Smart city and industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications that leverage the LoRaWAN network require processing for sensor aggregation, control actuation and for operation of the radio stack. The radio stack utilizes two Advanced Encryption Standard AES-128 cryptographic keys for security operations—one to authenticate packet data to the network server and one to decrypt the packet when it arrives at the application server. Cypress' PSoC 6 MCUs ensure that these keys are only used by crypto operations and are not accessible by other programs. The radio stack conducts signing and encrypting in the MCUs' isolated execution environment, protecting sensitive information. In addition, the PSoC 6 MCUs' secure boot capability ensures that they power up in a secure state. Along with these security features, PSoC 6 MCUs provide BLE for off-channel communication and additional processing capacity that can be used for sensor hub functionality, providing a one-chip LoRaWAN host MCU.
"When we looked around the IoT MCU universe, we identified Cypress' PSoC
6 as the ultimate low-power, secure MCU to match with the LoRa radio,"
The ESCRYPT LoRaWAN Key Management System (KMS) is a Cloud based security service for lifecycle key management in any LoRaWAN ecosystem. It is use used to securely provision and register devices onto any LoRaWAN network and to securely store keying material for the LoRaWAN ecosystem. Keying material is never exposed and only authorized users gain access to sensitive IoT data.
"Edge devices that use Semtech's LoRa® devices and wireless
radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) need to be secure and
protect the data that they generate and process," said
Cypress and ESCRYPT are demonstrating a secure PSoC 6 MCU-based
LoRa-based module from partner Onethinx that connects to the Cross
Domain Development Kit (XDK), a smart and wirelessly transmitting
multi-sensor module by
About PSoC 6
PSoC 6 is the industry's lowest power, most flexible MCU with built-in Bluetooth Low Energy wireless connectivity and integrated hardware-based security in a single device. Software-defined peripherals can be used to create custom analog front-ends (AFEs) or digital interfaces for innovative system components such as electronic-ink displays. The architecture offers flexible wireless connectivity options, including fully integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5.0. The PSoC 6 MCU architecture features the latest generation of Cypress' industry-leading CapSense® capacitive-sensing technology, enabling modern touch and gesture-based interfaces that are robust and reliable. The architecture is supported by Cypress' PSoC Creator™ Integrated Design Environment (IDE) and the expansive Arm ecosystem. Designers can find more information on the PSoC 6 MCU architecture at http://www.cypress.com/PSoC6.
