ST launches new advanced security modules

Wednesday 23 November 2016 | 15:51 CET | News

STMicroelectronics introduced ST33HTPH2ESPI and ST33HTPH20SPI, two security modules that provide an industry-validated shield to protect computers and smart connected devices against cyber-attacks.

The new STSafe Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) store system-authentication data such as cryptographic keys and software measurements in inaccessible and unalterable hardware, offering an industry-standardised way to protect PCs and servers, as well as other home and office equipment such as printers, copiers, home gateways, network routers, and switches. This protected storage prevents attackers from interfering with the device's integrity, stealing private data, or taking over the system to gain unauthorised access or privileges that would put the system, data, or its network at risk.

The STSafe-TPM modules leverage ST's expertise with the ARM SecurCoreSC300 processor, which has anti-tamper, data-watching, and memory-protection features. Both devices are Common Criteria (CC) and Trusted Computing Group (TCG) certified against the applicable TPM 1.2 and 2.0 protection profiles and US Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certifications are in progress. The new modules come with RSA and ECC Endorsement Keys (EKs) needed to support authentication and associated key certificates are provided, signed by the independent certification authority Globalsign to guarantee authenticity.

The two security modules are available in either a TSSOP28 or QFN32 package. Both devices are in production now.
