TESIC-SE secure element launched by Tiempo Secure for high security with low power IoT

Tiempo Secure’s new TESIC-SE secure element, based on the company’s patented asynchronous design technology, aims to bring the advantages of security, speed and ultra low power consumption of asynchronous architecture to the booming Internet of Things (IoT) security market.

Tiempo Secure, a semi-conductor provider focusing on high-end secure products, is is introducing its new development dedicated to securing the Internet of Things. Designed with the security requirements of IoT markets in mind, the TESIC-SE secure element family is built upon Tiempo’s patented fully asynchronous design technology, which combines high security and high speed with ultra low power consumption.

The Tiempo TESIC-SE family is to be used as a hardware secure element in an IoT object architecture. It incorporates all the needed security functions such as secure secret storage/file system, secure Over The Air (OTA) firmware update, and cryptography systems including an ECC hardware accelerator and an AES hardware accelerator supporting encryption and decryption up to 256 bits.

The specific clockless architecture of Tiempo products means they benefit from a very low current consumption level, under 500 nA in sleep mode, leading to a battery life expectancy over 10 years, associated with a very fast switching mechanism between the active and the sleep modes.

The TESIC-SE secure element family is Common Criteria certification ready as it is derived from Tiempo TESIC-SC secure chip dedicated to the banking card segment, which is already certified Common Criteria EAL 5+.

Tiempo Secure TESIC-SE secure element family is already available as IP, to be integrated by chip designers. It will be available as a standalone chip early 2018. Tiempo Secure also provides support services for integrators using the Tiempo TESIC-SE family including chip provisioning, security assessment and certification support.

The TESIC-SE family brings a breakthrough solution to the pressing demand for security of the IoT market. Smart Insights, an analyst firm specialising in the secure transactions industry, estimates that the market for IoT security will reach EUR 21.5 billion in revenue for the security solution providers by 2022.

Serge Maginot, CEO of Tiempo, said: “With the Tiempo TESIC-SE family we bring a complete offer to tackle all market segments from IoT to banking. The efficiency and robustness of our asynchronous architecture ensures all our customers will benefit from design advantages in terms of security, ultra low power consumption and speed.”
