Secure-IC is thrilled to announce its embedded cybersecurity solution SecuryzrTM iSE (integrated Secure Element) 900 was integrated in MediaTek’s flagship smartphone chip, the Dimensity 9300. Secure-IC’s SecuryzrTM ensures the protection of sensitive data and critical processes within the chipset, preventing unauthorized access and safeguarding the system’s integrity. The adoption of SecuryzrTM, combined with Secure-IC’s system-level certification support, allows MediaTek’s SoC to be Common Criteria level 4+ (AVA_VAN.5) ready. Following the success of this project, Secure-IC will continuously provide MediaTek with further security solutions.
MediaTek is a global fabless semiconductor company leader in developing innovative systems-on-chip (SoC) for mobile, home entertainment, connectivity and IoT products. Released in November 2023, the MediaTek Dimensity 9300 is redefining mobile computing with its industry-leading features.
Since its creation, Secure-IC has been dedicated to delivering the forefront of security innovations to the market. The integration of Secure-IC’s solution in the MediaTek Dimensity 9300 marks a significant milestone. SecuryzrTM iSE 900 series, from Secure-IC, fortify the MediaTek Dimensity 9300 with an advanced layer of security. This technology ensures the integrity of the system by working as the Root of Trust (RoT) and provides a Secure Processing capability and (SPU – Secure Processing Unit), featuring renowned robustness and reliability.
As the Secure Enclave within the MediaTek Dimensity 9300, SecuryzrTM iSE 900 plays a pivotal role in safeguarding critical operations throughout the device’s lifecycle, such as Secure Boot, Firmware Updates, Key Management, Cryptographic Services. It continually monitors these secure processes to ensure their resilience against potential disruptions such as Cyber Physical Attacks, mitigating potential threats with utmost reliability. In parallel, Secure-IC has delivered robust software solutions, both at integrated Secure Element and Host levels, including advanced security lifecycle management capabilities and a secure operating system (OS). On top of acting as the Trusted anchor and Root of Trust, SecuryzrTM iSE 900 is also leveraged to allow sensitive processes and applications to run in an isolated secure area.
The adoption of SecuryzrTM integrated Secure Element, coupled with complementary Secure-IC’s elaboration of complete Certification case enables MediaTek’s SoC to be Common Criteria level 4+ ready (CC-PP-0117 - Secure Sub-System in System-on-Chip). Secure-IC leverages its notorious experience and history in multiple certification schemes, and as an active player in certification and standardization bodies, to support MediaTek’s flagship smartphone product.
By harnessing their collective expertise and innovation, Secure-IC and MediaTek aim at pioneering groundbreaking secure solutions that will contribute significantly to the ever-evolving landscape of connected devices.
