Mocana Corporation is supporting the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 to enable device manufacturers to more easily build products that meet cybersecurity standards.
Used to secure billions of computer hardware and financial systems, TPM technology uses a unique secret key embedded into a microchip or firmware.
This could help IoT device manufacturers more easily secure storage, communications, firmware updates and containerized applications.
“As the pace of cyber attacks on IoT and industrial systems increases, there is a critical need for stronger security on IoT devices,” said Srinivas Kumar, vice president of engineering, Mocana. “TPM technology has been used broadly to prove the identity of a computer or financial transaction device. We are now enabling the latest TPM 2.0 feature set on IoT devices, which will significantly reduce the effort for our customers to leverage the technology and avoid reading the more than 3,000 pages of TPM technical documentation.”
TPM is an international standard for a secure cryptoprocessor, a dedicated microcontroller designed to secure hardware through integrated cryptographic keys. TPM was conceived by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG), a computer industry consortium, and was later standardized by International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in 2009 as ISO/IEC 11889.
Key features and benefits of Mocana’s support of TPM 2.0 for IoT and industrial devices include:
• Advanced Ciphers Support
• Multiple Ownership of Keys
• Better seeding for entropy
• Support for Windows and Linux
• Pre-integrated support
• Compliance with cybersecurity standards
• Secure storage
• Secure communications
• Secure firmware updates
• Secure containerized applications
