ON Semiconductor Announces Secure End-to-End Bluetooth Solution Using Veridify Technology

ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, has announced the immediate availability of Veridify´s Public Key security tools for the RSL10, the industry´s lowest power Flash-based Bluetooth® Low Energy radio System on Chip (SoC), the company said.

Veridify Security´s tools are available in a CMSIS-Pack, giving developers a familiar and fast implementation path to protect their RSL10 solutions with critical security features including device-to-device authentication, data protection, and secure firmware updates.

The RSL10 radio family offers built-in security features, including an AES-128 encryption hardware block and, for IP protection, the ability to lock the debug interface against potential intruders. These ´on processor´ features are complemented by Veridify´s technology to provide identification, authentication, and data protection between devices in the field. An RSL10 radio running Veridify´s public key tools can exchange their signed public keys, authenticate the public key owner, create an ephemeral mutual secret, and then use this shared secret with the AES128 engine to encrypt data between the device and its user.

Devices running Veridify Security tools, like the RSL10, can take advantage of DOME™, Veridify´s zero-touch onboarding, blockchain ownership management, and enrolment solution. Veridify´s security solutions are ISO 26262 ASIL D certified, have a very small code footprint, and can be implemented in software-only, as demonstrated on the RSL10´s Arm® Cortex®-M3 processor. Security protocols built with Veridify tools run many times faster than legacy methods.

The Bluetooth IoT Development Kit CMSIS-Pack containing Veridify´s Public Key security tools is now available for free download at onsemi.com/rsl10.
