BroadKey: Hardware Root-of-Trust Software for Authentication of IoT Devices

BroadKey, a key management software solution for Internet of Things security, allows device manufacturers & OEMs to secure IoT-connected products with a unique secret key or identity, without adding security-dedicated silicon. Unlike many IoT security approaches, BroadKey need not be loaded at silicon production, but can be installed later in the supply chain or even retrofitted on deployed devices. BroadKey is based on Intrinsic ID’s patented SRAM PUF technology, which extracts identifiers from uniqueness inherent to every piece of silicon. BroadKey dynamically reconstructs on-chip secret keys without storing them, and the keys cannot be cloned, copied or extracted from the device.

Applications
• Secure Key Storage: smart cards, gov’t devices
• Authentication: consumer, automotive, gateways, medical
• Flexible Key Provisioning: IoT devices, deployed devices
• Anti-Counterfeiting of payment cards
• Hardware-Software Binding in biometric devices
• IoT Supply Chain Protection

Advantages
• Hardware-Based Security: Aligns with U.S. Dep’t of Homeland Security strategy for IoT
• Available: For all MCUs, sensors, flash devices
• Low Cost: Low-footprint software fits smallest, resource-constrained devices
• Flexible: Keys provisioned anywhere in supply chain
