Taiwan Tech Arena – STARTUP STORY
Taiwanese startup FiduciaEdge Technologies develops Edge security solution for a secure edge computing environment
Edge computing is transforming the way data is handled, processed, and delivered from millions of devices around the world.
FiduciaEdge’s software/firmware plat- form makes edge intelligence trust- worthy, while protecting data privacy at the source. With FiduciaEdge’s solutions, the vulnerable edge computing landscape can be transformed into a trusted/confidential environment with ease. This safe house computational environment not only prevents malicious hackings but also assists in the safe- guarding of datasets and AI algorithms from access by unauthorized users.
Edge intelligence is changing the future of security
Edge computing is rapidly becoming a new trend in data processing and the mainstream in IoT practices, including smart factories, smart cities, smart transportation systems, and other industries that require high availability, low latency, and effective bandwidth usage. These applications often use distributed data processing (known as edge intelligence) for real-time analysis and predictions. FiduciaEdge offers a trusted solution that enhances the security level of edge devices and entire AIoT networks.
Unique solutions for trustworthy edge intelligence and data privacy
FiduciaEdge’s software-based solutions, the “Trusted/Confidential Edge Com- puting Solutions”, ensure information security and user privacy in the 5G/AIoT era. In addition to enhancing security in the edge computing landscape, Fidu- ciaEdge’s confidential edge computing solution also protects the privacy of user datasets and AI algorithms at the source. In the confidential edge com- puting landscape, AI inferencing can be performed under a safehouse environ- ment without the need to disclose raw data, thereby eliminating any potential of data leakage.
An added benefit of adopting Fiduci- aEdge’s software-based solutions is its ease of portability onto any ARM- based embedded platform.
The core technology of FiduciaEdge
Trusted Rich Execution Environment (T-REE)
• Certified Containerized Applications
• Dedicated Processors & Memory
• Protected I/O Channels
• Confidential Computing with Information Isolation
• Remote Attestation & Workflow Control using Smart Contracts
“FiduciaEdge developed T-REE software-based technology, adding a trustworthy and confidential edge computing function on embedded edge nodes and edge servers to make edge intelligence trustworthy and to secure data privacy. Our technologies are currently applied in intelligent transportation systems, smart manufacturing, and smart city infrastructures.
“We have successfully joined the Multi-functional Smart Lampposts initiative with our first customer in Hong Kong. Within the next three years, we will partner with industrial computer suppliers to produce 20,000 trustworthy edge computing nodes for installation in smart lampposts in the public and private sectors. We are also discussing collaboration plans with leading Taiwanese telecom operators to deploy similar smart lampposts and roadside units (RSUs) in Taipei, Taoyuan and Kaohsiung,” said FiduciaEdge Founder Hank Huang.
With this breakthrough application, FiduciaEdge Technologies was selected by Taiwan Tech Arena (TTA) as one of the top 100 featured Taiwanese startups to be showcased at CES 2021.
