To provide a standards-based security architecture that is portable across multiple chipsets, Certicom Corp. announced a board support package, Security Builder BSP for Texas Instruments Inc. (TI's) OMAP platform. The collaboration enables device manufacturers to quickly and cost-effectively embed security across multiple families and generations of devices.

Certicom will support TI's OMAP2420 processors through an optimized hardware abstraction layer to allow cryptographic acceleration of symmetric and public key algorithms and key storage. The functionality is part of the overall Certicom Security Architecture, a comprehensive solution that makes it easier for mobile handset developers and device manufacturers to realize the benefits of hardware-optimized security.

"Embedding security directly into the device offers many advantages, to help mobile handset manufacturers meet functionality requirements such as secure messaging, secure VoIP, and digital rights management (DRM)," said Jim Alfred, director of product management at Certicom. "By working with the leading processor vendors, Certicom offers a solution that is highly portable, and ultimately saves device manufacturers time and money," Alfred added.
