Securing the network – the nervous system of IoT
Networks, servers and IT infrastructure function as the brain and backbone of any IoT system. Though invisible to the naked eye, they have the power to connect devices, equipment and, in some instances, entire factories. Since information and communication technology (ICT) systems live from data flowing in and out, they are, by nature, vulnerable to attacks. Strong security measures embedded within such systems protect business-critical and personal data against unauthorized access and manipulation. Embedded security solutions such as Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) answer the demand for reliable ICT security.
The dynamic ICT infrastructure behind IoT requires a system-level security solution to ensure secure end-to-end communication. After all, security vulnerabilities increase with rapid interface growth. In addition to preventing manipulation, a security system must prevent unauthorized access. Only clearly identified clients and devices may exchange data – be it in the cloud or in a private or corporate network. The solution must identify compromised devices immediately and take the appropriate countermeasures. Furthermore, network equipment manufacturers increasingly seek technologies that enable remote maintenance, device management and new business models, with feature authorization.
Because conventional systems with nothing more than software-based security mechanisms are relatively easy to attack and manipulate, a strong ICT security solution begins on a chip’s hardware. Ideally, such a solution relies on hardware-based security, such as systems from Infineon.
As the long-standing market leader, Trusted Computing innovator, and expert with decades of experience in the traditional chip card sector, Infineon offers you incomparable expertise in the field of information and communication technology. In our broad portfolio, you’ll find a range of top-of-the-line standardized, certified TPM security systems, such as our:
