Secure Software for the Internet of Things
What is FIPS
Why is it important for IoT / IoMT devices?
Federal procurement agencies are under a mandate to require proof of FIPS validation for any product that connects to or interoperates with a government information network. This requirement is meant to ensure the cryptography utilized within any security protocols has been independently reviewed, tested, and verified to meet NIST encryption standards.
With the rapid adoption of IoT and IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) throughout society, the need for security has grown exponentially. DoD and VA hospitals require manufacturers of connected beds, patient monitors, surgical devices and many more to have met FIPS validation requirements.
HIPAA rules require encryption to protect patient data. FIPS validation ensures the encryption meets NIST requirements keeping patient data secure.
Does Allegro have a FIPS 140-2 module I can embed into my design?
Yes, Allegro’s ACE Toolkit provides IoT manufacturers with cryptography specifically engineered to meet the rigors of embedded computing in addition to meeting the latest NIST requirements for FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validation.
All Allegro AE toolkits are highly portable across RTOS and processor families. Delivered in ANSI-C source code all products utilize a field-proven abstraction layer to enable portability with any RTOS, TCP/IP stack, and file system environment. Interface files for leading RTOS environments are provided.
