TCG Runtime Integrity Preservation: In Mobile Devices
Most people today use their mobile phones as their primary computing device, conducting day-to-day business ranging from mundane to sensitive. People have come to rely on their devices to be secure and to behave as expected. At the same time, mobile devices represent valuable targets for malicious activity. The challenge for mobile security experts is to design and implement devices with secure architectures and protections commensurate with the mobile threat.
Platform integrity is a fundamental requirement for the security of mobile devices. The TCG Runtime Integrity Preservation in Mobile Devices (RIP) addresses the challenge of platform integrity by recommending best practices and mechanisms to preserve the critical portions of the runtime state of mobile devices.
