In this Frost & Sullivan analysis, the report describes key requirements in the Internet of Things (IoT) security market and presents details of how Rambus addresses these needs through effective, economical and easy-to-deploy IoT security solutions.
In today’s digital, on-demand world, we have instant access to information, products and services. Digitization and digitalization has driven this change, and we are now accustomed to almost instant payments via cards, web services and apps. The development of instantaneous payments between bank accounts is therefore a natural evolution.
Real-time payments (RTP) have been proliferating globally since 1973, increasingly driven by the need for payments clearing to keep pace with today’s on-demand digital world. The success of anti-fraud measures like EMV® chip, EMV® 3-D Secure and payment tokenization to mitigate card-present and -not present fraud in-store and online, has caused fraudsters to look elsewhere for more vulnerable targets.
Designed for central banks and clearing houses to secure account-based transactions, Payment Account Tokenization is a comprehensive software solution that replaces sensitive account numbers with unique tokens and reduces the risk of fraud for transactions including direct credit, direct debit and person-to-person (P2P) payments.
Built around a custom RISC-V CPU, the Rambus CryptoManager Root of Trust (CMRT) is at the forefront of a new category of programmable hardware-based security cores. Siloed from the primary processor, it is designed to securely run sensitive code, processes and algorithms. More specifically, the CMRT provides the primary processor with a full suite of security services, such as secure boot and runtime integrity, remote attestation and broad crypto acceleration for symmetric and asymmetric algorithms.
Robust security starts with the design of the SoC and continues with the manufacturing supply chain. Our CryptoManager™ Security Engine is a high-security silicon IP core that is integrated into the SoC of an intelligent device, such as the application processor of a smartphone or a tablet. It includes a hardware root-of-trust, providing the device with a secure endpoint. The Security Engine addresses critical device security needs, including the provisioning and management of cryptographic keys, authorization of debug modes, and programming across manufacturing stages, including wafer test, package test, device assembly, and return authorization.
