Building a safe and secure embedded world

Designing Secure Microcontroller Systems

This course is an introduction to developing secure microcontroller systems with the Mbed-TLS cryptographic library. Mbed-TLS is a free to use cryptographic library developed and maintained as part of ARM’s Mbed IoT platform. It is licensed under an Apache 2 or GPL v2 for commercial and non commercial use. During this course we will look at the function and use of each element of the Mbed-TLS library. This course will also consider how to take best advantage of the Cortex-M processor features to best implement a secure system. The course is designed as a hands on workshop using the Keil MDK-ARM development software.

This course is also ideally attended alongside the 2-day Middleware course, held on the days prior to this course.

The course is delivered by our resident ARM Specialist, Trevor Martin who is also a published author and widely recognised authority on Cortex-M cores.
