Security chips address counterfeiting concerns

Security chips

Infineon, which has earlier done custom work to address "very specific" security requirements, is attempting to address the market more broadly with its Optiga embedded security chip families that provide different levels of security for systems ranging from IT infrastructure to single systems that consist of a device and a suitable accessory, such as an MP3 player and headphones. The product families include Optiga TPM, which secures the system integrity of IT networks and Optiga Trust for secure device authentication.

Infineon announced sampling in March of the Optiga Trust P ("P" is for programmable) ICs, which generate and store encryption keys for one-way and mutual authentication. The ICs, now in volume production, bring security to any product that stores and exchanges confidential data—whether used in smart homes or factories. Their encrypted communications capability, claims the company, helps defend from attackers trying to obtain personal or company data or attempting to tamper with programming through Internet connections or machine-to-machine (M2M) communications links.
