TI Demonstrates 'Over-the-Air' Secure Application Downloads Over Live Wireless Networks

Enabled by TI's M-Shield(TM) Security Technology on the OMAP(TM) Platform

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on its strategy to allow mobile operators to provide new services and improved user experience, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) is demonstrating TI's M-Shield(TM) security framework on the OMAP(TM) platform at 3GSM World Congress. TI has collaborated with Vodafone to showcase how operators can securely deploy and upgrade key applications, such as DRM agents to phones over-the-air (OTA), making it possible for an installed-base of users to upgrade the capabilities of their handsets and purchase protected multimedia content transparently. This capability will reduce operators' operational costs, improve time-to- market of new services deployment, while at the same time preventing the risk of installing unwanted applications and malicious software.

"A robust trusted execution platform is critical to ensure secure software downloads and execution," said Chris Haynes of Vodafone. "TI's M-Shield security technology on the OMAP platform offers the means to achieve the level of security we want to provide to customers. We now have demonstrated the possibility to securely upgrade terminals in the field, and to speedily provide customers with new services and content access."

In collaboration with Trusted Logic, the demonstration of TI's M-Shield Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) shows the real-time, secure download of Calton Hill's DRM agent over Vodafone's existing wireless infrastructure to a terminal that has no DRM; a real-time upgrade to the software over the network; and a demonstration of protected content and rights sharing between two terminals. The demonstration illustrates how users can easily upgrade their installed software, or transfer rights to use protected content to other users.

"In order for content-based and personalized applications to proliferate, security solutions on handsets need to be cost-efficient, standards-compliant, and easily deployable and upgradeable. TI's M-Shield Trusted Execution Environment on the OMAP platform greatly expands the possibilities offered in the deployment of secure services to both operators and end-users," said Loic Hamon, Strategic Marketing Director of TI's Wireless Terminals Business Unit. "Now devices in the field can securely receive instant software installations or upgrades to handle new services and fix bugs, and ensure enhanced reliability and resilience to attack over the lifetime of the terminal."
