APPLICATION NOTE 5696

Protect Your Designs from Malware with the DeepCover MAXQ1050 Secure Microcontroller

By: Christophe Tremlet

Abstract: Malware injection has become a critical threat to embedded systems. Implementing an asymmetric cryptography-based secure boot is the best protection against this class of attacks. This application note describes the key principles of such a secure boot and explains how to implement it with the DeepCover® MAXQ1050 secure microcontroller.
