Developing secure IoT devices with AWS IoT and the STM32L4+ Discovery kit IoT node
Development of modern IoT devices is impossible without 2 features that fundamentally differentiate them from their non-connected siblings:
- Strong Root of Trust
- Ability to reliably update their firmware Over-the-Air (or Over-the-Wire)
STMicroelectronics collaborated with AWS to create reference designs for connected devices. Those designs leverage the power of secure hyperscale AWS IoT message broker, STM32 MCUs, and STSAFE secure elements.
During this session with hands-on lab demo, we will show how you can easily start developing your first IoT connected device using the flagship STM32L4+ Discovery kit IoT node (B-L4S5I-IOT01A), STM32 Cube IDE and AWS CLI. The presentation will be accompanied with a code repository so you can replicate all the steps of the demonstration.

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
Simplifying integration of sensor data using NFC enabled Multi-Sensor Node
As NFC becomes ubiquitous, its applications range from mobile payment to sensor data logging. During this approximately 2 hour workshop, you will learn how to integrate NFC, sensors and a microcontroller to create an NFC Sensor node. This workshop will combine the STM32L031 low-power MCU, ST25DV NFC Dynamic Tag IC, HTS221 Humidity and Temperature Sensor, LPS22HB Barometer/Altimeter and LIS2DW12 3-axis accelerometer into the NFC Sensor node.
This workshop will cover the following topics:
- Overview of NFC Technology
- ST NFC Product Portfolio
- ST Sensors Technology
- Firmware and hardware structure
- Using ST25R3911B NFC reader to read sensor data from the Sensor Tag.
The NFC hands-on will use the following kits and are available from our Distributors such as DigiKey or Mouser Electronics.
- ST25R3911B-DISCO (this is an NFC/RFID discovery board)
- STEVAL-SMARTAG1 (this is an NFC/RFIF evaluation board)
- CABLES USB A to Micro B
- CR2032 battery
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.
