Protection of Intellectual Property is a major issue as industrial systems become increasingly more interconnected. According to Bartol Filipovic, head of the Product Protection and Industrial Security department at the Fraunhofer Institute for Research “Most companies have no idea just how easy it is to copy their products, encrypted software is not enough to protect standard products or machine code. The software must be ideally stored inside protected hardware.”

Infineon has developed a broad range of semiconductor technologies to counter these growing security threats. The OPTIGA Trust E SLS32AIA hardware security device provides a cost effective solution for high value goods. It forms part of the OPTIGA™ Trust family high-security solution for industrial automation systems, smart homes, consumer and medical devices. The OPTIGA™ Trust E provides enhanced protection of services, business models and user experience. Based on its 1-way authentication mechanism, it uniquely identifies objects and provides protection of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) networks.

The turnkey set-up including preprogrammed key material, aims to simplify system integration. The high-end security controller comes with OS, embedded application and complete host-side integration support and is also compliant with the new USB Type-C standard.

Key Features:
- High-end security controller
- Turnkey solution
- Full system integration support
- I2C Interface
- Up to 3kBytes user memory
- ECC 256 bit, SHA-256
- Standard & extended temperature range (-40°C to +85°C)
- PG-USON-10 package (3 x 3 mm)
- Compliant with new USB Type-C standard

The OPTIGA Trust E comes with an advanced pre-programmed security controller built on Elliptic Curve Cryptography greatly enhancing overall system security. This solution features key and certificate management and includes operating software and system integration support. The extended temperature range of -40 to +85 °C combined with a standardized I²C interface and small USON-10 footprint allows easy integration into a wide variety of embedded projects.
