Advanced security features
As the name suggests, the SMI also includes advanced security features that allow all or part of the Embedded Analytics infrastructure to be locked down. The most obvious scenario when this is required is to prevent customers, end users or malicious actors from capturing information from inside the chip after deployment. But there are more subtle use cases, such as when a chip maker wants to selectively grant access to certain categories of information to a development partner. The SMI is equipped with a simple yet effective set of locks, distributed through the communications fabric, which allows for a broad range of these scenarios.
