The market for security ICs and solutions in the embedded arena is growing tremendously. The driving factors for these markets are authentication (e.g. brand protection of printer cartridges), integrity (e.g. IP protection) and trusted computing (e.g. a root of trust in PCs).
Infineon offers dedicated security concepts scaling from low-end to high-end embedded security solutions
As the leader for hardware-based security with deep insights into embedded control requirements, Infineon enables customers to build security models based on best-in-class products and solutions.
For simplified authentication applications, dedicated cryptographic targets are integrated into hardware for optimum price/protection ratio. An extensive portfolio of security controllers and solutions targets applications in which additional security functionality or certification is required.
Examples range from authentication original parts (brand protection) to devices for very complex trusted computing systems, such as Trusted Platform Modules.
