What is a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE)
The TEE is a secure area that resides in the main processor of a smart phone (or any smart device) and ensures that sensitive data is stored, processed and protected in a trusted environment. The TEE's ability to offer safe execution of authorized security software, known as 'trusted applications', enables it to provide end-to-end security by enforcing protection, confidentiality, integrity and data access rights. Devices developed according to the recommendations of the TrustZone Ready Program and utilize TrustZone technology, deliver a platform that is capable of supporting a full Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and security aware applications and secure services.
INSIDE’s VPN solutions will be on display at the Qualcomm 3G/LTE Summit in Hong Kong, Booth # 39 September 10, at the Hong Kong Convention Center.
