Securing data on connected embedded devices is a top priority among software developers and architects today. It seems with every passing week another major data breach is announced. Embedded software developers are quickly gaining the tools and technology to design safer, more secure connected devices. Developers can use ARM TrustZone technology to secure data in their designs in addition to embedded virtualization via a Type 1 Hypervisor to combine secure data, connectivity, and real-time operation through a real-time operating system (RTOS) and open source software to take full advantage of emerging multicore and heterogeneous system-on-chip (SoC) architectures.
Let me be clear, as an embedded software product manager for Mentor Graphics, I believe there are numerous use cases in which architecting a safe, secure, and reliable Type 1 embedded hypervisor is the best way to go. Not only that, but a hypervisor built on top of Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and ARM TrustZone [...]
