ODSI provides new security models with the properties and benefits of both hardware and software approaches. These models deliver only certified and proved minimal properties for isolation, with the goal of being used in mass production in all domains that require strong context isolation as M2M, IoT and network infrastructure sharing.
Project objectives and main impact
Embedded electronics demand produces more and more complex systems which favour the appearance of new security threats.
In order to comply with different ecosystems, a generic framework that addresses end-to-end security properties and multiple level of security is built for guaranteeing a high level of trust.
However, traditional methods for reaching this level of trust require high effort and time consuming engineering activities, in particular if the applications require certification.
So, ODSI targets to build trusted proven systems within reduced time-to-market, flexibility to change or upgrade constraints without losing the constructed proofs.
This concept will allow the manufacturers to decide on their own how to distribute security objectives between the hardware and software components of their platforms.
The industry target is to deliver a common level of security, agnostic regarding the nature of the processor, with a minimal software interface (API), to implement their services in proven and isolated environments.
