There is already a wide range of IoT connected devices in the market today and the selection will continue to rapidly grow. Ensuring the security of these devices is a top priority that poses a major challenge for many companies.
As part of addressing these issues, NEC will adopt the Arm Platform Security Architecture (PSA), an industry standard framework for building securely connected devices, which includes the concept of threat modeling, architectural guidelines and implementation resources that reduce the cost, complexity, and risk associated with IoT security.
NEC is also slated to unveil the development of a box-type accelerator, a specialized device featuring real-time facial recognition that will be securely managed and provisioned by Arm Pelion Device Management. This accelerator will be equipped with the Arm Cortex®-A53 processor. It will accelerate the device's facial recognition process and enable faster analytics by offloading the analytics workload carried out on servers or the cloud, thereby helping to reduce costs for networks and systems.
