    MIPI Security Investigation Group – A Conversation with Philip Hawkes and Rick Wietfeldt

    Formed in 2019, the MIPI Security Investigation Group (Security IG) was established to provide recommendations for a scalable, uniform MIPI security framework and ongoing support model, as well as to offer guidance to MIPI working groups on overarching security requirements, guiding principles and policies, and external threats.

As part of this effort, the Security IG conducted a technical and strategic evaluation of DMTF’s Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) architecture, which provides message exchange, sequence diagrams, message formats and other relevant semantics for authentication, firmware measurement and certificate management.
