Data I/O, the leading global provider of security deployment solutions for IoT and electronics device manufacturing, announces the production availability of SentriX provisioning support for the EdgeLock SE050 Secure Element from NXP Semiconductors.
Data I/O and NXP are collaborating closely to bring the industry leading EdgeLock SE050 Secure Element and SentriX provisioning support to market.
IoT security is moving from a must have requirement to a business enabler. The multitude of revenue generating applications and OEM product brands that must be protected requires great flexibility from device security hardware and software.
In addition to flexibility, IoT and consumer electronics OEMs also need simplicity due to increasing time to market pressure. The best design approach for OEMs is to build hardware-based security into their products.
NXP’s EdgeLock SE050 Secure Element together with Data I/O SentriX enabled provisioning as-a-service offers the best combination of hardware-based security robustness, design flexibility and manufacturing production ease of use available today.
Data I/O SentriX enabled provisioning as-a-service for security ICs and microcontrollers is available through multiple franchise component distributors and silicon device programming centers.
The SentriX system from Data I/O, combined with other services provided by distributors, programming centers and EMS partners, allows OEMs of any size to securely provision EdgeLock SE050 Secure Element from early samples all the way to high volume production.
“We are pleased to collaborate with NXP to provide a trusted security deployment solution for NXP’s new EdgeLock SE050 Secure Element,” said Anthony Ambrose, president and CEO of Data I/O Corporation.
“The SentriX security deployment system enables OEMs to embed a hardware-based root-of-trust in the EdgeLock SE050 device during the manufacturing flow at production scale.
“Because Data I/O provides the SentriX platform-as-a-service to component distributors and programming centers, its capability is available to OEMs with no minimum order quantities but scales to very high volume.
“As the IoT market grows and attacks become increasingly prevalent, OEMs of all sizes must have a cost-effective and integrated method to enable hardware-based security.”
“Device personalization and secure, simplified cryptographic key provisioning are critical elements to a customer’s need and experience,” said Philippe Dubois, vice president and general manager of IoT security and smart mobility and retail at NXP Semiconductors.
“Thanks to our collaboration with Data I/O, our customers can effortlessly personalize and tailor their OEM devices with individual keys and credentials on EdgeLock SE050 Secure Element to meet their needs and volumes.
“Additionally, the EdgeLock SE050 ‘Plug & Trust’ features allow a broad range of customers to implement high-performance security for sensing and control, secure connections to multiple cloud services, and offers integrity protection for their IoT platforms.”
Data I/O and NXP have collaborated to bring this important provisioning support to market, following NXP’s A71CH Plug & Trust Secure Element supported by the SentriX Secure Provisioning System.
