Smartphone chips build in data security
Processor makers Texas Instruments (TI) and ARM are to work together on a security system for mobile and wireless devices. The move is designed to protect user data on smartphones and other devices and to secure e-commerce transactions and other sensitive traffic across public networks.
The two firms last week announced they are collaborating on a security system that will include ARM's TrustZone technology, which adds on-chip security features to the ARM processor architecture. ARM designs feature in a large number of mobile products, including TI's Omap chips for smartphones and wireless handhelds.
