Intrusion prevention in many systems had traditionally been left to the specific demands of that application and to the individual creativity of the system designer. To provide enhanced security in an ever-more-interconnected society, various entities have defined specific standards to eliminate potential holes in the creation of a "secure system." Whether the system is a cash register or a file server, the task of security is essentially identical: prevent any open path for a hacker trying to compromise that system security.

This article by Maxim describes many of the embedded security features in the various DS36xx secure supervisor products. DS36xx products integrate a CPU supervisor, NVSRAM controller, real-time clock (RTC), temperature sensor, analogue-to-digital converter (ADC), random number generator (RNG), and the I/Os and support circuitry necessary to operate this monitoring device on either system power or a battery.
