Designing for Security in SoC-driven Supply Chains

Disaggregation of the SoC design ecosystem and fragmentation of the global electronics supply chain pose increasing vulnerabilities in electronics devices that increase risks in security. Such vulnerabilities will grow rapidly with billions of living SoCs in connected IoT devices operating 24/7.

This presentation will explore a novel approach on Secure SoC Design for managing Supply Chain Security by enabling to connect unique ID SoCs into a server, track them at each step in the supply chain and remotely provision them at any point in their lifecycle from wafer manufacturing to updates of SoCs in connected devices.
