Tuesday 29 June 2004 11:55 CET | News

Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) and ARM will collaborate on a security solution that will include ARM TrustZone technology.

The collaboration with ARM is part of TIs overall strategy to help address growing security concerns among service providers, consumers and wireless original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). TI will implement the ARM TrustZone technology on its OMAP platform and family of TCS Chipsets by using the recently licensed ARM1176JZF-S core. As phone theft has become a growing problem, securing information stored and protecting a phones identity has become even more critical. Software security vulnerability can result in profitable theft of reprogrammable phones, illegal upgrades and network switching, and network vulnerability. TI is leading the market in addressing the handset security need with a silicon-based security solution. The ARM TrustZone technology will help expand TIs leadership position by providing more handset protection as new applications emerge. ARM TrustZone technology complements TIs wireless system solutions technology to support wireless network protection from malicious attack and to help secure e-commerce transactions, downloadable applications, games and media content. TrustZone technology also enables protection of code and data across the entire memory architecture. The ARM1176JZ-S and ARM1176JZF-S CPUs are the first ARM cores to incorporate the ARM TrustZone technology, enhancing security in portable consumer devices using open operating system applications, such as smart phones, PDAs and other wireless devices.
