In the coming five years, smartphones mobile data traffic is reckon to undergo a ten-fold growth rocketing mobile security demands. With apace growth into the mobile security solutions, Infineon is notably underpinning its global position in mobile security solutions.
Now, the German semiconductor manufacturer has introduced OPTIGA Mobile, which is known to help mobile device manufacturers and OS providers to improve the security of their products while reducing investment in security critical production equipment and processes.
The new brand is claimed to extend Infineon’s OPTIGA range of embedded security solutions with dedicated services around mobile security.
OPTIGA Mobile services include among others:
- In-house generation and injection of keys (symmetric and asymmetric) and (CA-signed) public/private certificates
- Pre-loading of customer provided static and dynamic data
- Chip-individual code and data
- Customer-specific marking and labelling on packages
- Direct shipments to handset manufacturers or customer manufacturing sites
Commenting on the new rollout, Juergen Spaenkuch, head of platform security at Infineon said, “With OPTIGA Mobile, we provide all building blocks for implementing a hardware-based Root of Trust in mobile devices”. “Our customers can now seamlessly integrate our chips into existing production and logistic lines. This gives them a competitive advantage and helps to maximize mobile security to the benefit of end users.”
Embedding security controllers into mobile devices is a challenging task: device manufacturers and OS providers face a broad range of security-critical processes as well as special logistic requirements for packaging and transport. With its OPTIGA Mobile offering, Infineon delivers customized turnkey security solutions and services directly to the customers’ production site. All security relevant production steps are handled within Infineon’s certified and secured manufacturing premises.
