Security vendor Inside Secure says that it has upgraded its SafeZone FIPS software cryptographic module to improve security for a broad array of mobile devices.
Inside's enhanced SafeZone cryptographic software enables developers for the first time to build FIPS 140-2 certified applications for Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) based on ARM TrustZone frameworks.
A TEE isolates sensitive operations on smart connected devices from the standard OS, providing a safer execution environment for these applications to run within. TEEs have already been deployed in more than 100 million devices, and many popular smartphones now incorporate TEE technology.
Inside added that it has worked with Trustonic to ensure that its SafeZone FIPS cryptography module and toolkits integrate with the Trustonic
"Inside's achievement in delivering technology to accelerate FIPS-compliance with a trusted execution environment demonstrates its leadership and marks an important milestone for the industry in assuring trust in smart connected devices," said Jon Geater, CTO of Trustonic.
