Micron Technology has launched, what the company claims is, the industry’s first silicon-based security-as-a-service platform for IoT edge devices.
Micron Technology has launched what it says is the industry’s first silicon-based security-as-a-service platform for IoT edge devices.

Micron Authenta Key Management Service (KMS) platform provides a cloud-first deployment model for a wide range of applications. Installed Authenta-enabled devices can be switched on through a cloud-based service, mitigating a number of the largest challenges and complexities in an “everything connected” system.

“Securing a diverse set of IoT edge devices through the complete product lifecycle - from the supply chain to in-field management - requires a novel, simple, scalable and cost-effective approach,” says Amit Gattani, senior director of embedded segment marketing for Micron’s Embedded Business Unit. “Authenta KMS provides a trusted and unique silicon-to-cloud service for all ‘connected things’ using Authenta-enabled flash devices.”

Authenta KMS features hardware root of trust embedded in NAND and NOR flash devices, allows them to safeguard device functionality at the silicon level.

Authenta KMS works beside existing efforts to protect IoT networks with secure element functions in Authenta-enabled flash devices. Authenta KMS security-as-a- service platform allows installed secure flash devices to be activated and managed at the edge through a cloud-based service. This capability enables platform-hardening and device protection extending from the manufacturing supply chain to in-field installation and management.
