Infineon’s Blockchain security 2Go starter kit

With its new Blockchain Security 2Go starter kit, Infineon Technologies looks to provide FinTechs and blockchain designers a fast and easy way to build hardware-based security into their systems.

“The success of the blockchain system hinges on securing user interaction with the distributed database,” said Stefan Rueping, Senior Principal Security Chip Architecture at Infineon Technologies. “Infineon’s Blockchain Security 2Go starter kit allows to quickly develop convenient access solutions based on security tokens or embedded security chips that significantly increase security level and trust. Both are fundamental for successful adoption of blockchain based services.”

The starter kit contains five NFC smart cards based on Infineon’s security controller with blockchain crypto features for several blockchains. Additionally, an open source android app for Ethereum and Smart contract examples is provided. tThe NFC smart cards help blockchain system designers to easily integrate hardware-based security and quickly develop first prototypes of the blockchain application. The security tokens – whether smart cards, dongles or solutions for mobile devices – allow users to securely generate their unique public and private key pairs, authenticate with PIN and sign their data and digital transactions. All the user credentials can be stored in the security controller and hence, be protected from remote attacks on software or the micro-architecture and especially from physical attacks in case the token is stolen or lost.

Infineon’s Blockchain Security 2Go starter kit will be available in Q1 2019. This in addition to the collaboration Infineon announced with Xain to use the AURIX microcontroller with integrated Hardware Security Module to enable blockchain applications in the car, which NE outlined in its latest cover feature which you can read here.
