With the increased sophistication of embedded applications, systems designers and their customers are expressing heightened concerns regarding the importance of protecting the data residing in their systems, and by extension, their investment in intellectual property.

Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions has given data protection a very high priority in the design of its Power Architecture single board computers (SBC). Curtiss-Wright utilizes NXP’s (formerly Freescale) next generation system-on-chip (SoC) QorIQ T2080 Platform for its rugged, SWaP-optimized Power Architecture modules. The QorIQ Platform’s Trust Architecture allows for developing systems to achieve higher levels of security, with reductions in cost, size and power.

This paper will refer solely to the T2080 Processor when stating the name of this QorIQ processor family. For a detailed review of the P4080 Processor, please read the following white paper: Embedded High Assurance Computing Using NXP Trust Architecture.

This paper presents an overview of the potential threats to an embedded system, and how the Trust Architecture can effectively defend against these threats.
