PSoC 64 standard secure MCU family achieves PSA level 2 certification for more secured IoT devices

Infineon Technologies AG announced the company has achieved the Arm Platform Security Architecture (PSA) Level 2 certification for the PSoC 64 microcontrollers (MCUs) standard secure family of devices.

The Level 2 certification includes a laboratory evaluation of the PSA Root of Trust (PSA-RoT) to provide evidence that devices can protect against scalable software attacks. The evaluation labs use vulnerability analysis and penetration testing of the PSA-RoT to establish if the nine security requirements of the PSA-RoT Protection Profile have been met.

Infineon’s PSoC 64 secured MCUs were one of the first Arm® Cortex®-M processors to be certified as PSA Level 1-compliant. With the new PSA Level 2 certification, developers of IoT systems have an extended level of trust when they use PSoC 64 secured MCUs, which are equipped with the Arm PSA holistic set of threat models, security analyses, hardware and firmware architecture specifications. The PSoC 64 MCUs are ideal for cloud-connected applications that require protection of user data and trustworthy firmware updates, including personal healthcare devices and home security solutions.

“As a leader in IoT and security solutions, we are excited to pass the rigorous lab testing for the PSA Level 2 certification,” says Erik Wood, director of IoT Secure MCU products, Infineon Technologies. “This next-level of certification further assures our IoT solution developers that their smart, connected devices are built on a secured foundation, in line with PSA. Additionally, this certification builds on our secured platform, making customers’ lives simpler, and more secured.”
