Intrinsic-ID to Host IoT Security Summit in Silicon Valley: “Establishing Trust for the Internet of Things”

Participating Companies Include: Comcast, GuardTime, Global Sign, Intrinsic-ID, InvenSense, Mentor Graphics, MediumOne, Microsemi, NXP, Renesas, VMWare and WindRiver

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA  – October 18 2016:  Intrinsic-ID, a digital authentication company and inventor of SRAM Physical Unclonable Function (SRAM PUF), today announced it will host its first Security Summit, bringing together electronics industry thought leaders to discuss best practices for Establishing Trust for the Internet of Things.  The summit will take place on October 24th at Michaels at Shoreline in Mountain View, California from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm (Pacific Time).

“The Internet of Things is rapidly transforming our lives, placing increased demands for security and authentication,” said Mr. Pim Tuyls, president and CEO of Intrinsic-ID.  “Intrinsic-ID is taking a leadership role in examining the special security needs of the Internet of Things throughout the Silicon-to-Cloud eco-system and encouraging partners to build solutions around SRAM PUF as a key enabling technology.  Our PUF technology no longer appears in just a single point product, it is quickly becoming an integral part of a rich tapestry of digital security solutions.”

The summit will unfold in three sessions starting with the semiconductor and operating systems view, which will include presentations from Microsemi, Wind River Systems and VMware. The second session will focus on IoT applications with representatives from Guardtime, GlobalSign and Medium One talking about blockchain solutions, device identity and sensor data analytics.   The supply chain perspective will be highlighted in the third session with presentations from Comcast, the prpl Foundation and Mentor Graphics.

In addition to informative presentations from industry experts, the summit will include live product demonstrations and networking opportunities, concluding with a beer tasting reception, featuring beer from Devil’s Canyon Brewery.  Other event sponsors include:  InvenSense, NXP, Renesas.

PUF Technology

Every transistor in an integrated circuit has slightly different physical properties due to deep-submicron manufacturing process variations.   These process variations are uncontrollable during manufacturing, making the physical properties of a device unique, like a fingerprint, and unable to be copied or cloned.  Intrinsic-ID’s core SRAM PUF technology securely and reliably extracts a device-unique cryptographic key without storing any sensitive key information in non-volatile memory (NVM).  This key is invisible to attackers, unique per device and can be leveraged to authenticate the chip, the data on the chip, the device and even the whole system.   SRAM PUF is a scalable and flexible security technology that can be applied to all chips, microcontrollers and CPUs without changing the hardware.

About Intrinsic-ID

Intrinsic-ID is the world’s leading digital authentication company and the inventor of SRAM Physical Unclonable Function or SRAM PUF. Intrinsic-ID leverages inherent manufacturing variations in chips to create unique IDs and keys to authenticate chips, data, devices and systems. Since a unique ID can be extracted easily from SRAM with Intrinsic-ID’s technology, adding authentication and key provisioning is much less expensive than with current methods; no additional hardware is needed. Due to the low cost of implementing SRAM PUF and the critical need for security, Intrinsic-ID’s authentication technology is ideally positioned to address the needs of the fast-growing IoT market. Intrinsic-ID’s solutions are used worldwide to validate payment systems, secure connectivity, authenticate sensors and protect sensitive government and military data and systems.
