TCG announces DICE Architecture

 

Trusted Computing Group has released the Device Identifier Composition Engine (DICE) Architecture for securing resource-constrained devices that make up the Internet of Things. The DICE Architecture provides critical security and privacy benefits to IoT and embedded systems where traditional Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) may be impractical, while also enabling support for those devices with a TPM for additional security benefits. Security capabilities this new approach enables include strong device identity, attestation of device firmware and security policy, and safe deployment and verification of software updates, which often are a source of malware and other attacks. The DICE Architecture, with its hardware root of trust for measurement, breaks up the boot process into layers, and creates unique secrets and a measure of integrity for each layer. This means if malware is present, the device is automatically re-keyed and secrets are protected. […]
