Infineon Leads Industry with Trusted Computing: New OPTIGA™ TPM Security Controller with SPI Bus is First to Receive Common Criteria Certificate
Munich, Germany, and San Francisco, USA – April 23, 2015 – Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) today announced that its new OPTIGA™ TPM (Trusted Platform Module) with SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) has achieved Common Criteria Certification EAL4+. The certificate was presented to Infineon by the German Federal Office for Information Security (known as BSI) at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. This certification enables system manufacturers and users to distinguish and select trustworthy solutions based on internationally recognized and independent testing.
The OPTIGA ™ TPM family provides hardware-based security for system applications across industrial, embedded, mobile or tablets as well as traditional computing environments. The newly certified OPTIGA™ TPM 1.2 with SPI bus is the first of a next-generation of TPMs developed to meet future market requirements. The chip is based on Infineon’s security crypto controller and SOLID FLASH™ embedded memory. With its broad market deployment, the SPI bus is ideal for personal computers. But it also supports the use of TPMs in an even wider area such as industrial computing and embedded systems that are increasingly connected like IoT gateways, routers or even surveillance cameras. These applications may benefit, in particular, from an optimized interface with high performance.
The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is defined by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG), which provides open standards intended to enable safe computing environments in multiple end applications. As the market leader for TPMs, Infineon was the first to develop TPM 2.0 and now extends its lead with certified devices with SPI bus.
