Sequitur Labs Inc. and Scalys Collaborate to Bring Secure IoT Edge Solutions to Market

SEATTLE, February 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Sequitur Labs and Scalys, a maker of high performance, scalable systems signed a MoU to bring a hardware/software security solution for use in IoT devices across multiple industries and devices.

Reducing Time-to-market for Secure Devices

Recognizing the need for stronger security, Scalys and Sequitur Labs today announced a collaboration to reduce time-to-market for secure IoT and embedded products. The joint hardware/software solution makes it easier for IoT solution developers to use advanced hardware security features available on a variety of Scalys platforms starting with the Scalys LS1012 based on NXP’s QorIQTM LS1012 single core 64-bit Arm® Cortex®-A53 core processor. The two companies will also collaborate on joint marketing and sales efforts.

Sequitur Labs’ embedded security platform, EmSparkTM, delivers capabilities enabling device makers to make use of hardware security features and create trustworthy products. These include the ability to establish a hardware root of trust, an immutable and trustworthy device ID, and payload attestation for secure firmware update. EmSpark also provides a suite of pre-built security applications designed to address the most critical security use cases. It allows developers and device OEMs to focus on developing their applications, gain time-to-market efficiencies, and lower the cost of security implementation. The Scalys LS 1012 module incorporates NXP’s Trust Architecture with features like secure-boot, key-management, secure storage, tamper-detection, run-time Integrity checking and hardware isolation, support for random number generation and cryptography. The module is optimized for battery-backed or USB-powered, space-constrained networking and IoT applications such as secure edge IoT gateways.

The two companies are showing a demo of the joint solution at Embedded World 2018 - Hall 4A / 4A-311. OEMs and developers can evaluate the joint solution using the Scalys SES-LS1012 (Grapeboard) SBC starting March 31st 2018. The Scalys Grapeboard features:

  • QorIQTM LS1012 single core 64-bit Arm® Cortex®-A53 processor
  • 800MHz core operation
  • Raspberry PI 3 Form-Factor and connector
  • 2x 1.0 Gbe
  • USB3.0 and USB2.0
  • SATA
  • WiFi b/g/n

Joint Solution Features

  • Streamlined implementation of Arm® TrustZone®-based secure enclave available as part of NXP’s Trust Architecture
  • Trusted boot process with multi-stage key derivation
  • Streamlined implementation of trusted execution environment
  • Integrated with hardware crypto accelerators for efficient crypto operations
  • Easy to use APIs for accessing secure functions and sensitive material
  • Key and certificate management
  • Security applications for executing secure firmware update, secure storage and communications

“It is important for Sequitur to work with device platforms that have correctly implemented hardware security. Combining our solution with the Scalys Grapeboard makes it perfect platform for OEMs to develop secure devices,” said Philip Attfield, CEO of Sequitur Labs.

“For Scalys, it’s important to have a good embedded security platform implemented to create trustworthy products. The combination of Sequitur embedded security platform and our secure communication products makes it possible to realize secure edge devices,” said Hans Klos, CEO of Scalys.


[...] The combination of Sequitur embedded security platform and our (Scalys) secure communication products makes it possible to realize secure edge devices.
