SecureRF has announced it received the “Best Contribution to IoT Security” award at this year’s ARM TechCon. SecureRF was chosen from a number of finalists, in recognition of their public-key solutions, Ironwood Key Agreement Protocol (Ironwood KAP) and Walnut Digital Signature Algorithm (WalnutDSA), which provide future-proof authentication and data protection for low-resource devices, including ARM’s most resource-constrained processors.

A growing number of IoT devices are running on 8-, 16-, and 32-bit processors that do not have the computing and memory resources needed to support contemporary security methods.

An additional challenge for engineers building solutions that will be in the market for ten years or more is the need to address the threat of known quantum computer attacks that will render legacy cryptographic protocols, such as ECC and RSA, broken.

SecureRF addresses these problems with solutions that scale, even in devices with limited computational resources. Available in both hardware and software implementations, Ironwood KAP and WalnutDSA are at least 60 times faster than ECC, consume up to 140 times less energy, and do not require the management of a key database or connection to a network.

With SecureRF’s solutions, engineers using even the smallest ARM Cortex-M series processors can secure their IoT products.

“Our future-proof methods are delivering security solutions to our semiconductor, automotive, and industrial partners today,” said Louis Parks, CEO of SecureRF. “Receiving this notable award further validates that the industry sees the need to deliver strong device-level security that addresses the large number of small things now entering the IoT.”
