Microchip Trust Platform for IoT security

Sunday, 01 December, 2019 | Supplied by: Microchip Technology Australia


Hardware-based security is the only way to protect secret keys from physical attacks and remote extraction, but extensive security expertise, development time and costs are required to configure and provision each device. Manufacturers typically have only been able to support configuring and provisioning for high-volume orders, leaving companies with low- to mid-sized deployments with low-performing options.

To address this need in the mass market, Microchip has introduced what is claimed to be the industry’s first pre-provisioned solution that provides secure key storage for low-, mid- and high-volume device deployments using the ATECC608A secure element. Microchip’s Trust Platform for its CryptoAuthentication family enables companies of all sizes to easily implement secure authentication.

The Trust Platform consists of a three-tier offering, providing out-of-the-box pre-provisioned, preconfigured or fully customisable secure elements, allowing developers to choose the platform best suited to their individual design. The first tier, Trust&GO, provides zero-touch pre-provisioned secure elements with a minimum orderable quantity (MOQ) as low as 10 units. The second tier in the program, TrustFLEX, offers the flexibility to use the customer’s certificate authority of choice while still benefiting from preconfigured use cases. For those who would like to entirely customise their designs, the third tier in the program — TrustCUSTOM — provides customer-specific configuration capabilities and custom credential provisioning.

Microchip worked with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable a straightforward and simplified onboarding process into AWS IoT services for products designed with all variants of the Microchip Trust Platform.
