Ligue 1: Neymar and Cavani strike again as PSG go 10 points clear

first_imgNeymar and Edinson Cavani, Paris St Germain’s deadly double act, again delivered a goal apiece in a sluggish 2-0 victory over Troyes that took them 10 points clear of their Ligue 1 challengers on Wednesday.While their nearest chasers lost, Olympique Lyonnais succumbing 2-1 at home to struggling Lille and Monaco falling 1-0 at Nantes after a last-gasp Lucas Lima thunderbolt, PSG marched on without ever hitting top gear.They left it late as a brilliant Neymar strike in the 73rd minute, his 15th PSG goal in all competitions, eased nerves at the Parc des Princes before the Brazilian set up Cavani, who had a first-half penalty saved, to score in stoppage time.The pair had a spirited debate over who should take the penalty, with Cavani winning the argument, but they worked in perfect harmony for the Uruguayan’s 23rd goal, stretching his lead as top marksman in Europe’s major leagues this season.The losses for Lyon and Monaco enabled Olympique de Marseille, with their emphatic 3-0 win at bottom club Metz, to move into second place but they are 10 points adrift of unbeaten PSG, who moved on to 41 points after 15 games.Third-placed Lyon and Monaco, both on 29 points, were left two points behind Marseille.PSG had seemed out of sorts against mid-table opponents they had hammered 9-0 in their last meeting when sealing the title in 2016, but looked to be in charge once Cavani earned the penalty with a theatrical fall under Karim Azamoum’s shirt tug.Just as during a game against Lyon in September when the pair argued over who should take the set-piece duties, Cavani won the day but his 40th minute spot kick was saved by Mamadou Samassa, who was way off his line as the ball was struck.advertisementNeymar, who never stopped trying to galvanise the side, took his one chance superbly, marauding to the edge of the box before unleashing a left-foot shot worthy of the world’s most expensive player.Champions Monaco’s miserable spell continued after their Champions League exit and weekend loss to PSG when Nantes’ Brazilian substitute Lima cracked home a left foot half-volley to give Claudio Ranieri’s side a well deserved win.Lyon’s eight-match unbeaten run in the league was ended surprisingly by Lille, whose goals from Thiago Mendes and Ezequiel Ponce were both aided by poor defending.last_img read more

IAR Systems and Secure Thingz launch Embedded Trust and C-Trust

first_imgIAR Systems and Secure Thingz announce that the security environment Embedded Trust is available for implementation in designs through the embedded development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench. The integration enables designers to include security development as part of their day-to-day development workflow.The Embedded Trust environment leverages the secure hardware built into next-generation microcontrollers to provide the low-level trust anchors and secure services needed for trustworthy IoT solutions. Features include integrated identity and certificate management, a scalable Secure Boot Manager, integrated manufacturing mastering for secure deployment, and release management with versioning and update infrastructure.In addition to Embedded Trust, the companies also provide C-Trust™ for IAR Embedded Workbench®. C-Trust is an extension to the development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench and enables application developers to deliver secure, encrypted code. The development team is able to easily import a so called Security Context Profile, using either a profile created by an Embedded Trust user, or a pre-defined profile. The configuration includes the cryptographic keys and certificates, as well as the Secure Boot Manager configuration including device security, application update process, update policy and device memory layout. Since the correct security and encryption settings are automatically included, the developers can focus on the functionality of the application, and since they cannot change the Security Context Profile, they do not risk compromising it. After building and debugging the application code as usual with IAR Embedded Workbench, the code will be automatically mastered and encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Once programmed into the MCU, the application can be updated with secure code verified by the Secure Boot Manager.Embedded Trust and C-Trust for IAR Embedded Workbench will be showcased at IAR Systems’ booth and at Secure Thingz booth at embedded world 2019.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous Rohde & Schwarz demonstrates test solutions for 5G NR base stations at MWC 2019Next Kontron: Qseven-Q7AMX8X module with quad core i.MX8X for IoT and industry 4.0last_img read more
