Key Benefits

Build secure IoT solutions

Built-in HW security

Combining a proprietary RISC-V processor with a robust and resilient security foundation, our solutions offer physical attack protection and anti-tampering capabilities to safeguard sensitive data and operations within the enclave.

Programmable Trust Application (TA)

Proprietary TAs are developed securely, isolated by the secure platform. The IP’s secure debug can be utilized to facilitate TA development and integration.

Multiple use cases & verticals

Meets the security requirements and standards of multiple vertical markets and use cases.

Safeguarding external NVM data

Empower application and data security for external NVM with our Secure Flash Access (SFA) block, ensuring top-tier confidentiality, authenticity, integrity, freshness, and real-time access assurance.

Cryptographic, Random Number Generation, and Key Protection Services

Seamlessly integrated cryptographic solution, including Quantum-Resistant Cryptography (QRC), secure provisioning, storage, and usage of secret keys.

Built-in advanced security services

Including secure device lifecycle, secure boot, secure debug, data and communication. The integration of these security services is simplified through the Kudelski Secure Services Library (KSSL).


Offering SoC manufacturers flexibility according to their specific needs for security, performance, and gate count

At Kudelski IoT, we acknowledge the multifaceted landscape of security standards, regulations, requirements, and services that are mandated by various use cases. In response to this complex environment, our product portfolio has been structured into two distinct product series, the KSE5 and KSE3, and complemented by a modular architecture. Each of these series is designed to meet a specific security level while providing a common core feature set.

Our portfolio organization reflects our dedication to delivering tailored solutions that serve diverse applications needs, offering SoC manufacturers flexibility according to their specific requirements for security, performance, and gate count. As part of our offering, we provide full support for integrating the KSE and obtaining certifications. Our products adhere to strong coding standards and undergo comprehensive assessments and audits.
