By apacciooutlook | Monday, December 03, 2018
FREMONT, CA: Avnet, a global technology distributor, releases an additional module and reference design, Infineon TPM V1.2 Peripheral Module, for its MicroZed Industrial IoT Kit. Based on the OPTIGA TPM SLB9670 security solution from Infineon Technologies AG, this module offers Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security capabilities for platform integrity, remote attestation and cryptographic services.
Mainly designed for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications, the solution utilizes Infineon’s TPM and Zynq’s Programmable SoC multi-layered security features, to offer advanced levels of cybersecurity. It connects to the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC from Xilinx, Inc., which is included on Avnet’s MicroZed System-on-Module (SOM). The solution has a downloadable reference design that enables measured boot functionality for the Avnet MicroZed SOM. The Infineon TPM add-on module also supports additional use cases such as device identity, secure storage, secure communications, and secure firmware upgrade.
The low-cost Pmod enables designers to easily explore a range of security options often required for factory automation, smart cities, smart grid, and healthcare applications. Infineon TPM V1.2 Peripheral Module is compliant to the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) TPM 1.2 specification and connects to Zynq via an SPI interface.
It enables measured boot functionality for the Avnet MicroZed Industrial IoT Starter Kit, featuring the Xilinx Zynq 7Z010 running WindRiver’s Pulsar Linux operating system. TPM add-on module also supports additional use cases such as Device Identity, Secure Storage, Secure Communications, and Secure Firmware Upgrade.
