Secure Vehicle Integration Platform with Kinibi and Orangebox

NXP and Trustonic have partnered to bring advanced hardware-based security to the iMX8 SoC family. One of the most widely used chips globally that is unrestricted to verticals, being used heavily in IoT and Automotive with both Linux and Android based devices. Now embedded systems developers can build the most secure solutions using a trusted and proprietary Secure operating system with the easy to use toolkit. And benefit from other NXP partners to harden their existing solutions using commercial grade TEE technology.

With the growing need for regulatory compliance in the connected world, our TEE provides a solution, free of open, that simplifies the SBOM for OEMs and massively reduces the attack surface. It simplifies the vulnerability matrix and threat analysis, making compliance easier for device makers.

Solutions with Trustonic’s Global Platform compliant Kinibi Secure OS :

  • Superior performance cryptography
  • Multiple Secure Storage options
  • Key & Data Provisioning and Management
  • Attestation and Secure Communications

CONFIDENTIALITY 3.1. Each party will keep confidential all Confidential Information supplied by the other party, and shall not without the prior written consent of the other party use, exploit, make copies, disclose or make available to any third party the Confidential Information, in whole or in part, for any purpose whatsoever except for the purposes permitted or set out under this Licence and only to the extent necessary for those purposes, and each shall inform its employees and contractors of their duty of confidentiality. Each party warrants that it has the right to make the disclosures under this Licence. Except as expressly stated in this Licence, the Confidential Information is provided “as is” and accordingly no party makes any express or implied warranty or representation concerning its Confidential Information, or the accuracy or completeness of the Confidential Information. Each party will protect the disclosed Confidential Information by using the same degree of care (but no less than a reasonable degree of care to prevent the unauthorised use, dissemination, or publication of the Confidential Information) as the receiving party uses to protect its own confidential information of a like nature and upon discovery of any actual, threatened or improper disclosure or other misuse of Confidential Information promptly notify the disclosing party and act to prevent any further disclosure or misuse. This obligation shall survive for 5 years from termination of this Licence. LICENSEE acknowledges that, due to the unique nature of LICENSOR’s Confidential Information, the unauthorised disclosure or use of such Confidential Information will cause irreparable harm and significant injury to Licensor, the extent of which will be difficult to ascertain and for which there will be no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, LICENSEE agrees that LICENSOR, in addition to any other available remedies, will have the right to an immediate injunction and other equitable relief enjoining any breach or threatened breach of this clause 3, without the necessity of posting any bond or other security. LICENSEE will notify LICENSOR in writing immediately upon Recipient’s becoming aware of any such breach or threatened breach. 3.2.

Except as expressly licensed to LICENSEE under this Licence, the Trustonic SDK and all intellectual property contained within (including all modifications, enhancements and Derivative Works of the Trustonic SDK by whomever created or developed) are and will remain the property of LICENSOR or its licensors. Licensee will not obtain under this Licence, and nothing in this Licence is intended to or will be deemed to grant to LICENSEE (i) any title or ownership interest in or to the Trustonic SDK or any other property of LICENSOR or its licensors or (ii) any license or other right, whether by implication, estoppel or otherwise, except for the limited licenses expressly granted to LICENSEE hereunder. 4.2. LICENSOR warrants that as far as it is aware, the Trustonic SDK does not infringe any third party’s intellectual property rights. If any valid claim of breach of such warranty is brought to the attention of LICENSOR it may: a) obtain a licence from the third party so that the Trustonic SDK does not infringe; or b) provide a non-infringing substitute for the Trustonic SDK; or c) terminate this Licence immediately. 4.3. The intellectual property rights in the Licensee Software shall on creation of the rights vest in the LICENSEE. 4.4 LICENSEE must inform LICENSOR, in writing, if the LICENSEE becomes aware of any breach of the warranty in clause 4.2, permit LICENSOR to deal with any claim and give LICENSOR, at its reasonable cost, all reasonable assistance in relation to any claim. 5. WARRANTIES 5.1. The Trustonic SDK is provided “AS IS”. Accordingly, LICENSOR makes no express or implied warranty or representation concerning the Trustonic SDK, or its accuracy or completeness and therefore excludes all conditions, warranties and representations (express or implied), statutory or otherwise in respect of the Trustonic SDK. 6. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY 6.1. EXCEPT FOR INJURY TO OR DEATH OF ANY PERSON CAUSED BY LICENSOR’S NEGLIGENCE (FOR WHICH NO LIMIT APPLIES), LICENSOR WILL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING IN EACH CASE NEGLIGENCE) OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE (INCLUDING LOSS OR DAMAGE TO LICENSEE’S (OR ANY OTHER’S) DATA OR COMPUTER PROGRAMS) ARISING OUT OF, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE TRUSTONIC SDK OR THIS LICENCE. IN ANY EVENT AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, LICENSOR’S TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE IN RESPECT OF THE TRUSTONIC SDK OR THIS LICENCE WILL NOT EXCEED €50. 6.2. LICENSEE SHALL BE EXCLUSIVELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY APPLICATIONS AND ACCORDINGLY LICENSEE SHALL INDEMNIFY LICENSOR IN RESPECT OF ALL COSTS DAMAGES AND EXPENSES INCURRED AS A RESULT OF ANY CLAIMS BY THIRD PARTIES IN TORT OR OTHERWISE AGAINST LICENSOR ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OF APPLICATIONS OR THE TRUSTONIC SDK BY THIRD PARTIES OR THE LICENSEE SOFTWARE, PROVIDED THAT LICENSOR WILL PERMIT THE LICENSEE TO DEAL WITH ANY CLAIM AND GIVE THE LICENSEE, AT THE LICENSEE’S REASONABLE COST, ALL REASONABLE ASSISTANCE IN RELATION TO ANY CLAIM. IN RELATION TO ANY SUCH CLAIM, LICENSEE AGREES AT ITS OWN EXPENSE, TO (I) DEFEND LICENSOR FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL SUCH CLAIMS, AND (II) PAY ANY FINAL SETTLEMENT OR AMOUNT AWARDED IN ANY FINAL JUDGMENT RENDERED ON SUCH CLAIM. 7.

Developer SDK

The Developer SDK is the starting point to create secure software that leverages all the advanced security features offered by Kinibi and the iMX8 chip. The SDK contains all the necessary documentation and code samples to make development easy.

Trustonic has made advanced hardware-based security accessible and simple to use with an easy and comprehensive development flow.

It is important to note that the evaluation kit has been designed to use development keys that are publicly accessible to prevent it being used in commercial deployments. The binaries used are therefore equivalent from performance point of view, but should be considered to have zero commercial security and a commercial license is required to access the true release.

The Developer SDK contains:

  • Getting started documentation
  • Kinibi API documentation
  • Kinibi developers guide
  • Project examples (samples)
  • Kinibi OS
  • Software tools
