Side-channel Attacks on Embedded System Devices Boosting Demand for Embedded Security

Side-channel attacks extract processed data from a chip or a system, and use them to deduce sensitive information such as cryptographic keys, and messages, among others. An embedded security system implements multiple kinds of security in side channel analysis to identify potential embedded security threats.

It also implements security features for systems-engineering levels that are effective in preventing hackers from interacting with the software. Side-channel attacks can be varied for users, service providers, and manufacturers.

Embedded security solutions are capable of handling many functions, such as conducting end-to-end threat analysis, design and test for security, security testing, securing applications, and real-time computing data, which makes them ideal for use in a variety of applications. These factors are anticipated to contribute to the growth of the embedded security market in the coming years.
