The emSecure from SEGGER (Hilden, Germany) is the first digital signature software package designed specifically for embedded systems. The emSecure module provides a selection of easy-to-use functions, which allows the developer to easily add a digital signature to a product. The module includes an implementation of the RSA public-key cryptosystem and everything else needed for digitally signing data. emSecure:
- Generates keys, as well as sign messages and verify signatures, based on asymmetric encryption (RSA) and discrete logarithms (DSA).
- Can be used to authenticate firmware if the digital signature includes the unique ID of the microcontroller.
- Can also ensure secure firmware updates for any kind of embedded device.
