Security architecture for trusted execution environments
Elliptic Technologies introduced the tVault Security Architecture – a technology that enables end-to-end security in connected devices.
tVault provides robust security inside Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) and enforces the protection of sensitive information to ensure that it is stored, processed and accessed only by authorized applications.
“Robust security and content protection for connected devices are key elements for meeting the consumer’s desire for ubiquitous connectivity, streaming and sharing of content among multiple devices, from anywhere at any time,” said Vijay Dube, President and CEO of Elliptic Technologies. “Security solutions from Elliptic based on our innovative tVault architecture have already garnered strong interest from Tier 1 chipset and device vendors.”
tVault enables highly secure environments that allow for a wide range of applications including Digital Rights Management (DRM) and content protection, Over-The-Top (OTT) TV, mobile TV and electronic financial transactions to be deployed in high performance computing platforms.
tVault consists of firmware, standard APIs, hardware support and acceleration that runs efficiently in limited resource environments. tVault integrates seamlessly within frameworks such as ARM TrustZone, where the critical security components are embedded in a trusted and secure OS environment.
The non-critical components are executed by the rich OS, such as Android. tVault enables SoC vendors, OEMs, ODMs and network operators to bring products to market with standards-compliant security.
tVault HDCP 2.1 and tVault DTCP-IP are dedicated to content protection and are security technologies that allow consumers to enjoy high definition premium content anywhere and anytime, while safeguarding the rights of media producers to protect their investment in programming production.
