Re: ARM's IoT Security Chip to Cloud

I posted this not too long ago.  And after today's announcement, I think it has even more
validity.  That's because Rambus' technology is needed in the IoT and it's looking to
become best-in-class and critical to IoT secuirty as evidenced in the independent quote from IDT:

<<“The semiconductor industry faced some of its biggest security issues this year with recent vulnerabilities, and the potential to encounter additional security flaws will not go away any time soon as more IoT devices enter the market,” said Abhi Dugar, an IoT security analyst for International Data Corp., speaking in a Rambus press release.

“To address existing and new threats, establishing trust at the hardware level will be critical, and a secure siloed core can help ensure that this new generation of devices can be protected from security flaws.”>>

My point is that there will a high demand for this type of technology once the IoT becomes more ubiquitous. This comment from the ARM article shows the demand:
<< ..Bob O'Donnell, president of market research and consulting firm TechNalysis Research, told EE Times that the ARM offering helps fill a hole in the IoT, as well. "The security piece has been missing in low-power MCUs," O'Donnell said, "and a lot of devices with security aren't being updated. What ARM has described is not the highest security, not enough for critical infrastructure, for instance. But it is pretty good security for a lot of IoT devices and certainly better than lots of IoT devices already out there. So, this announcement from ARM means the security of the IoT is going to get a lot better.">>
But more specifically on my point is that Rambus must have very good technology.
Why? That's because Softbank owns ARM Holdings and ARM Holdings has had
a chip to cloud offering for a while now as evidenced in the article that I provided.
Why did Softbank (the owner of ARM Holdings) choose Rambus' technology (after
BOTH of the announcements shown in the EE Times articles) if there wasn't
a lot of potential there?

Softbank Technology announces strategic IoT security partnership with Rambus

This entry was posted on Thursday, July 27th, 2017.

Softbank Technology, along with two of its subsidiaries, Cybertrust Japan and Miracle Linux Corporation, have announced a strategic partnership with Rambus. The partnership will see the three companies collaborate to bolster IoT security and device management using Rambus’ versatile CryptoManager platform.

“We are excited to partner with Softbank Technology Group and its subsidiaries, Cybertrust Japan and Miracle Linux Corporation, and leverage our CryptoManager platform to deliver industry-leading, secure connected device management,” said Rambus CEO Dr. Ron Black.>>
