tVault™ is Elliptic's flagship technology that enables hardware enforced end-to-end security in connected devices. tVault provides robust security inside Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) and enforces the protection of sensitive information to ensure that it is stored, processed and accessed only by authorized applications.
Individuals and enterprises are using a continually expanding array of intelligent connected devices. From smartphones and tablets, to smart HDTVs, home theatre components and in-car infotainment systems, these devices are rapidly evolving to become essential communication and computing platforms and "lifestyle" devices in the era of the connected consumer. This new rich ecosystem allows for numerous services and applications to run on these devices and offers users unparalleled opportunities to access content and to perform daily tasks. With the rise in the multitude of connected devices and the value of the data stored on them, security has become a very critical component requiring priority attention.
tVault enables highly secure environments that allow for a wide range of applications including Digital Rights Management (DRM) and content protection, Over-The-Top (OTT) TV, mobile TV and electronic financial transactions to be deployed in high performance computing platforms.
tVault consists of firmware, standard APIs, hardware support and acceleration that run efficiently in limited resource environments. tVault integrates seamlessly within frameworks such as ARM TrustZone™ , where the critical security components are embedded in a trusted and secure OS environment. The non-critical components are executed by the rich OS, such as Android. tVault enables SoC vendors, OEMs, ODMs and network operators to rapidly bring products to market with robust, standards-compliant security.
Two of Elliptic's most popular tVault solutions – tVault HDCP 2.2 and tVault DTCP-IP – are dedicated to content protection and are essential security technologies that allow consumers to enjoy high definition premium content anywhere and anytime, while safeguarding the rights of media producers to protect their investment in programming production.
A highly programmable and unique Security Protocol Accelerator specifically designed to efficiently process data for high capacity wireless and network applications. The engine is perfectly suited for applications that deal with multiple active connections and significant traffic load on different contexts, such as 4G LTE-Advanced wireless cellular base stations and femtocells.
