Infineon Technologies has unveiled Trusted Platform Module (TPM) specifically for automotive applications. The new OPTIGA™ TPM 2.0 protects communication between the car manufacturer and the car which increasingly turns into a computer on wheels. A number of car manufacturers already designed in Infineon’s OPTIGA TPM.
The TPM is a hardware-based security solution using which car manufacturers can incorporate sensitive security keys for assigning access rights, authentication and data encryption in the car in a protected way. The TPM can also be updated so that the level of security can be kept up to date throughout the vehicle’s service life.
With decades of experience in automotive electronics and hardware-based security, and with the new OPTIGA TPM 2.0 and its AURIX family of microcontrollers, Infineon claims to provide a comprehensive portfolio of application-specific security solutions that address key challenges in the automotive industry.
