The Root of Trust as Abstraction for Device Security

Dr. Eric Vétillard, Head of Future Certifications, NXP Semiconductors, France

• Overcoming the discrepancy between the technical complexity of the devices and their security features and the technical expertise of the connected device developer
• Using the notion of Root of Trust as abstraction of the security features
• Extending the Root of Trust to the notion of IoT Platform,
• How this layered approach allows us to organize a security supply chain with a clear definition of responsibility between stakeholders, enabling efficient development and certification for connected devices.
