Secure-IC, a provider of cybersecurity solutions for embedded systems and connected objects, has announced that its embedded cybersecurity solution Securyzr iSE (integrated Secure Element) 900 has been integrated into MediaTek’s Dimensity 9300 chipset.

Secure-IC’s Securyzr ensures the protection of sensitive data and critical processes within the smartphone chipset, preventing unauthorised access and safeguarding the system’s integrity.

The adoption of Securyzr, when combined with Secure-IC’s system-level certification support, allows MediaTek’s SoC to be Common Criteria level 4+ (AVA_VAN.5) ready. Following on from this project, Secure-IC will also provide MediaTek with further security solutions.

MediaTek is a global fabless semiconductor company developing innovative systems-on-chip (SoC) for mobile, home entertainment, connectivity and IoT products and released the Dimensity 9300 in November this year.

The integration of Secure-IC’s solution in Dimensity 9300 is being seen as a significant milestone for the company. The Securyzr iSE 900 series provides Dimensity 9300 with an advanced layer of security and ensures the integrity of the system by working as the Root of Trust (RoT) and provides a Secure Processing capability and (SPU – Secure Processing Unit).

As the Secure Enclave within the MediaTek Dimensity 9300, Securyzr iSE 900 also plays a key part in safeguarding critical operations throughout the device's lifecycle, such as Secure Boot, Firmware Updates, Key Management, Cryptographic Services.

It continually monitors these secure processes to ensure their resilience against potential disruptions such as Cyber Physical Attacks and mitigates against potential threats. In parallel, Secure-IC has delivered robust software solutions, both at integrated Secure Element and Host levels, including advanced security lifecycle management capabilities and a secure operating system (OS).

On top of acting as the Trusted anchor and Root of Trust, Securyzr iSE 900 is also leveraged to allow sensitive processes and applications to run in an isolated secure area.

"The integration of Secure-IC's cutting-edge security technology into our Dimensity 9300 represents a significant stride forward in our mission to offer the absolute best solutions when our customers buy our flagship products. Together, we will continue to drive innovation, ensuring that our Dimensity 9300 sets new benchmarks in terms of both security and performance,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business.
