As the number and types of connected devices proliferates, market fragmentation and security vulnerabilities in the Internet of Things (IoT) have created significant challenges for developers. Hardware-based security is the only way to protect secret keys from physical attacks and remote extraction, but extensive security expertise, development time and costs are required to configure and provision each device. With companies producing anywhere from hundreds to millions of connected devices per year across the globe, scalability of architecture can be a major barrier to deployments. Manufacturers typically have only been able to support configuring and provisioning for high-volume orders, leaving companies with low- to mid-sized deployments with low performing options. To address this need in the mass market, Microchip introduced the industry’s first pre-provisioned solution that provides secure key storage for low-, mid- and high-volume device deployments using the ATECC608A secure element. Microchip’s Trust Platform for its CryptoAuthentication™ family enables companies of all sizes to easily implement secure authentication.
