I'm using facilities to manage timestamps of events. The platform is ARM Cortex-M3 (LPC1788) and I'm using MCUXpresso IDE (so arm-gcc toolchain). I configured the IDE to use newlib-nano library. It's quite easy to use a time_t variable for a timestamp and use gmtime()/mktime() function to transform the number of seconds from epoch to a broken-down time structure (struct tm, wit

Hi Recently more and more companies want to add security (authentication and/or encryption) to their devices firmware install/update process. Typically this is done by storing a secret encryption key in bootloader or elsewhere in internal MCU flash. This should work if bootloader is installed in secure facility by trusted people. But then manufacturing is outsourced/offshored and t
