Intrinsic ID CEO Pim Tuyls to Speak on IoT Security at 15th International SoC Conference October 19

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Oct. 16, 2017 – Intrinsic ID®, the world’s leading provider of digital authentication technology for Internet of Things security and embedded applications, today announced Chief Executive Officer Pim Tuyls will appear at the 15th International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference, Exhibit & Workshops, to be held October 18-19 at the University of California, Irvine. He will deliver a presentation entitled “Authenticate Everything” and appear on a panel entitled “Security Issues and Challenges in The Next Generation of SoCs & IoT Solutions.”

“The Internet of Things growth continues to accelerate, and our International SoC Conference is a great forum for examining how IoT and its security-related challenges affect the way we gather data and use it in almost everything that we do,” said Farhad Mafie, SoC Conference chairman and president and CEO of Savant Company, Inc. “I am very excited that we are able to hear from security experts and leaders such as Pim on how Intrinsic ID and other leading companies are addressing IoT security challenges in various applications via their individual talks as well as in an informative panel discussion that will be held on the same day.”

In his presentation entitled “Authenticate Everything,” Tuyls will address how, as the Internet of Things approaches 50 billion devices with no slowing in sight, the flexibility to protect IoT devices at any point in the supply chain comes at an increasingly high cost because of limitations in traditional key delivery methods. In contrast, an SRAM-PUF-based approach offers flexibility and reduced cost without compromising security because, unlike traditional methods, with SRAM PUF-based key generation the root keys never leave the chip itself. This approach enables not only security management, but the flexibility to invoke that security in IoT endpoints at any point in the supply chain, at a cost appropriate to the use case.

Tuyls will also appear as part of the panel discussion “Security Issues and Challenges in The Next Generation of SoCs & IoT Solutions.” Other panelists will be Marc Canel, vice president, Security Technologies for Arm; and Louis Parks, president and CEO of SecureRF. The panel will be moderated by SoC Conference Chairman Farhad Mafie. Details about the conference are available online at the conference website.
