PSoC 64 Standard Secure MCU family achieves PSA Level 2 certification

Infineon Technologies has achieved the Arm Platform Security Architecture (PSA) Level 2 certification for the PSoC 64 microcontrollers (MCUs) standard secure family of devices.

Level 2 certification includes a laboratory evaluation of the PSA Root of Trust (PSA-RoT) to provide evidence that devices can protect against scalable software attacks. The labs use vulnerability analysis and penetration testing of the PSA-RoT to establish if the nine security requirements of the PSA-RoT Protection Profile have been met.

These MCUs were one of the first Arm Cortex-M processors to be certified as PSA Level 1-compliant, now with the new PSA Level 2 certification, IoT systems developers have an extended level of trust when they use PSoC 64 secured MCUs, which are equipped with the Arm PSA holistic set of threat models, security analyses, hardware and firmware architecture specifications.

The PSoC 64 MCUs have been developed for cloud-connected applications that require protection of user data and trustworthy firmware updates, including personal healthcare devices and home security solutions.

Commenting Erik Wood, Director of IoT Secure MCU Products, Infineon Technologies said, “This next-level of certification further assures our IoT solution developers that their smart, connected devices are built on a secured foundation, in line with PSA. Additionally, this certification builds on our secured platform, making customers’ lives simpler, and more secured.”
