STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader, and Security Platform Inc., a Korea-based technology innovator for IoT, have come together to offer easy-to-use, robust, and efficient security solutions for IoT devices.
IoT comprises billions of tiny, embedded computing devices that are connected to the internet and share data with the Cloud. Hence there is a need for a strong, yet lightweight and convenient security to prevent cyber-attackers intercepting sensitive information or infecting connected devices with malware.
Trusted computing helps keep networks safe by combining specially designed secure ICs and software that help in ensuring the integrity and verify the credentials of any connected device. St and Security Platform are making efforts to simplify the implementation of highly secure IoT devices by thereby; leveraging Trusted Computing principles.

ST’s STSAFE-TPM is a Trusted Platform Module that offers secure data storage through cryptographic keys used for authentication, proven techniques like anti-tamper, memory protection, and data watching prevention. It also meets industry-recognized security standards including Trusted Computing Group (TCG) TPM 1.2 and TPM 2.0 protection profiles, IT-security Common Criteria Level 4+ (CC EAL4+) certification, and US Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2.
Moving on, the Axio-OS secure operating system and Axio-RA remote-attestation verification solution check for the breach of integrity by verifying the hash information of the device from a separate server. In addition, these modules provide anti-cloning and anti-forgery protection, and process device authentication, message signing, and security update using only the appropriate signing code.
STSAFE-TPMs are available within the larger STSAFE family of ICs, which are tailored to support platform integrity, authentication, secure storage, and other cryptographic services in various classes of connected devices from small IoT devices to industrial or consumer products, and desktop computers.
