Cloakware: renewable security in depth that protects Connected Home platforms, apps and smart devices from the inside-out

The days of relying solely on perimeter security, where everything that runs inside the firewall or sandbox is implicitly trusted, are well and truly over. In many IoT applications more robust security is needed inside the software itself.

Irdeto’s Cloakware is a defense in depth solution that consists of a set of anti-hacking technologies that adds security to software platforms, apps and smart devices. It prevents hackers from reverse engineering the device or application by using anti-debug, code transformations, whitebox cryptography and other technologies. The secure code is generated with a changeable seed that can be renewed easily, creating new versions of the software to thwart differential analysis and collusion and increasing the hacker’s efforts over the long-term. This makes the original code and data excessively costly to tamper with, and therefore reduces the scale of their profits.
