Some application examples include:
Renesas Board ID Benefits
The Board ID device facilitates new functions and processes for M2M security. It also offers significant benefits for business, industry, hospitals, government, consumers and other M2M markets, relative to traditional machine identification technologies such as EEPROMs.
- Ensures only a genuine or certified component can be used by a system
- Usage control
- Ensures host system will only work with a valid peripheral as per the prescribed usage conditions (# times, duration, location)
- Secure Tracking
- Ensures warranties and maintenance are provided for valid unit
- IP Protection
- Implements a security procedure that safeguards sensitive and valuable IP on a circuit board
Board ID M2M Authentication
In operation, the Board ID based solution makes M2M authentication a fast process. The host authenticates the Board ID chip via a communication link that does NOT have to be secured. The entire process takes place quickly - typically in a fraction of a second.
The Board ID chip is pre-equipped with firmware and security application (see figure) to perform easily the security services described above.
