Trust Platform for the Microchip CryptoAuthentication Family
Semiconductor provider Microchip Technology recently announced a new security offering called Trust Platform for its CryptoAuthentication Integrated Circuits (ICs)—small devices that include hardware-based secure storage. The aim is to get Internet of Things (IoT) deployments, both large and small, up and running in a matter of hours, rather than days, and at affordable prices that will also appeal to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).
Microchip is aiming to tackle a real bottleneck in the IoT security market. Identifying and authenticating devices is often a technical and expensive headache for IoT deployers, and often out of reach for smaller outfits with limited resources. There are few simple and easy to use solutions in the market, but the firm is offering a credible platform for smaller-sized deployments that may not command an additional US$100,000 for key provisioning services.
