ProvenRun endorses Platform Security Architecture from Arm with ProvenCore-M for Armv8-M

ProvenRun, a leading provider of IoT security solutions, announces that its award-winning ProvenCore-M for Arm®v8-M architecture is aligned with the newly announced Platform Security Architecture (PSA) from Arm. ProvenCore-M for Armv8-M, a next-generation formally proven ultra-secure RTOS, won the embedded award 2017 in the Software category at the Embedded World show in Nuremberg, Germany.

ProvenCore-M for Armv8-M provides a secure layer running inside the Arm TrustZone™-based root of trust defined by the Armv8-M architecture. ProvenCore-M for Armv8-M enables chipmakers, devices makers and solution developers to rely on a scalable secured-by-design platform for all IoT devices based on Arm Cortex®-M chips compatible with the Armv8-M architecture.

  • ProvenCore-M for Armv8-M extends the versatility of such chips and provides certified security features for sensitive security services running on top of it such as secure boot, firmware update, secure storage, etc.
  • The security properties of ProvenCore-M have been formally proven. This means that ProvenCore-M is as close as possible to “zero-bugs” and highly resistant to attacks.

“With PSA, Arm is providing the ecosystem with a low-level security API that satisfies the security requirements which are needed by the value chain to increase the security of IoT products and to enable the mass deployment of the IoT,” explains Dominique Bolignano, President and Founder of ProvenRun. “As a close security partner of Arm, we are fully committed to supporting the Arm ecosystem and PSA in particular with our products and offerings.”  

“Given the unprecedented pace of diverse connected device deployments, security can no longer be considered optional,” said Paul Williamson, vice president and general manager, IoT Device IP, Arm. “To address this, Arm developed PSA to provide the industry with a common framework for reducing the cost, time and risk associated with securing connected devices. Through extensive analysis and a review process, which included input from ProvenRun, a trusted secure technology solutions provider, we are ensuring the next trillion connected devices are built on a common secure foundation.”
