Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Becomes First Cell SoC to Get Exquisite Card Identical Security Certification
—Rating Processing Unit can mosey High Assurance Applications Beforehand Only Performed by External Security Chips, Saving OEMs Invoice of Materials Price—
SAN DIEGO — June 25, 2019 — Qualcomm Applied sciences, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Integrated (NASDAQ: QCOM), launched the Qualcomm® Rating Processing Unit, an on- die true ingredient today launched as share of the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 855 Cell Platform, has got Fashioned Standards EAL-4+ security certification, the gold same previous for neat card hardware security assurance and attempting out. The internationally identified certification makes the Snapdragon 855 the main mobile SoC (System on Chip) to attain neat card ranges of security assurance. The constructed-in Qualcomm Rating Processing Unit enables Qualcomm Applied sciences’ OEM customers to construct on Invoice of Materials (BOM) price without sacrificing security and provides the performance and energy improvements that approach with integration into the leading process node.
Examples of most modern Qualcomm Rating Processing Unit utilize cases embody Android Strongbox Keymaster and Gatekeeper. On demonstration at Qualcomm Applied sciences’ imprint at MWC Shanghai this week is one other example of the certified Qualcomm Rating Processing Unit’s capabilities: an constructed-in SIM (iSIM) demo by Qualcomm Applied sciences and Gemalto, a Thales company. Finally, capabilities worship offline price, trusted platform module (TPM) capabilities, transit, electronic ID, and crypto wallets can be conceivable, all without the need of a discrete security chip.
“Finishing the EAL-4+ security certification is a vital milestone in our gallop to bring neat card ranges of security to our Snapdragon customers and users. Expend cases that previously required separate security chips will now be conceivable fully constructed-in in Snapdragon 855 powered devices,” mentioned Jesse Seed, senior director, product management, Qualcomm Applied sciences, Inc. “This certification is a testament to the industry firsts that Snapdragon 855 brings to market and Qualcomm Applied sciences’ persevered leadership in embedded security.”
The certification of the Qualcomm Rating Processing Unit has been permitted by BSI (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik), the German Federal Office for Records Security. BSI’s certification program is identified to be very rigorous and globally identified.
“As the nationwide certification authority, the BSI has proven with this certification that Fashioned Standards (ISO/IEC 15408) is the main probability to substantiate excessive security for complex merchandise worship SoCs. The certification, which uses international and transparent requirements, is a wanted contribution to present a boost to the users’ confidence in the protection of IT merchandise.
Records security is a prerequisite for a profitable digitization,” mentioned Arne Schönbohm, president, German Federal Office for Records Security.
“Bettering security is a top precedence for all of our platform releases,” mentioned Dave Kleidermacher, head of Android security and privacy, Google. “Qualcomm Rating Processing Unit makes it conceivable for our OEMs to meet the stringent Android StrongBox requirements, and we are having a expect seeing how partners implement it to receive profit of key StrongBox functions, much like improvements to credential and price security.”
“We are dedicated to improved constructed-in security with the Qualcomm Rating Processing Unit for accelerating the adoption of embedded SIM (eSIM)-primarily based mostly mobile connectivity amongst a huge diversity of user connected devices,” mentioned Jean-Francois Rubon, director of approach, mobile communications alternatives, Thales.
“This innovation, in step with the GSMA world eSIM specification, is known as a nice enabler for all sorts of inviting merchandise across all markets,” mentioned Jean-Christophe Tisseuil, head of SIM, GSMA. “Exchange identified assurance of the protection within this work is significant and we congratulate Qualcomm Applied sciences on achieving this crucial stage of certification in an modern product.”
Already in production, Snapdragon 855 with the Qualcomm Rating Processing Unit provides improved energy and performance characteristics, as well to industry-leading security functions. It has launched in flagship devices globally and is the industry’s first commercial mobile platform supporting multi-gigabit 5G, on-instrument AI and immersive extended reality (XR) collectively, ushering in a recent decade of modern mobile devices.
Qualcomm invents breakthrough applied sciences that rework how the arena computes, connects and communicates. After we connected the cell phone to the Net, the mobile revolution changed into once born. This day, our innovations are the basis for existence-changing merchandise, experiences, and industries. As we lead the arena to 5G, we envision this subsequent mountainous change in mobile technology spurring a recent generation of luminous, connected devices and enabling contemporary opportunities in connected autos, some distance away shipping of health care companies, and the IoT — along with neat cities, neat properties, and wearables. Qualcomm Integrated entails our licensing trade, QTL, and the nice majority of our patent portfolio. Qualcomm Applied sciences, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Integrated, operates, along with its subsidiaries, severely all of our engineering, analysis and trend capabilities, and severely all of our merchandise and companies companies, along with, the QCT semiconductor trade.
