Silicon Labs announced that its hardware and software technologies dedicated to securing Internet of Things (IoT) devices against growing and evolving threats have earned third-party IoT security certifications from both PSA Certified and the ioXt Alliance.
Secure Vault, available September 9 in Silicon Labs’ new EFR32MG21B
Silicon Labs’ xG22 Thunderboard and EFR32MG21B development kits also achieved SmartCert security certification status from the ioXt Alliance, recognized as a global standard for IoT security. Because the ioXt Alliance allows for certification inheritance, these Silicon Labs ioXt certifications can be leveraged by any device manufacturer using Silicon Labs’ xG22 and xG21B to greatly reduce their own device level ioXt certification time and effort.
Silicon Labs’ Secure Vault is a new suite of state-of-the-art security features designed to help connected device manufacturers address escalating IoT security threats and regulatory pressures. Silicon Labs’ Wireless Gecko Series 2 platform takes advantage of Secure Vault technologies by combining best-in-class security features such as secure boot based on hardware root of trust, secure debug, physical tamper, secure identity for attestation and physically unclonable function (PUF) key management technology to greatly reduce the risk of IoT security breaches and compromised intellectual property.
