With growing number of devices at the edge, security is becoming a priority. Intel offers foundational security capabilities to help protect the edge with hardware-based security features that are designed into the products to help customers build a trusted foundation for their edge devices1

Intel's Foundational Security Capabilities for IoT Applications

Intel helps customers deliver high impact solutions with security in mind. Intel invests in four foundational IoT security categories:

  • Platform integrity
  • Improved protection for data, keys and ID
  • Crypto acceleration 
  • Trusted execution

These foundational security capabilities are offered across all IoT products for customers to build security into their edge devices. To be equipped for a high security model, devices should be instrumented to take advantage of the foundational security capabilities.
