Developing IoT devices without security is like cooking fish&chips without a fryer – the result is hardly going to be perfect. With millions of connections and objects that speak to each other you really want to make sure that your products are immune to hacking, cloning and counterfeiting. Achieving this needs clever strategies that enable you to clearly identify electronic objects.

In order to enable companies to gain easy access to personalized security hardware, EBV has joined forces with Infineon and Data I/O to create a new supply chain service that is unique in the industry. Learn how you can benefit from customized secure elements and how our personalization service for security hardware works in the infographic below.

Visit EBV at the embedded world fair next week in hall 3A, booth 229 to get in touch with our security specialists and for a demo of the programming process.

Identification of electronic devices is of tremendous importance for security. When establishing a connection between devices or to the internet proof of identity and origin enables to reliably determine who is sending/receiving data.
In addition, device authentication can prevent financial damage and image loss through cloning of products and consumables. The ROI that can be generated by ensuring that a certain product will only work with original consumables and extensions outweighs the investment on security hardware clearly.

Personalized secure elements that are custom programmed and contain unique information about the manufacturer are incredibly efficient and perfectly suited to protect devices with accurate identification.
However, custom programmed security hardware is usually available only for mass production with high-volumes as the required programming equipment and expertise is expensive.

EBV Elektronik, Infineon and Data I/O recognized this issue and collaborated in order to set-up a process that enables cost-efficient and reliable integration of customized security hardware into your supply chain independently of production volume.

The result is a remarkably efficient process. EBV Elektronik supports you with the definition of the OEM certificate and programming parameters. Within our logistic backbone, the Avnet Logistics Solutions Warehouse, a Data I/O programming machine is used to customize Infineon OPTIGA™ Trust E devices in a secure environment. The devices are packed and shipped and can be integrated into your manufacturing process without any special equipment just like other electronic components.
