ARM® and Crocus Technology today announce that Crocus has licensed the
ARM SecurCore® SC000 ™ processor. Crocus’s new range
of secure microcontrollers will combine SecurCore technology with
Crocus’s innovative Magnetic Logic Unit™ (MLU) architecture. The
combined strengths of these two advanced technologies will enable
companies to more easily develop secure, energy-efficient and
high-performance new smart card products at low cost.
Digital security has become a key issue for today’s businesses and
consumers. This agreement underlines ARM’s commitment to delivering
advanced security for the next generation of intelligent digital devices
and systems. The ARM SecurCore SC000 processor is the leading 32-bit
solution for secure components and products, including SIM cards, smart
cards and in-package secure enclaves. The partnership of this processor
with Crocus MLU technology delivers an important new product to the
“ARM is pleased to be working closely with Crocus to enable and protect
our increasingly connected world,” said Noel Hurley, deputy general
manager, CPU Group, ARM. “This partnership will build on the strong
trust in smart, energy-efficient ARM-based technologies and the networks
connecting them. Businesses need to deliver next-generation security at
all levels, from smart cards to servers.”
“Crocus is delighted to be taking our disruptive MLU security forward
with ARM,” said Bertrand Cambou, executive chairman, Crocus. “Combining
the widely adopted ARM SecurCore processor with Crocus’s disruptive MLU
technology further enhances industry recognition of Crocus’s products
and their compliance with industry standards.
Crocus products are highly secure, easy to use and affordable. Security
has become a key issue in areas where ARM partners set the pace. This is
in the mobile space, where transactions are expected to reach 3.2
trillion dollars in 2017 (Juniper Research, June 2013) and in the
embedded market as the Internet of Things accelerates.
Crocus’s MLU is a rugged magnetic technology built upon standard bulk
CMOS devices. It brings advantages in high speed, security and robust
performance at lower cost to embedded products and non-volatile memory
blocks across smart cards, mobile phones and data servers. MLU devices
are also used as basic cells in the design of magnetic sensors that
offer advantages in high sensitivity, low-noise, low-cost, and high
temperature for consumer and industrial applications. It is predicted
that there will be 30 billion internet-connected devices by 2020 (Bill

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud.
Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends:
Exposing the device to a management framework
Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic
Exposing that business layer and data to end users.
This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
