Using the PSA Certified IoT Security Framework

Skip to content

PSA Certified is providing a common language for the industry, allowing the entire value chain to work to the same requirements. The PSA Certified framework offers a standardized approach from initial IoT security design and implementation to security evaluation. It also provides a comprehensive set of free resources to help you build-in best practice security from the beginning of product development. Built by industry experts, it’s been adopted by a rapidly growing ecosystem of silicon vendors, system software providers and device manufacturers. 

A Simple Four Step Process

The PSA Certified framework breaks down security design and implementation into a simple four-step process, reducing complexities and ensuring you build-in right-size security without excessive costs or increased time-to-market.

A Layered Approach to Security

PSA Certified takes a layered approach to IoT security offering certification for all components of a connected device, ensuring that each element has built-in security. Certifications are consumable meaning device manufacturers can leverage expertise from the value chain and build on certified silicon and software. PSA Certified status can also be reused with other security frameworks and evaluation schemes. For example device manufacturers can reuse their certificates to show mappings to regulations and silicon vendors can use their certificates to demonstrate they have a secure Root of Trust suitable for other certification schemes.

PSA Certified provides three levels of silicon security assurance to ensure right size security can be built into products. PSA Certified Level 1 is available for silicon, system software and endpoint device manufacturers, while PSA Certified Level 2 and PSA Certified Level 3 evaluate the silicon Root of Trust.

Join the Ecosystem That Is Revolutionizing Embedded Security

The PSA Certified ecosystem is changing IoT security, making security accessible to all. With a comprehensive security framework and layered approach to certification, the barrier to security is lowered and the whole ecosystem can align to a central anchor for all security functions – the PSA Root of Trust.
