mechanisms with much lower development and deployment risk than existing solutions. The combination of tools, source code and supply infrastructure provide a path for embedded systems developers to gain access to a complete securely provisioned system that works from concept to deployment, reducing the development process from months to days.
