Titan the Google chip for the security of your systems

titan chips

In the previous image we see on the right the image and the size of the two Google Titan security chips. One of them is Titan, a chip used for the servers and the Google Titan Security Key USB key, while the other is Titan M, a reduced version for mobile devices such as the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones that will be launched soon. to the market. With them, Google ensures that they will be the safest Android mobile devices in the world, since it brings this security technology from the servers to our telephones ...

But what is this titan chip? Well, that's what I'm going to deal with in this article. As I hinted in the first paragraph, these types of chips are implemented by various Google products. The main one is the servers, as can be seen in the image below on the left in the main image. And the other is the Key that is shown in the upper left image… With this USB security key you can have devices that are more resistant to phishing due to the authentication technologies that it implements, greater security for users and companies. If you are interested you can buy it at googlestore, just as you can now reserve the Pixel 3 from that same place ... Now, what makes the smartphone, servers and Key such a safe product is the chip that they keep inside, the Titan, either in its Titan or Titan M version:

    • -Titan m- With the chip, you can control the Android secure boot process, as well as save the latest known version of the system safely to prevent attacks that are based on tampered versions of firmware. It also blocks attempts to unlock the bootloader to run any other firmware, unless the passcode is entered and consented. The hardware will also be in charge of verifying the access code to the lock screen, managing the security fingerprints of the sensor, limiting the number of attempts to access the session to avoid brute force attacks, and all with total independence, and from a protected flash memory. Ultimately it will protect the most critical operations to avoid security problems. The only downside I see is that it would limit the use of enthusiast-modified ROMs that can be installed on the mobile device ...
    • -Titan: is the chip used in Google Cloud servers and data centers, to offer unprecedented security. Like the previous one, Titan is also in charge of establishing secure boot protocols for these servers. Everything is managed by this low consumption chip. This is done thanks to an internal cryptography engine. This chip can also verify and manage the authentication systems (logins, passwords, signatures, ...) to make them more robust.

That is, with these chips, both Android devices, in this case only Google Pixel 3 onwards, and Google servers and those with a Titan Security Key, may have these security measures on their computers, something similar to what is implemented in Apple with the chips Apple T-Series like T1 and T2, also based on ARM and intended for protection ...

    Unfortunately, it is a mistake for Google to commit that since in Linux a number one in the computer world is surrounded by criminals and everything is black magic in the world of Linux through the system for you or as Ubuntu touch Y then the CEO of Google They are already partner groups that have malicious social engineering to develop teams with bad intentions that I have had with other people who are very offensive there with bullying problems and will be promoting terrorism I do not understand to see each other again and that's it definitely really that this is what I have called techno dictatorship! Absolutely these three pixels are a big mistake🤬🤬🤬
