TCG launches initiative to develop “world’s tiniest TPM”
Groundbreaking work to assure cybersecurity in the Internet of Things (IoT) era has been initiated, as the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) launched a new project to create the “world’s tiniest Trusted Platform Module (TPM).” Many manufacturers want to build devices that include Roots of Trust for Measurement (RTM), Storage (RTS) and Reporting (RTR) so that these devices can work securely within the TCG Measurement and Attestation framework. Today, TPM chips are used to implement the RTS and RTR in a highly secure manner. As IoT adoption continues to grow, a rising number of devices are so small that the inclusion of a full TPM chip might be impractical due to factors such as cost, space and power. TCG’s new Measurement and Attestation RootS (MARS) Subgroup has been formed to develop specifications that will enable manufacturers to build compliant chips with very little overhead for them and their customers. “In a nutshell, we want to specify what the tiniest TPM needs to be so it can be integrated directly within the host chip,” said Tom Brostrom, Chair of the MARS Subgroup. “This will ensure that devices that aren’t big enough to integrate a separate TPM will still be able to retain the required RTS/RTR capabilities. In turn, this will allow greater reach of trusted computing technologies over a wider set of devices and use cases.” The first prototype for such a TPM (known as Radicle) was exhibited during TCG’s members’ meeting held in Warsaw, Poland, this week during the inaugural session of the MARS Subgroup. The team also agreed on the scope of its work, which will focus on the hardware requirements necessary to control and operate the primitives supporting the RTS and RTR, and the software API to access them. A number of TCG’s other ongoing projects were also progressed during the members’ meeting, including work on specifications for secure software and firmware updates for embedded systems. Security in the Internet of Things (IoT), including industrial applications and the automotive industry was another key focus. “As we put greater trust in things like autonomous cars, smart homes and healthcare sensors, and connect them to the Internet, we need to take steps to make sure connected devices are ubiquitously secure to protect them from data breaches and hackers,” said Dr. Joerg Borchert, President of TCG. “As an international standard, TCG’s TPM is widely deployed and a proven solution. This makes our technologies ideally suited to deliver on the new security needs emerging as we move towards a world where everything is connected. The work undertaken at our latest members’ meeting will ultimately deliver the specifications needed to achieve this.”

KDPOF Introduces POF Link for Telematics Control Module
leading supplier for gigabit transceivers over POF (Plastic Optical Fiber) – presents an optical link concept for telematics control modules. "Several OEMs choose the IEEE Std 802.3bv™ for Gigabit Ethernet over POF (GEPOF), which is the ideal solution to connect Smart Antenna to the central communications hub while avoiding electromagnetic interference (EMI)," explained Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-founder of KDPOF. "The optical link enhances antenna performance, whereas in conventional systems, antenna reception sensitivity is reduced by the radiated emissions coming from the electrical communications links, such as UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) copper cables, coax, and the shielded alternatives." KDPOF, in partnership with ALPS, has developed a concept for an LTE-A telematics control module that uses Gigabit Ethernet over POF to connect to the central communications hub such as a head unit. Since POF provides inherently high Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), the links do not interfere with the smart antenna receivers. With the necessary speed going beyond 100 Mbps, a 1 Gbps Ethernet link is required. Moreover, substituting the current RF link with an Ethernet data link will not only aggregate LTE-A packets but other sources such as digital radio as well. Optical Link Concept for Smart Antenna New plastic, composite and crystal roofs or roofs with openings do not shield the antenna from electromagnetic noise generated inside the car compartment. Instead, a significant amount of energy is radiated by the coaxial cable that is coupled back into the Integrated Smart Antenna (ISA) electronics, which severely degrades its performance. The natural EMC problem-free POF is ideally suited for an Ethernet connection, avoiding back-coupling conditions like the above mentioned one. In addition, the EMC problem-free link permits simple re-positioning of the antenna module among vehicle configurations. Another advantage is the simple integration with current ISA chipsets thanks to the Ethernet (SGMII/RGMII) host bus of the Gigabit POF transceiver. Furthermore, thanks to the Gigabit capacity of the Ethernet link over POF, the data link will aggregate various data streams such as LTE-A, Wi-Fi, V2x, RDS, DAB radio, etc. KDPOF will present their optical link concept with Gigabit Ethernet over POF for telematics control modules at the Nikkei Tech Days on June 5 and 6, 2019 in Osaka, Japan.

ATIS Brings Open Source oneM2M Support to Embedded Cellular IoT Modules
ATIS today announced that it has successfully demonstrated a cellular IoT module using the ATIS OS-IoT software accessing cloud-based oneM2M standard services over Vodafone’s Open Lab Narrow-Band IoT (NB-IoT) test network. The global oneM2M standard defines a common, interoperable platform for IoT systems, providing application-independent building blocks that fulfill core tasks of secure data collection, management and distribution. The NB-IoT standard, defined by 3GPP, provides economical and efficient support of narrow-bandwidth communication services to IoT applications with wide geographic coverage by adding IoT optimizations to mobile cellular networks. The demonstration shows how applications built on the Open Source OS-IoT platform can use oneM2M and NB-IoT standards together to provide IoT capabilities suitable for global markets. “With OS-IoT, developers of sensor applications have an open platform that combines access to the oneM2M ecosystem with the international coverage and efficiency of NB-IoT communication,” said ATIS President and CEO, Susan Miller. “This platform enables application developers to expand their addressable market by offering oneM2M support on a wide range of sensor devices that meet tight cost and power constraints.” As the IoT revolution advances, a broad range of applications, including wearable devices, low-cost environmental monitors, smart meters and smart cities applications, depend on efficient machine-to-machine communication capabilities. NB-IoT allows cellular networks to overcome the challenge of providing connectivity to these devices and delivers communications services suitable for long-lived battery-powered sensors. The use of the oneM2M standard can help application providers address current concerns about IoT security, trustworthiness and data privacy while still providing openness where appropriate. The enhanced OS-IoT platform allows sensor applications to run directly on the NB-IoT cellular module without the need for an additional external microcontroller to act as an application processor. Compared to the conventional approach of using separate devices for the cellular module and the application processor, this reduces the Bill of Materials (BoM) costs of IoT sensors and offers lower power consumption. View the demonstration of the ATIS OS-IoT library for support of oneM2M running on the BG96 Cellular IoT module over Narrow-Band IoT (NB-IoT) at the Vodafone NB-IoT Open Lab here.
