Providing a secure foundation for IIoT

Hacking is a serious and costly problem in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It is therefore crucial to make data transfer and storage absolutely secure. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Security Peripheral Module (Pmod) for Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs provides a cost-effective and production-ready solution. Enabling a root of trust for platform integrity, remote attestation, and cryptographic services, TPM Pmod offers the security foundation for IIoT that developers are looking for. 

Featuring Infineon’s OPTIGATM TPM SLB9670 which is compliant to the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) TPM 1.2 specification, this TPM Pmod connects to Xilinx Zynq device via a SPI interface. Along with the downloadable reference design, it is designed to work with the Avnet MicroZed Industrial IoT Starter Kit, enabling measured boot functionality. Other applications include Device Identity, Secure Storage, Secure Communications, and Secure Firmware Upgrade.
