DesignWare tRoot Fx Hardware Secure Modules

The DesignWare® tRoot Fx Hardware Secure Modules (HSMs) are a flexible, highly configurable hardware and software solution that provides a programmable hardware root of trust to secure high value embedded targets. It is designed for fast and easy integration within a larger system context.

The tRoot Hardware Secure Modules (HSMs) with Root of Trust enable connected devices to securely and uniquely identify and authenticate themselves to create secure channels for remote device management and service deployment. The flexible tRoot Fx HSM family includes fully programmable and highly configurable solutions that enable designers to tune the HSM to their exact requirements, while the pre-built tRoot Vx HSM family offers a defined security boundary for a complete, drop-in security solution. tRoot HSMs provide robust hardware-enforced protection while maintaining a high level of performance through cryptographic acceleration and offer designers options to create solutions with the most efficient combination of power, size and performance. tRoot HSMs provide a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) to protect sensitive information and processing, and implement security-critical functions such as secure boot, storage, debug, anti-tampering and key management required throughout the device life cycle.
