Galaxy S20 Secure Processor : What Is It?

This short video gives you a quick overview of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Secure Processor’s key features :

Enhanced Hardware Security

Hackers can manipulate components (physical attacks), provoke hardware errors (fault attacks), or analyze heat and electromagnetic emissions (side-channel attacks) to breach smartphone security.

These hardware attacks can only happen if the hacker gets hold of the device physically. But with Galaxy S20 smartphones, their Secure Processor provides a physical shield against such attacks.

The Galaxy S20 Secure Processor continuously scrambles and encrypts the confidential data it stores. It also detects invalid voltage or temperature changes, and is equipped with security algorithms to thwart side-channel attacks.

Extra Level Of Protection

Security at the user level is also critical. To that end, the Galaxy S20 Secure Processor ensures that your lock screen PIN, pattern and password are not susceptible to guesses.

It accomplishes this by making it almost impossible for attackers to reset the error counter, which monitors the number of failed unlock attempts.

Support For Private Keys

The Galaxy S20 Secure Processor can also process blockchain private keys, which are similar to banking passwords for crypto-currency wallets.

It even supports Strongbox Keymaster, which allows it to provide hardware protection for private keys or sensitive data on third-party apps.
