In-field firmware updates are becoming an increasingly popular feature supported on products that are deployed to the field; however, this feature is also very commonly exploited by attackers, and if vulnerable, can compromise the security of the system. In this series we will discuss the various  security concerns for in-field firmware updates, and a solution for increasing the security of in-field firmware updates in ultra-low power MSP microcontrollers - called the Crypto-Bootloader. 

  • Part 1: Firmware updates in network-connected MCUs
  • Part 2: Security definition, known attacks and security measures
  • Part 3: Crypto-bootloader flow and implementation
  • Part 4: FRAM advantages, tools overview and summary
