Edge Intelligence the Focus at Embedded World

Nothing is beyond the limits of our imagination anymore, and what we are used to seeing in spy movies needs a massive upgrade, in order to go beyond what is now considered the norm.

NUREMBERG, Germany, Mar. 07, 2019 – 

This was evident at Embedded World 2019, where the focus was edge intelligence and internet of things (IoT) security.

There were cameras everywhere capturing images, with demos showing each vendor's capability in neural network processing, inference, and doing something with the information – including smart retail and surveillance. It seemed that everyone was saying: "See how much intelligence we can pack in the camera or sensor or edge-of-network system and see what we can do with it."

Again like last year, security was a top focus at Embedded World, with a number of silicon vendors – Cypress, Microchip Technology, Nordic Semiconductor, Nuvoton Technology, NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics, and Silicon Labs – having achieved Level 1 certification in Arm's new PSA Certified program announced at the conference.

Arm's vice president of its emerging businesses group, Chet Babla, told EE Times, "We have got to help build trust in IoT devices." He said that lack of trust was delaying IoT traction, which is why Arm is providing an independent means of measuring it through its new program.

Arm has partnered with test lab partners Brightsight, an independent security evaluation lab, China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), Riscure and UL, and security experts Prove & Run, to create PSA Certified. Through independent security testing, the idea is to enable IoT solution developers and device makers to establish the security and authenticity of the data collected from diverse IoT devices and enable development and deployment of IoT at scale.

The program is comprised of two elements: a multi-level security robustness scheme and a developer-focused API test suite. The security testing is based on third-party lab-based evaluation that builds trust through independent checking of the generic parts of an IoT platform. This includes Platform Security Architecture (PSA) Roots of Trust (RoT) (the RoT is the source of integrity and confidentiality), the real-time operating system (RTOS), and the device itself.
