Driving the Adoption of HD Video on Smartphones and Tablets, Discretix Enters the ARM TrustZone Ready Program
Discretix's field-proven content protection and embedded security solutions now designed to complement the ARM® TrustZone® Ready Program, making it easier for SoC manufacturers and OEMs to deploy these solutions and pass industry certifications
SANTA CLARA, CA – September 19, 2012 – Discretix, the leading provider of field-proven content protection and embedded security solutions today announced that is has joined the ARM TrustZone Ready Program. ARM TrustZone technology is already integrated into major system-on-chip (SoC) platforms and widely deployed on many of the world’s best-selling devices. Discretix’ existing content protection and embedded security solutions are now available and aligned with the program, helping SoC manufacturers and OEMs to accelerate implementation of content protection solutions based on TrustZone.
To meet these security requirements a system-wide approach to security is required. ARM TrustZone technology provides an efficient and flexible foundation around which SoC manufacturers are able to construct rich security capabilities into their chipsets. Furthermore, Trusted Execution Environments (such as those specified by industry bodies like GlobalPlatform) are increasingly being integrated in such chipsets to make these capabilities available to 3rd party application developers.
Discretix offers two solutions designed to leverage ARM TrustZone technology:
“Consumer demand for HD video content, for which content owners require copyright protection, is the primary driver for robust security on mobile platforms, such as smart phones and tablets,” said Robert Brown, Director of Marketing, Secure Services Division, ARM. “ARM is working with leading suppliers, such as Discretix, to ensure that ARM partners have access to solutions that enable the broad ecosystem to meet future certification requirements and achieve the necessary security measures.”
