In case of OPTIGA™ TPM SLI 9670, why hardware based security? (KA-01498)
Hardware-based security provides a secured environment with dedicated computing and storage units designed specifically for cryptographic functions such as authentication and encryption. Software that runs on secured hardware cannot be read out, analyzed, copied or manipulated.
IFX offers a portfolio of security solutions for cars that deliver scalable levels of protection. This includes our AURIX™ microcontrollers and our dedicated security controller OPTIGA™ TPM 2.0 for automotive applications.
Standardized, certified security solutions like our TPM offer additional benefits: They are manufactured in Infineon’s secured production environment, which is audited by independent third parties. This means that security keys can be integrated on site at Infineon under highly secure conditions, thus eliminating the need for additional, dedicated security measures at subsequent steps in the value chain.
