ATECC608A

ATECC608A Widely used security approaches to prevent hacking have failed as attacks have increased.  Today’s top cloud service providers are now increasingly talking about hardware-based security that relies on proven industry-standard cryptographic keys, a secure element like the ATECC608A for isolating them, and a secure boundary so the keys are never exposed. With this approach, each device has a trusted, verified and protected “true” (not spoofed) identity, and the client and host can establish the authenticity of this identity before any devices communicate.
