Mocana, has added the Infineon OPTIGA Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security controller as a standard feature in its latest Security of Things Platform.

“Developers can rely on solutions with Infineon’s proven hardware and Mocana’s established software,” said Joerg Borchert, vice president of Infineon’s Chip Card and Security Division. “Thus, they can quickly and easily bring to market products and systems that provide the advanced levels of protection these applications demand.”

OPTIGA TPMs are standalone security controllers based on the international standards of the Trusted Computing Group. TPMs are said to protect embedded systems by implementing advanced cryptographic algorithms in hardware. According to Infineon, a TPM can be thought of as a ‘safe’ within the system as it is capable of resisting both logical and physical attacks.

The Mocana Security of Things Platform claims to secure 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 updated platform will be available in Q4 2016.
