Trustonic, provider of Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) for smart connected devices, is collaborating with Alcatel OneTouch to bring hardware-class authentication to its devices, starting with the new flagship handset HERO 2.
Trustonic’s t-base TEE technology provides a hardware-isolated space that service providers can harness to provide secure content delivery from the studio to the consumer. The collaboration between the two companies is designed to enable network operators to deploy new services and premium content without having to pre-integrate with the device maker.
Incorporating Trustonic’s t-base TEE technology, Alcatel OneTouch’s handset range now offers High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP), enabling viewing of premium content on an additional device screen.

Dan Dery, CMO of Alcatel OneTouch, added: “Providing customers with seamless and enjoyable experiences when using their mobile devices is one of our main priorities. Consumers want to access the service they need on devices they trust. This is why we’ve selected Trustonic’s t-base TEE technology to feature in our latest devices. Our collaboration will enable mobile network operators to push premium services and content in a secure manner and also allow our customers to enjoy them without the extra hassle associated with fragmented authentication.”
