The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the world in the industry and home. Smart industrial robots, refrigerators, and washing machines already communicate with each other. Yet devices that are online can be attacked. That is why Infineon Technologies AG is adding the OPTIGA Trust X to its OPTIGA Trust family. This hardware-based security solution provides robust security to the diverse applications in the IoT, ranging from smart homes to drones.
The OPTIGA Trust X offers secured communication and software updates, mutual authentication, and much more. Device manufacturers save time and costs thanks to the plug-and-play concept enabling even companies without specialist know-how in the field of security. The solution comprises the chip, the operating system, the applications, software and device drivers, and an evaluation kit. The OPTIGA Trust X can be used in temperatures from –25°C to +85°C and in an extended range from –40°C to +105°C.
