Micron(R) Case Study: IoT Security


Micron is leveraging its position as a leader in the manufacturing of flash memory, and a leader in the embedded markets, to create a whole new paradigm to address IoT security challenges. Micron developed the Authenta™ Security-as-a-Service platform as a cost effective, widely scalable and business appropriate way to employ security across a diverse set of systems with fragmented supply-chains and ecosystems.

The Authenta platform is a combination of the Authenta enabled flash, which has integration of secure element function in the flash with provisioned identities, and a Authenta Key Management Service. This provides a simple activation and ownership change service for a wide-range of IoT security services and device management services. The combination of these two capabilities along with the commitment of a market leader to drive the solution to the market creates a very attractive proposition for Micron’s customers in the securing their products in and everything connected world.

We use SanCloud’s Beaglebone Enhanced as a trusted boot demo platform. SanCloud exceeded expectations in execution, delivery and craftsmanship.  Working engineer to engineer makes the whole Contract Manufacturing process a real pleasure.

I recommend SanCloud to other groups within Micron when they need a reference platform. The Beaglebone Enhanced, with its near client desktop OS package model, strips away a lot of the embedded hardware platform boilerplate work you need to go through when dealing with a more traditional embedded Linux system
