Infineon Technologies AG today announced the company has achieved the Arm® Platform Security Architecture (PSA) Level 2 certification for the PSoC™ 64 microcontrollers (MCUs) standard secure family of devices. The Level 2 certification includes a laboratory evaluation of the PSA Root of Trust (PSA-RoT) to provide evidence that devices can protect against scalable software attacks. The evaluation labs use vulnerability analysis and penetration testing of the PSA-RoT to establish if the nine security requirements of the PSA-RoT Protection Profile have been met.
Infineon’s PSoC 64 secured MCUs were one of the first Arm® Cortex®-M processors to be certified as PSA Level 1-compliant. With the new PSA Level 2 certification, developers of IoT systems have an extended level of trust when they use PSoC 64 secured MCUs, which are equipped with the Arm® PSA holistic set of threat models, security analyses, hardware and firmware architecture specifications. The PSoC 64 MCUs are ideal for cloud-connected applications that require protection of user data and trustworthy firmware updates, including personal healthcare devices and home security solutions.
“As a leader in IoT and security solutions, we are excited to pass the rigorous lab testing for the PSA Level 2 certification,” said Erik Wood, Director of IoT Secure MCU Products, Infineon Technologies. “This next-level of certification further assures our IoT solution developers that their smart, connected devices are built on a secured foundation, in line with PSA. Additionally, this certification builds on our secured platform, making customers’ lives simpler, and more secured.” CT Bureau
