Implementing comprehensive security measures on embedded systems is no longer an option, it is an essential deliverable. However, for system developers ensuring the required level of security isn’t always easy or obvious. Hence, ST is creating new communities and content designed to make security on embedded systems more accessible. There are resources for enthusiasts, experts, those familiar with STM32Trust, or those simply looking for reference documents.
Embedded Security Overview
If you want to get an overarching grasp of the subject matter, the webinar entitled “Understand proven STM32 security in 1 hour” is a good starting point. It guides viewers through the STM32Trust security ecosystem.,which is designed to improve security in products that use our STM32 microcontrollers and STSAFE secure elements. The session also includes information about practical use cases on ST reference packages and the seamless implementation of a Secure Boot and Secure Firmware Update.
Online Learning: Fundamentals of Embedded System Security
Introduction to Security
Understand the main concepts and components of a secure embedded system and discover the comprehensive step-by-step security online training offers with MOOC sessions based on STM32 devices.
Basics of Cryptography
The course introduces the main concepts behind cryptography (symmetric and asymmetric). The lessons focus on usage examples that mostly tackle today’s common algorithms (TDES, AES, RSA, ECC, DH, ECDH).
How To Define Security Needs
Understand today’s main security risks within embedded systems and discover the STM32Trust framework.
Engineers must develop secure embedded solutions and must know what to protect; the STM32Trust ecosystem and free solution take a lot of the guesswork and frustration out of that process. It allows teams to design new secure applications and obtain certifications like PSA and SESIP rapidly.
STM32 Ecosystem and Embedded Security
STM32 Security in Practice
Understand how to efficiently integrate Secure Boot and Secure Firmware Update (SBSFU). Moreover, students will also follow the step-by-step guide to implement a secure bootloader with firmware authentication.
STM32 Security Tips
Engineers will find additional coursework on STM32 security features that target day-to-day developments. The lesson tackles secure operations on an STM32L5 and how to avoid common mistakes. For instance, it’s important to implement a memory isolation scheme that doesn’t hinder normal operations.
Secure Cloud Connectivity with SBSFU and STSAFE-A110
The X-CUBE-AWS software package shows how to implement secure communications on Amazon Web Service by combining STM32 and STSAFE-A110.
