The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 becomes the first mobile SoC to receive an equivalent security certificate for smart cards
– Protective device can run high security applications that were previously run only by external security chips, such as 2010 Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), announced the Qualcomm® Secure Processing Unit, a security feature recently launched as part of the Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 855 Mobile Platform has been awarded a security certificate EAL-4 +, the gold standard for security hardware testing and testing. The internationally recognized certificate makes the Snapdragon 855 the first Mobile SoC (System on Chip) to achieve smart card security levels. The built-in Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit allows Qualcomm Technologies customers to save on material costs without sacrificing security, and offers performance and energy improvements that come with integration into the leading process node.
Examples of Current Qualcomm Secure CPU usage includes Android Strongbox Keymaster and Gatekeeper. At the Qualcomm Technologies demonstration at MWC Shanghai this week is another example of Qualcomm's Secure Processing Certified Qualities: a Qualified Technologies Integrated SIM (iSIM) demonstration by Qualcomm Technologies and Gemalto, a Thales company. In the future, features such as offline payment, TPM, transit, electronic identifiers and cryptographic portfolios will be possible without the need for a discreet security chip.
"Completing the security of EAL-4 + certification is a major step in our journey to provide security levels for our customers and Snapdragon users." Use cases that previously required separate security chips now will be fully integrated into the devices powered by the Snapdragon 855, "said Jessie Seid, Senior Product Management Director, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc." This certificate is the industry first to note that Snapdragon 855 offers Qualcomm Technologies' market leadership in the field of engraving days security. "
Certification of Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit approved by BSI (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik), Federal Information Security of Germany. It is known that the BSI Certification Program is very rigorous and world-renowned.
"As a national certification body, BSI has demonstrated with this certification that the Common Criteria (ISO / IEC 1
Information security is a prerequisite for successful digitization, "said Arne Schönböm, president of the German Federal Information Security Service
" Security enhancement is a top priority for all our platforms, "said Dave Claydermecker, Android Security chief and defense "The Qualcomm Secure processor allows our VET to meet the stringent requirements of Android StrongBox and we look forward to seeing how partners apply it to take advantage of the key features of StrongBox, "
" We are committed to enhanced embedded security with the Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit to accelerate the deployment of embedded SIM (eSIM) based cellular connectivity across a wide variety of consumer devices, "said Jean "This innovation, based on the GSMA global eSIM specification, will be great for all exciting products in all markets," says Jean-Christophe Tiseuil, lead author power of SIM, GSMA. "Industry-guaranteed security in this work is critical and we congratulate Qualcomm Technologies for achieving this significant level of certification in an innovative product."
Already in production, the Snapdragon 855 with Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit offers improved power and performance. features in addition to leading industry-leading security features. It is launched in global leadership and is the first industrial mobile platform to support the multi-gigabit 5G, AI device and XR, bringing a new decade of revolutionary mobile devices.
