    Embedded Security Compliance Solution for Iot Applications

IAR Systems and Secure Thingz' Compliance Suite gives developers and organizations the security development tools, practical guidance, and knowledge to quickly develop applications that comply with security legislation, such as the EN 303 645 consumer IoT security standard, the 13 best practices from the UK and Australia, and the evolving U.S. Cybersecurity Improvement Act (NISTIR 8259). The Renesas RX MCU featuring the Trusted Secure IP module is the world’s first general-purpose MCU to obtain NIST FIPS 140-2 CMVP Level 3 certification. “The Compliance Suite for RX ensures all customers can quickly gain practical implementation knowledge and smoothly tackle development to realize their solution while ensuring security compliance,” said Daryl Khoo, Vice President, Marketing, IoT Platform Business Division at Renesas.

Compliance Suite provides a set of security development tools that are all integrated with the development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench

Thanks to the C-Trust security development tool and combined with Preconfigured Security Contexts included with Compliance Suite, developers are able to automatically provide secure and encrypted code. Besides, Compliance Suite for Renesas RX includes practical guidance through a set of courses led by Secure Thingz' in-house security experts, an overview of legislation as well as practical guides on how to achieve security compliance. Compliance with new legislation for Iot security and privacy is a challenge for developers working with embedded applications. The Consumer IoT Security Standard EN 303 645, based on the 13 Best Practices, is widely regarded as the security benchmark for Consumer IoT. Compliance Suite allows organizations to quickly build applications with these fundamental requirements included, ensuring the security of existing applications and adding security guidelines for new functionality to guarantee the future of next generation embedded applications.
