    • Server authentication
    • Client authentication
    • Domain name verification
    • Runtime socket upgrade to secure socket – STARTTLS
  • Secure HTTP server (HTTPS)
  • Trusted root-certificate catalog – Verifies that the CA used by the application is trusted and known secure content delivery
  • TI root-of-trust public key – Hardware-based mechanism that allows authenticating TI as the genuine origin of a given content using asymmetric keys
  • Secure content delivery – Allows encrypted file transfer to the system using asymmetric keys created by the device

Code and Data Security:

  • Network passwords and certificates are encrypted and signed.
  • Cloning protection – Application and data files are encrypted by a unique key per device.
  • Access control – Access to application and data files only by using a token provided in file creation time. If an unauthorized access is detected, a tamper protection lock down mechanism takes effect.
  • Secured boot – Authentication of the application image on every boot
  • Code and data encryption – User application and data files can be encrypted in the serial flash
  • Code and data authentication – User Application and data files are authenticated with a public key certificate
  • Offloaded crypto library for asymmetric keys, including the ability to create key-pair, sign and verify data buffer
  • Recovery mechanism

Device Security:

  • Separate execution environments – Application processor and network processor run on separate Arm cores
  • Initial secure programming – Allows for keeping the content confidential on the production line
  • Debug security
    • JTAG lock
    • Debug ports lock
  • True random number generator

Figure 9-1 shows the high-level structure of the CC3235S and CC3235SF devices. The application image, user data, and network information files (passwords, certificates) are encrypted using a device-specific key.
