Inside Secure to Provide Secure Provisioning Solutions to NationalChip

Regulatory News:

Inside Secure (Paris:INSD), at the heart of security solutions
for mobile and connected devices, announced it entered into an agreement
with Hangzhou NationalChip Science and Technology Co., Ltd, a leading
innovator and developer of SoCs (system-on-chip), to use Inside Secure’s
Secure Provisioning Solution to build robust security into its products
during the chip manufacturing process.

Secure provisioning is recognized as a crucial, foundational security
building block across diverse markets including automotive,
entertainment, IoT, mobile and TV. Securing devices or end products can
be worthless if their identities and cryptographic keys have been
compromised during manufacturing.

Widely-publicized attacks have targeted provisioning because they can
affect large numbers of devices and are difficult to detect. Chipmakers
and device manufacturers see the potential for new revenue sources by
offering secure provisioning to their customers, leveraging technology
solutions that are more robust and more cost-effective than traditional
secure manufacturing locations.

Inside Secure’s Secure Provisioning Solution is independent from the
manufacturing process, the supply chain and the chip architecture. SoCs
and devices can be provisioned with sensitive assets, including unique
authentication keys for any required security level throughout the
lifecycle of the product. The company’s Secure Provisioning Solution has
strong traction in the market, selected by multiple customers who now
provide a high-level of protection without needing to create a new
infrastructure for provisioning.

Inside Secure is a recognized leader in provisioning services and secure
silicon IP. The company’s Secure Provisioning Solution offers secure
provisioning in a variety of formats, including product/appliance,
hosted service, and hybrid models, allowing customers to trade off
upfront costs versus recurring costs. The solution allows deployment at
all stages of a device lifecycle, including chip manufacturing, device
manufacturing and in the field.

“We have a long history working with Inside Secure on many successful
projects for very important customers,” said Patrick Dou, vice president
at NationalChip. “We have chosen to work with Inside Secure again using
their provisioning solution because it allows us to provide a very
strong level of security to our customers while also giving us with full
life cycle management and real-time authenticated software updates.”
