STMicroelectronics

Electronic circuits form a mostly invisible part of the world we live in today. These circuits are present in microchips or just "chips", which combine the latest advances in performance, intelligence and, efficiency. Hundreds or thousands of these chips are integrated into each of the millions and billions of electronic devices people across the globe interact with every day. It is in this unseen realm that STMicroelectronics creates the sparks that animate the products we use at any given moment. Our technology is found everywhere microelectronics makes a positive contribution to people's lives. Chips from ST embedding the most advanced innovations are an essential part of products as diverse as cars and key fobs, giant factory machines and data center power supplies, washing machines and hard disks, and smartphones and toothbrushes. We help our customers make these devices more intelligent, more energy efficient, more connected, safer and more secure.

Isolating MCU hardware and firmware using TrustZone security technology

In the IoT and connected device marketplace, device security is paramount to protect customer information and to prevent outside attacks.

The new STM32L5 series MCU based on ARM Cortex M33 core with TrustZone technology is part of the STM32Trust Security Ecosystem, where the TrustZone is a dynamic firewall providing hardware and software isolation to the system. Developers can isolate critical security firmware, authentication and private information from other parts of the device. The STM32L5 provides crypto accelerators for Public Key, AES, Hash and a True Random Number Generator and On-the-Fly Decrypt for external memories. The STM32L5 can provide secure boot with Root Secure Services and TF-M (ARM PSA compliant Trusted Firmware) with a unique boot entry, providing a secure framework to base the system on "Root of Trust". The new series further pushes the low power footprint of our already class leading devices while offering new peripherals (USB Type C & PD) and power management innovation allowing for a class leading 62uA/MHz current consumption.

You will learn:

  • The new features and peripherals in the STM32L5
  • Understand how to create a "Root of Trust" with the STM32L5 Security features
  • How to use STM32 Trusted Package Creator
  • How to interface to other ST products (NFC) for a digital signature verification application

Integrating NFC into your application: What you need to know

In this session we will show you how to overcome the most common design challenges in NFC integration to achieve optimal performance and fast time-to-market.

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology that uses magnetic field induction to enable contact-less data exchange between two compatible devices moved within close proximity to one another. While simple in concept, implementing a robust and high-performing NFC design can be daunting, as developers must first consider things like passing certifications, interoperability, shrinking size requirements, low power consumption, and development time.

In the session, we will start by exploring the most common NFC reader applications in today's fast-growing NFC market. We will discuss the principle design challenges faced by engineers, and how to resolve them using the ST25R3916 high-performance NFC universal reader.

This industry-leading device boasts a unique set of features including dynamic power output, automatic antenna tuning, noise suppression receiver, and low power wake up, which make it ideal for robust and efficient designs over a wide range of consumer and industrial NFC applications.

You will learn:

  • the main challenges of designing an NFC reader and how to overcome them
  • about the ST25R3916 high-performance NFC universal reader device
  • how to exploit the device's unique features to design a best-in-class solution

Secure and Non-Secure application co-existence using TrustZone security technology

This 2-hour hands-on workshop will use the STMicroelectronics NUCLEO-L552ZE-Q board to configure and activate the Cortex-M33 TrustZone to secure an application. A Blinky application will be used to demonstrate how the STM32L5 TrustZone can secure the peripherals and memory. The workshop will be divided into approximately 20-minute segments alternating between lecture and hands-on. The STM32CubeMX configuration tool will be used to configure the STM32L5 device and to generate the Blinky LED application code for secure and non-secure applications. No source code compiler or IDE is required as the pre-complied binaries will be provided. The STM32cube Programmer tool and the embedded STLINK/V3 will be used to load the binaries into the STM32L5 device.

Workshop Agenda (may change prior to event)

1.Overview of the STM32L5 and Cortex M33 Device
Hands-On: Configure and download a non-secure Blinky application

2. Overview of the TrustZone
Hands-On: Configure and download a secure Blinky application

3. Review the secure and Non-Secure application co-existence using TrustZone
Hands-On: Add the non-secure Blinky application to the trusted application.

4. Review the trustZone Faults and Regression
Hands-On: Change the non-secure Blinky application to attempt access to the secure LED.
Hands-On: Turnoff and mass erase the STM32L5 TrustZone.
