The Code Security Module (CSM) is a security feature incorporated in Concerto devices. The CSM prevents access and visibility to on-chip secure memories by unauthorized persons—that is, the CSM prevents duplication and reverse-engineering of proprietary code. The word "secure" means that access to on-chip secure memories is protected. The word "unsecure" means that access to on-chip secure memory is not protected—that is, the contents of the memory could be read by any means [for example, by using a debugging tool such as Code Composer Studio™ Integrated Development Environment (IDE)].
