One of the ways Qualcomm Technologies is helping the world better connect is by enhancing the security of its products and it does this in part by constantly strengthening its security certification portfolio. Now, it’s latest achievement is acquiring Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) certifications on the cryptographic modules on the Qualcomm Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit, found in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform.
The crypto modules on the Qualcomm TEE received a FIPS Level 140-2 Level 1 certification, while the modules on the Qualcomm Secure Processing Unit were awarded a FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certification. Both subsystems are designed to help safeguard vital and sensitive end user data.
