Infineon: Mocana Security of Things Platform integrates support for OPTIGA TPM
Infineon and Mocana take IoT security to the next level. Embedded systems security specialist Mocana integrates support for the Infineon OPTIGA TPM security controller as a standard feature into its latest Security of Things Platform.
The Mocana Security of Things Platform secures manifold aspects of connected devices through a comprehensive collection of services such as pre-boot verification, certificate management, cryptographic engines, secured data transport and secured firmware updates. The platform with integrated support for the OPTIGA TPM family will be available in Q4 2016.
OPTIGA TPMs are standalone security controllers based on the international standards of the Trusted Computing Group. TPMs protect integrity and authenticity of embedded systems by implementing advanced cryptographic algorithms in hardware. These established devices have been used successfully to provide security in PCs for over 15 years and are increasingly included into different embedded systems. A TPM can be thought of as a “safe” within the system as it is capable of resisting both logical and physical attacks.
Infineon makes the Internet of Things smart, secure and power efficient. Sensors, controllers, power components and security solutions are the building blocks for all major IoT applications from connected cars to industrial or smart home applications. We help our customers to create sustainable IoT success with benchmarking semiconductor technologies and our system understanding of the automotive, energy and security markets.
