Proven Security Technology

The new smartwatch leverages Trustonic Secured Platform (TSP), a proven security technology already deployed in 2 billion smart devices. TSP protects connected devices like wearables, smartphones, automotive in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) platforms and healthcare devices by delivering industry-standard based, hardware-backed security. It provides security-by-design from the silicon level up with no additional bill of materials for the OEM and has been optimized to meet the requirements of high-volume manufacturers like Casio. TSP utilizes Trustonic’s Common Criteria and GlobalPlatform-certified Trusted Execution Environment (TEE*), which is enabling Casio to satisfy Google’s Keymaster and verified boot requirements and develop future-proof consumer smartwatches.

“Casio’s customers have active lifestyles and high expectations of wearable devices, and Trustonic is helping Casio to lead the charge in pursuit of new experiences,” adds Ben. “Of course, meeting security requirements is essential, and our clients like Casio always put users’ privacy first, but integrating TSP is also about enabling application developers to build apps on a foundation of trust that help athletes to be more dynamic in their enjoyment of the great outdoors.”

*The TEE is a secure area of the main processor in a smartphone (or any connected device) that ensures sensitive data is stored, processed and protected in an isolated, trusted environment. The TEE’s ability to offer isolated safe execution of authorized security software, known as ‘trusted applications’, enables it to provide end-to-end security by enforcing protection, confidentiality, integrity and data access rights. The TEE offers a level of protection against software attacks, generated in the Rich OS environment. It assists in the control of access rights and houses sensitive applications, which need to be isolated from the Rich OS.
