Atmel Is First Company to Achieve FIPS 140-2 Certification For Trusted Computing Platform Modules

By Completing Stringent Certification Standards, Atmel's AT97SC3204 Trusted Platform Modules Deliver an Exceptional Level of Security for Internet-Connected Devices

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan.15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML), a global leader in microcontroller and touch technology solutions, today announced it is the world's first supplier to be awarded full FIPS 140-2 certification for its AT97SC3204 series of trusted platform modules (TPM). With this rigorous certification, these products now provide customers the highest level of confidence in hardware security for smartphones, tablets, phablets and any other computing devices including those that contain Atmel microcontrollers.

FIPS140-2 certification was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the US government agency that works with industries to develop and apply technology, measurements and standards, to ensure that best security practices are implemented in security modules. To achieve this certification, vendors must pass a stringent testing process performed by independent accredited Cryptographic and Security Testing (CST) laboratories with NIST serving as the final validation authority, validating test results and issuing certificates.

In this era of cloud computing and increased connectivity in the Internet of Things, devices are smarter and more connected. Security is a primary concern among every company within the computing supply chain as well as consumers. With Atmel's FIPs-certified AT97SC3204 trusted platform modules, designers can be confident that these flexible, easy-to-use modules offer the most secure hardware features for their embedded designs.

Modules are available in FIPS/flexible-mode which reduce supply chain complexity by supporting both standard and FIPS-mode platforms with the same device and part number. Modules with FIPS/flexible mode permanently set and lock the device into either standard or FIPS 140-2 certified mode during the platform/device initialization. Alternatively, Atmel is also offering pre-configured FIPs or standard-mode devices which simplify the initialization process. 

"We are excited to be the first company to achieve the FIPS 140-2 certification which will enable our customers the opportunity to design and build trusted computing platforms that implement a truly secure system," said Todd Slack, Product Line Manager of Trusted Platform Solutions, Atmel Corporation. "By providing both pre-configured and flexible-mode devices, we provide our customers the ultimate flexibility and ease-of-use during their trusted platform design projects."

Pricing and Availability 
Atmel's AT97SC3204 trusted modules are available in mass production today. Pricing starts at USD $2.75 for 10,000 piece quantities.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
