Solutions for Secured Authentication and Nodes


Easily implement authentication solutions or create an advanced network of cloud-connected nodes for the Google Cloud IoT Platform. We provide the hardware, software and tools needed to create smart, connected and secure systems with rapid access to Google Cloud Platform's cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning infrastructure. With intuitive development tools on both the node and cloud edges, you can create better, smarter products that respond more naturally to the needs of end equipment users.

Authentication Solutions

Implement a secure and scalable hardware root of trust authentication for your Google Cloud IoT Core connection. The solution provides a cost-effective approach with side attack channel and tampering protections on the private keys.

  • Provide a unique, trusted, protected and verifiable identity
  • Light and simple code implementation based on JSON Web Token (JWT)
  • No TLS dependence due to the JWT architecture

Smart Secure Nodes

Build a secure cloud-connected node quickly and easily with a cost-effective 8-bit MCU, pre-certified Wi-Fi® module and a secure element for authentication. Our intuitive toolchain allows seamless integration of all three components into a working solution very quickly.

  • Easily configure your system with our GUI-based code generation tools
  • Secure access the cloud with easy-to-use pre-certified connectivity modules
  • Create a real-time control system with minimal code

Training


Title Description
Secure Boot with ATECC608A Learn how to architect a secure boot with Microchip's ATECC608A secure element. It offers a strong security implementation by verifying the signed boot image of a small microcontroller with a truly immutable public key kept in the secure element.
Secure Download Firmware Update (DFU) Learn how to implement a secure, Over-the-Air (OTA) firmware update with a traditional microcontroller using a Microchip secure element, such as the ATECC608A. It's a simple-to-use cost-efficient and robust security implementation that protects the key by verifying the signed code comes from a legitimate source. The key remains protected by leveraging the ATECC608A secure element. Both asymmetric and symmetric architectures are covered in the video.
Cloud IoT Core Authentication Use Case Check out how Google Cloud IoT, combined with the ATECC608A secure element, strengthen device-to-cloud authentication. The implementation is particularly interesting as it offers tremendous flexibility with an agnostic choice of the TLS by leveraging the JWT token. In addition, the optimized code size of the authentication enables connectivity and security for very small microcontrollers.
Secure Boot for Small Microcontrollers Learn how to implement a secure boot architecture on very small microcontrollers using the ATECC608A secure element. Keys are protected from users, factory operators and equipment as well as software.
Hardware Root of Trust by Google Check out how to improve IoT security by securing the authentication between Google Cloud IoT core and IoT devices using a secure element (ATECC608A).
Secure DFU In this use case example, we will demonstrate the authentication of a firmware update. The example we've chosen uses asymmetric cryptography to establish a chain of trust to validate the update.
