Security subsystem: An independent security subsystem is used to physically isolate memory hardware from application and protocol subsystems to ensure a high level of security.

Hardware-based crypto engine: A secure, high-performance hardware-based crypto engine ensures a high degree of privacy.

Secure boot: Features a built-in OnChipBoot that supports secure boot. Multi-level security certificates can be used for signing and signature verification to ensure that programs are valid.

Secure storage: The security subsystem manages encryption keys and communicates with the application and protocol subsystems via hardware mailboxes, to implement the secure storage of private data.

Secure transmission: Hardware acceleration based on Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) are utilized to ensure communications security.

Secure updates: Signing and signature verification of update files are supported, bolstered by capabilities like version anti-rollback.

Secure applications: The SoC SIM function and DT nuSIM* standard are supported to boost application security.
