Dialog Semiconductor Limited announced that its DA16200 SoC has achieved PSA Certified(TM) Level 1 status. With the broader adoption of IoT devices such as wearables, door locks, thermostats and smart home sensors, ensuring chip level security features that enable end-to-end security is critical. To address the deployment of securely connected products, Dialog developed the DA16200 with security protocols, including the latest generation hardware encryption engine and authentication standards for safeguarding against potential threats. The SoC is also built with WPA3 and TLS for authentication and encryption at Wi-Fi and higher stack layers, further strengthening its security and reducing the risk of security breaches. Advanced security features of the SoC includes secure boot, secure debugging and secure asset storage. The PSA Certified certification scheme, co-founded by Arm and its four independent security evaluation lab partner including SGS Brightsight in 2019, uses a methodological approach to develop best practices for security. The framework aims to resolve the growing fragmentation of IoT requirements and ensure security is no longer a barrier to product development. The PSA Certified framework, consisting of four steps: analyze, architect, implement and certify, ensures that the certified products are thoroughly vetted to meet the stringent security needs of the fast changing IoT market. As a result, PSA Certified products allow IoT product makers to focus more on improving their application features without worrying about security and privacy issues.
