MUNICH, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX) (OTCQX: IFNNY) will present the world's first Trusted Platform Module (TPM) specifically for industrial applications at this year's Hannover Messe (Hannover, Germany, 1-5 April 2019). The OPTIGA™ TPM SLM 9670 protects the integrity and identity of industrial PCs, servers, industrial controllers or edge gateways. It controls access to sensitive data in key positions in a connected, automated factory as well as at the interface to the cloud.
The TPM acts as a vault for sensitive data in connected devices and lowers the risk of data and production losses due to cyber attacks. The users' benefit is not only limited to security, as TPMs also help to shorten time to market and reduce costs for industrial applications. Through the use of Infineon's audited and certified TPMs, manufacturers of industrial devices can achieve higher security levels of the IEC 62443* standard and accelerate their certification processes. Furthermore, they can cut costs for maintenance of the devices through secured remote software updates.
The OPTIGA TPM SLM 9670 fully meets the TPM 2.0 standard of the Trusted Computing Group and is certified by an independent test lab in accordance with Common Criteria**. With a service life of 20 years and the ability to update the firmware on the chip, the TPM is able to cope with long-term security risks that may be encountered in an industrial environment. The chip boasts an extended temperature range of -40 to 105 degrees Celsius and meets the stringent requirements of industry in terms of robustness and quality as it is qualified according to the industrial JEDEC JESD47 standard.
The OPTIGA TPM SLM 9670 is manufactured at Infineon's security-certified facilities in Germany and will be available in large volumes from the second half of 2019. For more information please go to www.infineon.com/industrial-tpm
