Nordic ARM® CryptoCell-310
Security is a paramount consideration for the design of connectable IoT devices today and in the future. Security must be a design consideration from the ground up in any truly secure application. ARM® CryptoCell-310 is an integrated security core that consists of both hardware and software components. It provides a comprehensive security infrastructure that enables system wide protection that includes use cases inside and outside the device.
It has a cryptographic hardware engine, providing CPU host offloading, operation acceleration and power consumption reduction. Cryptography and security middleware services are available. Platform Security building blocks library and Device Life-Cycle-State management is available, as well as a Key Management infrastructure and a function called Secure Boot to avoid loading dangerous codes at startup. The SoC nRF52840 implements the ARM® CryptoCell-310 as a multi-layered product, consisting of a hardware security infrastructure, and a middleware layer on top of it. The nRF52840 is perfecty suited for trustworthy applications with robust industry grade Levels of security.
Note: The Development Kit for the nRF52840 as well as the SoC itself are available on Rutronik24.
