Network infrastructure products like switches, service provider routers, 5G base stations require reboot from a security standpoint. This includes protecting firmware, side-channel attack protection, DoS, privilege escalation, and detecting vulnerabilities at boot- and run-time. Axiado NCM based on TCU architecture offers a single-chip integration of platform security, network security and various anomaly detection capabilities. In summary, TCU-based solutions, in-real-time, help protect platform assets and detect vulnerabilities/attacks.
The key TCU-based solution differentiators are:
- Real-time network and behavior anomaly detection
- Smart NIC capabilities of static, wildcard and denial-of-service rules enforcement
- Platform firmware protection, upgrades with resilience
