NXP announced the au10tic family of secure microcontrollers is being markted for device authentication in different applications including information and communication technologies, industrial equipment and medical devices.
The au10tic secure microcontrollers are based on NXP’s technology which has been used for securing government ID cards and passports, as well as smart cards for banking and other applications.
The NXP au10tic family can be used for authentication of both devices and users accessing secure content and services, and for device identification to enable secure machine-to-machine communication. The chips can be integrated into a variety of consumer products, from smart phones, laptops and tablets to game consoles and electronic accessories.
The solutions provide a tamper-resistant security solution via key generation and programming services, as well as the option for remote management of applications and credentials running on the secure microcontroller.
Using au10tic, brand owners can prevent counterfeiting, which enhances customers’ brand experience as they use genuine products, and protect software content and services against unauthorized use and distribution.
