Are you looking to take your embedded systems protection to the next level? Do you want to protect your embedded memory from unauthorized access and tampering?

Introducing our new course on Embedded Memory Security, covering essential topics such as MPU, Tamper Detection, and Read/Write Protection using Option Bytes.

This course is excellent for embedded system developers who want to protect their products from security threats. We have designed a multi-faceted curriculum that covers everything from wiping the backup registers clean to detecting stack overflow using the Memory Protection Unit (MPU). This course will teach you advanced security measures to safeguard your firmware from reverse engineering and protect your device from tampering.

We will also show you how to disable debug features before launching your product, ensuring that your firmware remains secure. Whether you're working on a small IoT device or a large industrial system, this course will provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to secure your embedded memory and keep your device safe from external threats.

This course is designed for professionals with a basic understanding of embedded systems, and is taught by industry experts with years of experience in the field. You'll learn through a combination of video lectures, hands-on exercises, and real-world case studies, giving you a practical understanding of how to implement these techniques in your own embedded systems.
At the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of the key concepts and techniques used to secure embedded memories, and be able to implement these techniques in your own projects. You'll be equipped with the skills and knowledge to secure your embedded systems against a wide range of memory-based attacks, ensuring the safety and security of your devices and data.

With the flexible online format, you can study at your own pace, from anywhere in the world. Plus, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can enroll with confidence.

Don't let your embedded systems be vulnerable to attack.

Here's a sneak peek at what you can expect to learn:

  • Bare-Metal MPU Driver Development:

In this section you will learn how to develop a bare-metal Memory Protection Unit (MPU) drivers. The MPU is a hardware unit that provides security for embedded systems by allowing the division of memory into a set of regions with specific access permissions. You will learn how to configure the MPU for your specific needs, including setting up memory regions and their access attributes. Additionally, you will learn how to write a low-level MPU driver to interface with your application code, which will enable you to protect your system from memory-based attacks.

  • Tamper Detection and Data Deletion:

This section will focus on tamper detection and data deletion using the RTC and backup domain of the microcontroller. Tamper detection is essential for preventing physical attacks on your device, such as removal of the memory chip, manipulation of data or code, or voltage-based attacks. You will learn how to implement tamper detection to detect tamper events. Data deletion is also a critical technique that helps protect against unauthorized access to sensitive data. You will learn how to design and implement an effective tamper detection scheme that will securely erase data in the event of a tamper event.

  • Protecting Flash Memory using Option Bytes:

You will learn how to use the option bytes in the bottom part of the flash memory region to protect the entire flash memory. Option bytes are a set of bits that are programmed at the factory or during device programming and can be used to configure the device's features, such as read/write protection. You will learn how to set up option bytes to protect your flash memory from unauthorized read/write access, ensuring the integrity of your data.
