About Sansa Silicon

Sansa Silicon is a security subsystem embedded at the silicon/chip level that serves as the infrastructure for all security-related use cases running on the chipset. This subsystem is comprised of hardware, firmware and tools external to the chipset. It handles the cryptography, roots of trust, lifecycle management, secure boot, key management, secure storage and many more functions found within devices that can be securely controlled and provisioned through the cloud.

Sansa Silicon was designed from the ground up to address the most serious security challenges mobile and IoT device manufactures face today. Being an agnostic solution, Sansa Silicon can be utilized within various types of devices regardless of the operating systems preferred by the manufacturer. Each device is built with different capabilities that are governed by the purpose and size of the device. Sansa Silicon balances the limited functionality and processing power of IoT devices with the relevant threat models that are emerging every day. The company has done this by delivering multiple client profiles for embedded silicon devices that are designed to make best use of a chip's resources and by building a solution that is cloud ready from day one.

Sansa Silicon is also interoperable out of the box with Sansa Provisioning, which consists of technology split between Sansa Client and Sansa Server. As the device side to Sansa Security's provisioning solution, Sansa Client interacts with any Sansa Server dynamically and absorbs, maintains and manages assets locally. Sansa Client also enforces the prescribed access controls and consumption policies. Sansa Server enables robust, hardware based provisioning of “assets” either in the factory or in the field, which is also referred to as “post provisioning.” It also allows for a very flexible usage model, where an entity having provisioning rights can delegate all/some rights to other entities.
