Embedded cryptography is

[c]ryptography that is engineered into a piece of equipment or system the basic function of which is not cryptographic. Components comprising the cryptographic module are inside the equipment or system and share host-device power and housing. The cryptographic function may be dispersed if identifiable as a separate module within the host.[1]
