MCUs Embed Trusted Firmware-M Security

Infineon Technologies has announced a solution that combines the Cypress PSoC  64 Secure microcontrollers with Trusted Firmware-M embedded security, the Arm Mbed IoT OS and the Arm Pelion IoT platform to securely design, manage and update IoT products without the need for custom security firmware. The Pelion-Ready and Mbed OS-Enabled solution demonstrates industry best practices for security, by reaching PSA Certified Level 1.

Implementing Trusted Firmware-M with PSoC 64 significantly simplifies device security implementation. The open-source software delivers configurable components that enable PSA Functional APIs and create a “Secure Processing Environment” (SPE) for Arm Cortex -M-based microcontrollers. The PSoC 64 root of trust makes it easier for IoT device makers to achieve PSA Certified for their end products.

According to Infineon, the Pelion Device Management offers secured device management at every product lifecycle stage, from provisioning to decommissioning. It incorporates a dual-core architecture, with an Arm Cortex-M4 core to run applications and an Arm Cortex-M0+ core used as a security coprocessor with a pre-configured root-of-trust.

Through the acquisition of Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, the PSoC 64 secure microcontroller line is now part of Infineon.

The PSoC 64 Secure Boot Wi-Fi/BT Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-064B0S2-4343W) is ready for order here. The low-cost hardware platform enables design and debug of the PSoC 64 Secure Boot MCU and the Murata Type 1DX Module (CYW4343W Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Combo Chip).
