With the combination of ISO/SAE 21434 and CC EAL6+ (high) certificates, Infineon’s SLI37 controllers provide the best benchmark for security verification in the automotive world today.”

The hardware-based security features of ISO/SAE 21434 certified devices can provide a reliable foundation for a multi-layered security architecture, enabling a root-of-trust. Moreover, this plays an important role in the automotive industry, where system security is mandatory for vehicle safety. Therefore, Infineon’s SLI37 automotive cybersecurity solutions provide a secured foundation for automotive applications to comply with the ISO/SAE 21434 standard.

TÜV-IT GmbH, an accredited and independent security evaluator, conducted a security evaluation as part of the certification process.
