UEI has the right cybersecurity solutions to keep your data secure

We offer a suite of cybersecurity tools to help you on your pathway to NIST 800.213 compliance. This includes secure boot, FIPS 140.2 encryption, and 100% control of your hardware and software.

At the heart of our tool suite is the UEI-SAT security automation configurator that takes the engineering and guesswork out of implementing your algorithms, security technical implementation guide (STIG) items, controls, and security protocols. UEI also provides a Secure Linux Toolkit preloaded with libraries to springboard your security development. And when you secure your hardware and software with UEI-SAT, you can add-on the ability to continuously monitor your system to ensure no malicious activity occurs. It's our mission to provide you with the right hardware, tools and support you need during your cybersecurity development and implementation stages.

UEI-SAT Set Up & Features | Cyber Secure Hardware

UEI’s hardware is designed with the latest tools to keep your data safe and secure. UEI offers easy-to-use cybersecurity solutions that address key features in FPGAs and processors.



  • Secure boot firmware in ROM or flash, executed on start up, encryption
  • Encrypted (FIPS 140.2)
  • Locking flash



  • Two types: symmetric & asymmetric
  • Data at rest
  • Data in motion: for communication
  • ARM TrustZone– silicon features that combines memory protection and secure I/O to make a secure environment



  • Keeping secrets safe with memory protection
  • Physically Unclonable Function (PUF)
  • TPM optional
  • Monitors physical enclosure and power to detect possible tampering



  • Password or challenge/response to open JTAG
  • Locking peripherals
  • Circuits in silicon designed so that electromagnetic signatures (EM) or power analysis do not reveal secrets
  • Can also include protections against physical decomposition of silicon

UEI's Supports NIST SP 800.213: How The Cybersecurity Framework Controls Relationships

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has put forth special publication NIST SP 800.53 as a list of specific controls and recommendations to support the design/development and use of secure government IT systems -- outlining how to manage availability, confidentiality, and integrity of data. United States federal/government contractors and agencies must comply with NIST SP 800.53 (Fig. 1). Some state/local governments, and private organizations are adopting these NIST security practices as well.

An integral part of the 800 NIST series is the special publication NIST SP 800.213 and its cybersecurity governance over embedded devices.

NIST SP 800.213

NIST SP 800.213A

  • The “Cybersecurity Guidance for the Federal Government - Establishing IoT Device Cybersecurity Requirements”
  • Provides background and recommendations so organizations can consider how their embedded device(s) can integrate into systems
  • Devices and their support for security controls are outlined in the context of organizational/system risk
  • Support of system security considerations from a device perspective – better identify cybersecurity requirements
  • Part A of 800.213, the “IoT Device Cybersecurity Guidance for the Federal Government: IoT Device Cybersecurity Requirement Catalog”
  • 800-213A is a catalog of device cybersecurity features and functions required to properly support 800.213, as well as a catalog of non-technical supporting capabilities, such as support required from device manufacturers
  • The catalog consists of the following:
    • Device Security, Protection, Identification, and Configuration
    • Data Protection
    • Logical Access to Interfaces
    • Software Update
    • Cybersecurity State Awareness

For reference:

  • NIST SP 800.171: A special publication that outlines recommended requirements for protecting the confidentiality of controlled unclassified information (CUI). Defense contractors must implement the recommended requirements contained within to protect covered defense information included in their defense contracts, as required by DFARS clause 252.204-7012.
  • NISTIR 8259: A series of reports that provides guidance for manufacturers and supporting third parties as they design, develop, test, sell, and support embedded devices. It consists of three final documents and one draft document.
  • ISO/IEC 27002: An information security standard that provides best practice recommendations on information security controls for use by those developing and implementing information security management systems (ISMS). Revised in 2022.
