SINGAPORE--28 Jun--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

To date, Infineon Technologies has sold 1.5 billion security chips based on the award-winning Integrity Guard technology. Infineon provides unrivalled security solutions for enabling the protection of today and tomorrow's government-issued electronic ID documents like passports from potential security attacks. Applications with high data security requirements for a long life cycle require Integrity Guard technology.

Integrity Guard sets the technological standard for chip-based security

Integrity Guard is a security technology inspired by the storage and processing of information within living cells -- specifically, the double helix of DNA. The technical realization of this innovation equips controllers with robust digital mechanisms to protect data and react autonomously to security threats. Integrity Guard features a complex digital security architecture. It includes a comprehensive encryption of the entire data path and a self-checking dual CPU core. Even if attackers eavesdrop on the data signals, all they see is encrypted and illegible information. For the first time ever, both CPUs make use of fully hardware-encrypted algorithms with different dynamic keys. This is only possible because Infineon has implemented the CPUs and encrypted operations from scratch.

Awarded for outstanding innovation

Infineon's Integrity Guard technology was awarded Germany's Industry Innovation Award and Sesame Award for outstanding innovation in digital security technology. The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) confirmed the high level of security of Infineon's Integrity Guard-based security chips, using the "Common Criteria" as a basis -- the internationally recognized standard for the rigorous assessment and certification of security chips. More than 20 Common Criteria EAL 6+ Certificates, maintenance certificates or reassessments for security controllers based on Integrity Guard have been achieved.
