A Proposal of Security Evaluation for Microcontroller-Based IoT Devices (M11a)

In order to accommodate the growing need for IoT devices, this presentation proposes a security evaluation of these devices in the common criteria framework. We present ongoing work in Japan on the security of microcontrollers employing a newly-proposed Secure Cryptographic Unit (SCU) as a root of trust, which provides symmetric/public-key cryptographic capabilities. Also, we discuss new perspectives on how to evaluate their security, included in Protection Profile and Supporting Document that we are currently developing.
