Methods for Provisioning Security Features in an M33-based MCU Using a Physically Unclonable Function

  • Rob Cosaro, NXP Semiconductors

Security is becoming an important part of all devices connected to the Internet, but along with security comes the complication of provisioning the microcontroller with secret keys. In this session, we’ll discuss the traditional methods of injecting secret keys into OTP, but one of the most interesting part of this presentation is the introduction of a new type of key storage called physically unclonable function, or PUF, and what this brings to security. With PUF, the microcontroller contains the key without having to inject a secret key. This opens up different options that make provisioning easier and more secure.
