Infineon Intros IoT Cloud Localization Services and Security Solutions

Infineon Technologies has announced the availability of its hardened security solutions for Amazon Web Services' Internet of Things (AWS IoT) Greengrass, based on the OPTIGA family of hardware security solutions. Infineon is one of the initial companies to offer a suite of solutions for hardening security across the spectrum of connected devices on AWS IoT, either at the edge or at endpoints. The firm's security solutions for the IoT comprise OPTIGA TPM 2.0 SLB9670 for edge applications and OPTIGA Trust X for endpoints.

AWS IoT Greengrass is software that lets users securely run local computing, messaging, data caching, synching and machine-learning inference capabilities for connected devices. With AWS IoT Greengrass, connected devices can run AWS Lambda functions, keep device data in synch and communicate with other devices securely, even when not connected to the Internet.

"New reference designs from Infineon design will allow customers to effortlessly integrate AWS IoT solutions with Infineon's microcontrollers and security chips," said Joerg Borchert, Infineon Americas' VP of digital security solutions, in a prepared statement. "This will allow for fast development times for hassle-free integration, offering enhanced security for IoT and Industry 4.0 devices connected to an AWS IoT Greengrass-enabled device instead of the cloud."

According to the company, both new and existing AWS IoT Greengrass customers operating in a range of industries, such as government services, health care and industrial manufacturing, can benefit from the security solutions offered by Infineon and AWS. Infineon's Trusted Platform Module (TPM) SLB9670 features a fully TCG TPM 2.0 standard-compliant module.

The SLB9670 features a TCG-compliant SPI interface to facilitate integration with micro architectures, and offers application-level security, secure software-over-the-air updates and TPM root of trust. The SLB9760 security controller can be mounted on an OPTIGA TPM2.0 Linux development board, which can be integrated on Raspberry Pi 3 boards. The OPTIGA Trust X security controller is a turnkey security solution for IoT devices. It is available as a ready-to-use Infineon evaluation board equipped with a 32-bit XMC4800 microcontroller.
