STMicroelectronics and ClevX have announced to expand their collaboration for introducing a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant Encryption Technology Platform reference design. It is meant for security applications through the use of commercial/industrial grade chips; rather than the military ones.
The STM32 microcontroller-based platform aids designers and manufacturers so as to design and build highly secure FIPS-compliant solutions that are suitable for applications demanding certified cryptographic functions. These application domains include consumer, corporate and industrial applications in home automation, portable data storage, security, healthcare, and secure access control systems.
The new reference design is based on ClevX-patented DataLock/ DataLock BT technology platform for secure portable-storage media. The design makes use of ST’s ultra-low-power STM32 MCUs and Bluetooth Low Energy Chips (BlueNRG) alongside ST/ClevX-based hardware and firmware.
“Using the STM32’s advanced security features helped ClevX fortify their secure portable-storage reference platform,” said Tony Keirouz, VP IoT Strategy, Security, and Microcontrollers, STMicroelectronics’ Americas Region. “With the reference platform’s quality independently proven through its FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification, and the benefit of using high-quality commercial-grade products instead of military-grade ones, designers and manufacturers can meet their application’s security needs on time and on budget.”
It plays a pioneer role in the Security/Mobility markets and leads the industry with its secure, portable, USB storage platform.
It’s a global semiconductor leader delivering intelligent and energy efficient products and solutions powering the electronics
