  • Expansion of STSAFE family with latest Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs) extends support for state-of-the-art hardware-based online security
  • Largest on-chip memory in the market provides greater storage for sensitive data
  • Devices are certified to highest security-industry standards and supported by independent Certification Authority (CA)

STMicroelectronics introduces two state-of-the-art security modules that provide an industry-validated shield to protect computers and smart connected devices against cyber-attacks.

The new STSAFE Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) store system-authentication data such as cryptographic keys and software measurements in inaccessible and unalterable hardware, offering an industry-standardized way to protect PCs and servers, as well as other home and office equipment such as printers, copiers, home gateways, network routers, and switches. This protected storage prevents attackers from interfering with the device’s integrity, stealing private data, or taking over the system to gain unauthorized access or privileges that would put the system, data, or its network at risk.

STSAFE Trusted Platform Modules

“Robust security is central to maintaining trust in the rapidly growing number of smart connected devices that support the way we live and work,” said Marie-France Florentin, General Manager, Secure Microcontrollers Division, STMicroelectronics. “Our state-of-the-art security modules combine the latest trusted computing technology with value-added features that enable superior protection for end-users’ privacy and safety.”

The Trusted Computing Group’s latest TPM 2.0 specification adds extra features over and above the earlier TPM 1.2, including cryptographic algorithms and support for user hierarchies. The first of ST’s new STSAFE-TPM devices, the ST33TPHF2ESPI, supports both specifications and can switch easily between the two, allowing OEMs to provide TPM 1.2 or TPM 2.0 capability on the latest device technology. The second device is the ST33TPHF20SPI, which supports TPM 2.0 and has the largest non-volatile memory in the market to provide up to 110Kbytes storage for sensitive data.

The ST33HTPH2ESPI and ST33HTPH20SPI are available in either a TSSOP28 or QFN32 package. Both devices are in production now. Please contact your ST sales office for pricing options and sample requests.

STSAFE is a family of authentication products offering turn-key solutions. All STSAFE products rely on highly secure MCUs that achieve top-level Common Criteria EAL5+ certification, as certified by independent labs. The STSAFE product family is aimed at offering well-tailored solutions to meet the increasing security challenges in Trusted Computing, Brand Protection, and the IoT.
