As IoT devices grow in number and sophistication, so too do the exploits attackers use to access, manipulate and control them. But, imagine a world where network-based cyberattacks are virtually non-existent.
Read this white paper to learn how CoreGuardTM can make that world a reality by ensuring the security, safety, and privacy of IoT devices.

Delivering security in IoT means ensuring applications are executed only as intended. Accomplishing this requires a focus on both communications and computing security. Denying buffer overflows, control-flow hijacking, and code injections, as well as safeguarding end-to-end encryption and compartmentalization, can only be achieved when we look toward solutions that combine both software and hardware capabilities.
Ensuring safety in IoT is all about preventing cyberattacks in the digital space from precipitating into physical-world consequences. Pacemakers, autonomous vehicles and weapons systems can all be hijacked by hostile agents or malfunction due to human error in programming. In either event, hardening these systems through a combination of software and hardware solutions is the only way to maintain the safety of their users.
Protecting privacy in the IoT space—whether that means keeping confidential personal, corporate, or military information from exfiltration—requires not just an understanding of which data is sensitive, but an understanding of who should be able to access it and how. Since software can be manipulated by nefarious actors, software alone can’t maintain a list of who can access what data. However, a combination of software and hardware can.
The majority of cyberattacks exploit bugs in software and on average there are 15 bugs per thousand lines of code. Today's cybersecurity solutions focus on building defensive software around our networks and applications. However, in reality, they only increase vulnerability by adding yet another layer of inherently flawed software.
CoreGuard silicon IP is designed to prevent the exploitation of software vulnerabilities and to empower processors to defend themselves in real-time from all network-based attacks.
Based on eight years of development, CoreGuard is the ultimate solution to protect embedded systems.
